Beebe family suffers loss

Posted By on Tue, Oct 24, 2006 at 3:39 PM

Anthony Taylor, the son-in-law of Ginger Beebe, wife of Attorney General Mike Beebe, this morning was found dead of an apparent suicide at the Hampton Inn in Searcy.

Taylor's wife, Tammy, is Ginger's daughter from a previous marriage. The Taylors have two young daughters.

According to a case report faxed from the Searcy police department, Sgt. Chad Crabill went to the Hampton Inn at 9:40 a.m. "to make an arrest on Anthony Taylor for misdemeanor offenses." Taylor would not answer Crabill's requests to open the door, and eventually Crabill forced his way in. "Taylor was found deceased with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound," Crabill wrote.

An autopsy has been requested and the case remains under investigation.

UPDATE: Beebe issued this statement in behalf of his family:

"We are deeply grateful for the support and prayers extended to us by so many people across the state at this time of loss. We are certain everyone will understand that this is a time we must focus our attention on supporting Tammy and the girls."
