Hot Springs Police Officer Shoemaker reports that a victim was stabbed multiple times in Hot Springs on August 8th, 2020. The victim identified the suspect as “Bull Dog”. Bull Dog was later identified as Parolee Lloyd David McElmurry, 47, of Oakwood Avenue in Hot Springs.
The victim said that Parolee McElmurry, had a witness fill out unemployment paperwork for him a few days prior and was upset that he hadn’t received a check yet.
Inside an apartment, Parolee McElmurry pulled out two knives. He ordered the witness and the victim to a bedroom. The victim refused and Parolee McElmurry put the knife close to him and ordered him to the bedroom a second time. The witness threw an object at Parolee McElmurry which caused him to turn around. The victim then jumped on him in an attempt to take the knife. The victim was stabbed in the armpit, the arm and in the abdomen damaging his intestines and liver.
Officers were given a copy of Parolee McElmurry’s Arkansas I.D. used in the unemployment paperwork scheme at the crime scene. The ID was used to positively identify the parolee as the suspect.
An arrest warrant for Parolee McElmurry was obtained and entered into the police computer. He was in jail on unrelated charges on September 1st, 2020. HSPD officers served the warrant at that time. He is charged with Felony 1st Degree Battery with bond set at $5,000. A parole hold has been placed with bond not available.
