62-year-old Robert Camilli was convicted in Baxter County on April 6, 2006 for Sexual Indecency with a Child and Failure to Register, after he exposed himself to an adult female and a 5-year-old-girl. A press release from the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office states Camilli had convictions for sex offenses in other states as well.
On March 1, 2012, the Sheriff’s Office attempted to verify residency status and found that Camilli was no longer living at his stated address, and a warrant for his arrest was issued April 25, 2012.
During the past several weeks, the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office began receiving citizen tips indicating that Camilli was residing in the Kingman, Arizona area, moving around between RV Parks in the area. On April 7, 2014, the Sheriff’s Office was notified by authorities in Mohave County, Arizona that they had arrested and taken into custody Camilli on the outstanding Baxter County warrant.
Earlier this week, Baxter County deputies traveled to Kingman, Arizona to pick up Camilli and return him to Baxter County. He will appear in court at a later date.

(West Plains) – With support from community donors, the Ozarks Medical Center Foundation has purchased a new thermoregulation unit for the OMC Emergency Department that can help stabilize patient temperatures.
According to OMC Emergency Department Medical Director Dr. Kathy Egly, the unit circulates either warm or cool fluids through a blanket the completely covers the patient from all sides, and will allow much more controlled temperature regulation versus methods such as ice packs or chilled IV fluids.
