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."

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
