The search for the people who killed an 80-year-old woman found beaten under a church pew has gone nationwide.
Cross County Sheriff J.R. Smith said possibly two "people of interest" fled the area after the church pastor discovered Lillian Wilson's lifeless body Sunday.

Sheriff Smith said investigators know who they're looking for and where they are from, but would not confirm details of the ongoing investigation.
The Central United Methodist Church sits along Highway 64 in the small community of Hamlin, west of Wynne, Arkansas.
It's where Wilson grew up and where she held her 50th wedding anniversary.
The church group meets at two alternating locations and Pastor Dixon Platt said he worried something was wrong when Wilson didn't show up for service at their other meeting location.
He found Wilson beaten under a pew around noon.
Other friends said the killer possibly used a cross from the altar to beat the elderly woman to death.
"To have her life end in a place that she loved so much," said longtime friend and neighbor Linda Peeler, "It's just unbelievable."
Friends and Wilson's two sons were busy at the active 80-year-old's rural home Monday. continued Via WREG
