After more than a year of investigation, arrests have been made in a homicide death case in Henry County. Justin Emmerton’s body was found in the Grand River near Urich in June of 2013 and was initially investigated by the Rural Missouri Major Case Squad, but it was the Henry County Sheriff’s Office that brought two individuals into custody this week.
Phillip Andrew Hayduke, 19, of West Plains and Blake Cameron Jamison, 24, of Garden City are now formally charged with 1st degree murder. The court has set bond for Hayduke at $100,000, while Jamison is held on a $250,0000 bond.
Authorities also say two other persons of interest have been questioned in Johnson County in relation to the homicide.
