Stabbing in Hot Springs Friday Night leaves One Man Dead

A man faces murder charges after stabbing a victim to death in Garland County Friday night.

Lt. James Martin said 40-year-old Shea O’Neill is charged with second degree murder following the stabbing death of 23-year-old Easton Hogue around the area of Amity Road and South Moore Road on Nov. 8.

O’Neill was found on the side of the road at around 10 p.m. near the stabbing location trying to flag down traffic, Martin said; O’Neill was bloody and had apparently been beaten about the head.

Hogue was brought to Mercy Hospital sometime later by three people in a private vehicle; he eventually died as a result of his injuries, according to Martin.

The case is not without some conflicting accounts. Martin said O’Neill claims he was defending himself against two men who attacked him in the car, and the witnesses that brought Hogue to the hospital said O’Neill had gotten into a verbal dispute with another man present and eventually lunged into Hogue from the front seat.

At the time of this report, O’Neill was in the hospital for observation; his condition is unknown.

    Eston Hogue was a good man, he did not deserve to have this happen, and I for one hope they throw the book at the idiot who resorted to murder of another person. Eston was a loving father and hard worker, he had many people who liked and loved him and he will be dearly missed by all that knew him.

      I agree! Known him for years! Sad sad sad. 40 yr old taking the life of someone half his age. Oneill has had forty years to experience life. Eston was robbed of his life at the young age of 23. Makes me sick. Prayers for family and friends. God gained another awesome angel. He will b missed.

        Prayers for all definitely but again there is always more to it! She’s O’Neill is a good man, he was defending himself, something anyone would do if they were being beaten from behind!

      THE SAD THING IS SOMEONE HAS LOST A SON, BROTHER ETC. ON BOTH SIDES, I DONT THINK THIS MAN JUST PULLED A KNIFE OUT AND JUST STABBED THIS GUY, SOMEONE WAS PUSHED TO THE LIMIT, NOW SHEA WAS BEATING, AND THE LAW SAYS, IF ANY PERSON IS INJURED OR FEAR OF HIS/HER LIFE, THEY CAN USE HARM TOWARDS THAT PERSON, THE POINT IS I UNDERSTAND THIS WAS A LOVING YOUNG MAN, AND HE PROBALY WAS, BUT THE PEOPLE HE WAS WITH GOT HIM INTO SOME BAD TROUBLE, IM BLACK AND I MUST SAY, I THINK THIS MAN WAS INNOCENT AND WAS SET UP

    Eston always stayed to his self and took care of his family. He was a hard working man who tried his hardest to stay away from drama and for that man to murder him like that was just not called for at all. ESTON YOU WILL BE TRULY MISSED BY YOUR LOVE ONE..I LOVE YOU AND WATCH OVER US FROM ABOVE!!!

      Does that even matter? They pulled over to smoke pot! Big deal! That has nothing to do with Eston being murdered! It’s irrelevant.

        November 11, 2013 at 12:47 pm

        No one deserves to be murdered but Shea was defending himself from being beaten, attacked, & robbed. Clearly Eston wasn’t innocent in all of this nor were the other two people!

      At this point that is irrelevant. An innocent young man’s life was taken so if you do not have anything nice to say do not say anything at all!!! Have some respect for his grieving family and friends.

        “Innocent young man” ??? Except for attacking and attempting to rob that Guy you mean…Right? Or do you chose to believe that a man, attacked another man (a Stranger?) with a knife from the front seat of a car IN FRONT OF 2 OF HIS FRIENDS…. Really??? So why didn’t the “victims” call police with some crazy guy attacking “innocent” young men Randomly? REALLY?????

    No one knows for sure what happened in or out of the car at the time of the stabbing, unless you were there and then you may not be sure even then. I’m sorry a young man lost his life and another man was also hurt, just keep both families in our prayers for them to find the truth of the matter. My prayers are with the families of both.

    S.O was attacked. They were hiding in the back seat. it was a set up. This makes me sick. He was defending himself. I am very sad that anyone lost a life in this situation. I wish it had not happened at all.. I wish the real story would come out and that the back story would be told that led to this happening. Its very sick.

      I totally agree with you “:(“it was a set up from the start. Not one thing is mentioned that they were trying to rob him and severely beat him before he defended himself. It is sad that someone lost their life in this but that choice was made when they decided to hide in the backseat and jump someone to rob them.

    Sounds Like another Trayvon Martin Case. Black man attacks White man… White man kills Black man in Self-defense and the Black Community is blinded by their own Hatred. Forget that SO had the back of his head beaten… Hmmmm??? Now how could that have happened if SO attacked them? Forget that The “Victims” of this random, and without cause attack didn’t call police…. Y’all seem to ignore the Facts and Logic when a White man kills a Black man…. so sad.

    Another Riddle. If the Guy had a gun and it was taken away…. Where is it? If the Guy didn’t have a gun… Why the Lie? Defies Logic. If the “Victims”…”Friends”… didn’t call 911 or didn’t go STRAIGHT to the Hosp. THEY should be charged with letting their….”Friend”….bleed to death.

    He is from Texarkana. Im sure as more details come out about that night the finger wont be pointed at S.O for to long. The back story that led to this is what is scary. If that would come out than people would think different about the “friends” in the car. Like I said, S.O was being attacked for a SICK reason and he was defending himself. Its crazy what people will do these days. Always think twice when you think you know someone. I agree with you as well! Why didn’t they call the cops right away. why BECAUSE they had to get a story together. In return a young man lost his life. Maybe if he wasn’t hanging out with this certain person he wouldn’t of been asked to hide in the back seat. It is very sad that he lost his life, maybe his ” friends” should of taken him to the hospital right away if they weren’t doing anything wrong. The “friends” should of known better. They only knew that they wanted to hurt S.O. In return one lost a life and one is in the hospital.

      :( —- I feel you and I are very much so on the same page. You feel you really know someone… Then this. There are so many little yet important details that they more then likely will come upon. They always do. You would also think the people you feel you can trust would be smarter then to think they could get away with something so horrible. Even when you love somebody, what’s wrong is WRONG, what’s right is RIGHT. This is all very sad. And people out there all over are suffering from it. I pray for any and everyone it is affecting. RIP Eston.

    The guy has been giving the girl money for awhile… The girl got with the black guy and told him about the guy always having money so they planned to set him up and rob him. It isn’t fair that He got killed but it is only the white guy defending himself. She probably found out she got pregnant by the black guy and knew the white guy was going to stop giving her money once he found out so she sold him out to get robbed… It’s a sad situation that the girl put them both in!!

    I know all of them… It just seems that’s how it went because she found out she was pregnant and a guy that has been giving someone money would not want to continue giving them money if they were to find out the girl has gotten pregnant by the next guy.. But she did tell everybody that she told Eston about the guy having money and how they were going to do it.. She put them both in the situation and they wouldn’t have been in the vehicle together if it wasn’t for her

      Anybody that really knew Sally, knw the situation with Shea, Eston, and herself. No, they are not strangers, no this as not an out of nowhere thing. Luckily, she moves on quickly because if it wasn’t eston, it would have been the other guy that left her because of the games she plays. I know Shea, not to well, but well enough to know he DOES NOT smoke pot, he does not like eston, never has, and Shea and sally have been fighting for a couple weeks. So
      These are all reason why Shea would not knowingly get into the same vehicle with those 3 individuals. Can anyone tell me why reports say shea was picked up by sheriffs nearly a half hour before the other 3 arrived at the hospital? Didn’t they leave first…? I’m pretty sure if my man is bleeding out I’m going at least 75 mph down amity. Stay outta my way, cuz I wouldn’t be stopping. I would have arrived at mercy hospital from there in less then 10 mins. That IS A FACT.
