Woman searches for answers in sister’s cold case 2 years later


MONROE, Ark. – It’s been two years since Bobbie Bryant’s sister died in a fire and there’s still no answer as to what happened that November day. 

The only things Bobbie Bryant has left to her younger sister are memories and the obituary from her funeral. 

“Everyday I’m wondering what happened to my sister. Every night I go to bed I want to know what happened to my sister. I dream of her and think of her,” says Bobbie Bryant. 

Mary Ann Bryant was originally from Crossett but moved to Monroe after her youngest son passed away. 

Bobbie didn’t know after losing her nephew, she would soon lose her sister too. 

“We had to cremate her because her body was messed up..”

Her sister died in a house fire in 2016. Monroe Police questioned persons of interest and investigated how the fire even started. 

Bobbie Bryant and her family believe it was something more than just flames that took their loved one’s life.  

“We know she was murdered from what we hear and what we’ve gathered in these two years. We just don’t know who and why.”

And even hearing about her sister’s death six days later is still puzzling to Bobbie. She says they’ve heard many stories about that day, but all they want is the truth.

“Whatever happened we’re just going to have to accept it. We don’t know what happened it’s a two-year mystery. We walk around every day not knowing what happened.”

Bryant hopes this story will rattle someone’s memory and close this unsolved case. 

Monroe Police say there isn’t any evidence at this point that will allow them to classify her death as a homicide or accidental death. 

Bryant hopes anyone with any information will come forward.
