Mark Reel is wanted by authorities in Stone County




A man from Crane who was on the run from authorities after he attempted to kill another man early Friday (0914-12) near Swinging Bridge Road was apprehended Saturday.
 
Stone County prosecutor Matt Selby says Marcus "Mark" Brent Reel, 40, of Crane, allegedly pointed a gun at Phillip Campbell and pulled the trigger....only to hear a click.  When the gun failed to fire, Reel produced a hunting knife and nearly severed one of the man's fingers in the attack. He also attempted to slice the mans throat, according to the probable cause statement. 
 
The 45 year-old Campbell told authorities that he and Reel have been engaged in a long-term feud, and he believes he was assaulted because of it.  Deputies say the victim suffered multiple injuries, including a deep cut to an index finger, split lip, bruising on the top of his head, as well as bruises to his left rib and back.
 
Reel, who is on felony probation for second-degree assault, has been charged with two counts of first-degree assault and two counts of armed criminal action. His bond is set at one million dollars.
 
If you see Reel, who is considered armed and dangerous, you're asked to call the Stone County Sheriff’s Office at 417-357-6116 or 9-1-1.
