Deaths in LR

Posted By on Wed, Nov 8, 2006 at 2:24 PM


Curtis Tate, 45, a former employee of the Historic Arkansas Museum who was known for his acting roles, particularly in depicting characters of territorial days, died in Little Rock police custody Tuesday night.


According to police reports, Tate was subdued by residents of the 2100 block of Ringo Street after he broke windows of houses in the neighborhood. He had a history of drug use, the coroner’s office said.


When officers arrived, Tate reportedly became combative, so he was cuffed and placed in a  patrol car, where he became non-responsive. An ambulance was called, but he died about 11 p.m. The coroner said an autopsy showed no sign of trauma to Tate’s body. Toxicology reports are pending, but there’s a suspicion the death is related to drug use.


Also: About 1:40 a.m. this morning, Little Rock chalked up another homicide in the 1900 block of Pulaski Street. Luke Walker, 22, was gunned down by a masked man who got out of a vehicle as Walker was walking with his girlfriend. The gunman fired one shot to Walker's head, then got back into the vehicle and fled.
