🕵️♂️🚀 Crime Lab Maestro’s Great Escape: A Retirement Story from Arkansas
TL;DR: 🎬🥽🔍 After a commendable stint of over 15 years, the fearless Sherlock of the Arkansas State Crime Lab, Kermit Channell, is handing in his magnifying glass 🧐. Come end of August, Channell is set to retire, with the mantle passing on to the veteran, J.R. Howard. Howard, a mastermind who’s already tasted the thrill of this position, is back for a sequel after a brief retirement break 🎭. Can he rekindle the magic of his prior reign?
📜🕵️♂️⏰ In an era of fast-food and fast-crime, Kermit Channell has been the steady hand guiding the Arkansas State Crime Lab since 2007. Clocking in 15 years, he’s finally calling it a day to kick back, relax and presumably indulge in some crime novels. But wait, what’s this plot twist? J.R. Howard, the crime lab director who warmed the seat from 2004 to 2007 is out of his retirement armchair to take the reins. Is this the start of another epic saga for the Arkansas State Crime Lab? 🤔
Howard has a quite a backstory to his crime-solving journey. 📚🕰 His previous directorial gig with the lab was interrupted when he was summoned for national duty as the U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Arkansas. It was a call of duty he couldn’t refuse. Post that, he donned the hat of the Arkansas State Police director for a brief 16-month term in 2011. In essence, he’s the crime lab veteran who has lived through the circles of the system, cracking down on felonies 🚔.
No doubt, Howard’s history is definitely action-packed. Yet, one can’t help but ponder, will this be the typical hero-returns story or more of a rocky reunion? 😜 With more than three decades of police service under his belt, he’s got the credentials. But does he have the mojo to maintain the rhythm and routine, the science and scruples of the Arkansas State Crime Lab? 🤨
To the citizens of Arkansas, we pose this question: How do you feel about the switching of the guards at your State Crime Lab? And to J.R. Howard, as he steps back into the shoes of a director, we’re all wondering… Are you ready for the sequel? 🍿🎥💼
