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.
