Police beat -- UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Dec 17, 2007 at 10:28 AM

KTHV has a report on what appears to be a home intrusion slaying at an apartment at 121 N. Jackson last night, just across Markham from War Memorial Park.

UPDATE: Police Lt. Terry Hastings called while I was out and now I"ve gotten in touch with him. He said police are sure now that the death of Yaki Beardon, 27, was NOT the result of a home intrusion. A door at the apartment was kicked in, but the body had no visible wounds and an autopsy was being performed today to determine the cause of death. At this point, police are not even calling the death a homicide, but a "suspcious death." More later if I get it.

UPDATE: Cause of death undetermined, pending toxicology reports, Hastings said. Police seem certain the death was not a homicide.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
