Attorney General puts spotlight on missing West Memphis man
Deshaun Canada missing since 2013
By JOHN RECH
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge used her “Missing Person Monday” hashtag to ask citizens about the whereabouts of a missing West Memphis man.
Timothy Deshaun Canada was last seen in the city Jan. 19, 2013. According to West Memphis Police Captain Troy Galtelli police remained baffled in the case. “To this day we don’t know what happened,” said Galtelli. “Every now and then we get a report that he has been seen. We have followed up leads all around the Tri-State area.”
Canada was 28 years old at the time he was reported missing and was reported to be 5’9” tall and 154-175 pounds. His date of birth is Sept. 17, 1984. He’d be 35 years old today.
Canada had distinct tattoos on his abdomen, chest, and arms including the phrase “God Forgives” on his upper chest, “West Town” on his upper abdomen, and his nickname “Lil Tim” on his abdomen above the navel. Details of his appearance came from Never Forgotten: Arkansas Takes Action.
Canada was last seen at Southland Casino and Racing in West Memphis. He has never been seen or heard from again.
Police have developed no motive for either Canada vanishing or foul play against him. No new information has developed since the attorney general’s latest plea.
A Crime Stoppers reward has been offered all along. Anyone with information about this case is urged to call the West Memphis Police Department dispatch center at (870) 732-7555 or Crittenden County Crime Stoppers at (870)732-4444. All calls will be kept confidential.
