ORIGINAL STORY:
 
SHERWOOD, Ark. – A teenager was found dead around 2:30 p.m. Thursday in a car in just yards away from the Sherwood Police Station. 
 
Jeff Barber and his brother study the Bible right outside the Sherwood Library where Barber works. He spends most of his days in the area that stays busy.
 
“We have the library, the rec center, the senior citizen center, down there is the police station, and school right behind me,” said Barber. 
 
Just feet away, police are still searching for answers to what happened in the Bill Harmon Recreation Center parking lot. 
 
“I see a lot of people everyday, and I don’t hear about anything bad happening very often,” said Barber. 
 
Students at Sylvan Hills High say Bryan Thompson, 17, was found dead in a car Thursday afternoon. 
 
A makeshift memorial has been set up in a school parking space. It leaves many speechless, even those who didn’t know him personally. 
 
“I really don’t know what to say. This community is probably one of the safest communities I know of. I’ve lived here my whole life,” said Zach Parkhurst. 
 
As Barber continues to study the Bible, he knows one thing for sure, his heart goes out to those who knew Bryan best. 
 
“You feel for his family. He’s in our prayers,” said Barber.
