Woman Whose Son, Husband Found Dead Released After Posting Bond

YELL COUNTY (KFSM) – A woman whose 10-month-old baby and husband were found dead in the Ouachita Mountains was released from the Yell County Jail after posting a $50,000 bond, officials said Wednesday (July 30).

Brooke Floyd, 21, of Greenwood is facing charges of child endangerment and hindering apprehension, officials said.

She appeared before Conway County Circuit Judge Jerry Don Ramy on Tuesday night (July 29) in a telephone bond hearing, according to officials.

She is being represented by Little Rock attorney Bill James, who met with her Tuesday evening.

Authorities are not releasing why Brooke Floyd was arrested, or what charges she could face in connection to the death of her son, Harper, or husband, Brian Floyd.

Authorities said they found the bodies of both Harper and Brian Floyd Tuesday afternoon (July 29) in a remote area south of Blue Mountain Lake.

Yell County Sheriff Bill Gilkey said he could not comment on whether foul play was suspected in their deaths.

A backpack was found with the bodies, along with some materials that have not identified by investigators, according to the Sheriff’s Department. Investigators said they did not find any sort of weapon at the scene.

Harper and Brian Floyd were first reported missing Friday. They were last seen in an area south of Blue Mountain Lake, after Brian Floyd’s truck broke down, authorities said.
