STEPHEN THOMAS 'STEVIE' CAMPBELL JR. - Date of Death: April 3, 1988.  Murder Charges Filed…..WINONA GRADUATE VICTIM OF SHOTGUN SHOOTING SUNDAY Winona residents who heard the news were shocked and saddened on Easter by the shooting death of 21 year-old Stephen T. CAMPBELL, Jr. early Sunday morning. First degree murder charges were filed Sunday against Joseph W. FARRIS, 28, of Willow Springs. FARRIS, who is being held in Howell County Jail with bond set at $100,000, was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday, April 5, in Shannon County Associate Circuit Court. According to Shannon County prosecuting attorney Winston BUFORD, the incident occurred about 3 a.m. on Elm Street near the northwest corner of the ball field in Winona. BUFORD said FARRIS had been driving around Winona when he encountered Campbell and four or five of his friends at the scene. 'Words were exchanged,' BUFORD said, adding that FARRIS then left and returned shortly with a shotgun. BUFORD said FARRIS fired one shot from his vehicle window. 'FARRIS pulled up and apparently an argument broke out between all of the people there,' said Shannon County Sheriff, Clinton ‘Butter’ REEVES. 'As a group, they argued back and forth. It wasn’t just between CAMPBELL and FARRIS,' REEVES stressed. According to REEVES, one witness reported that FARRIS had said, 'I’ll go get help and return,' before the shooting occurred. CAMPBELL was reportedly shot in the left rib-cage area by a single-shot .12 gauge shotgun. REEVES said it was unclear what the argument was over and that several eyewitnesses were being interviewed as the investigation continued on Monday. BUFORD and REEVES concurred that FARRIS had gone to a relative’s home in Winona to get the shotgun. Winona police officers arrested FARRIS at about 8 a.m. on Sunday as he was walking south on Hw. 17. He had apparently walked approximately 10 miles after overturning his vehicle on Texas County Rte. W. BUFORD said FARRIS took officers to the shotgun, which was found about 370 feet from his overturned vehicle according to REEVES. CAMPBELL, a popular recent graduate of Winona High School, was living in West Plains. The son of Steve and Barbara NORRIS CAMPBELL, of Winona, he is also survived by his wife, Kristie PERKINS CAMPBELL and daughter, Stephanie CAMPBELL, and brother Bradley CAMPBELL. Funeral services are set for 1 p.m. today April 6, 1988, at the First Baptist Church in Winona with Rev. Frank HALL officiating. Burial will be in the Pine Lawn Cemetery in Winona. Note: Stephen Thomas CAMPBELL, Jr. was the grandson of Thomas Lewis CAMPBELL and Merle BARNES CAMPBELL, and Gerald NORRIS and Fayetta LESLIE NORRIS SMITH.

Stevie was the kind of boy that only had to touch your life for a little while and he would remain in your heart forever. He was very easy to love and never did anything but make us proud. We’ve always known this about our son, but to see it expressed in such an overwhelming manner from our communities and far away states has given us some comfort in this dark, dark hour. I pray this ‘Than You’ will reach each and every one of you.' --- Steve, Barbara and Brad CAMPBELL The Current Wave, April 13, 1988.
