Hastings back on duty

Posted By on Wed, Oct 29, 2008 at 9:29 AM

Several have asked about Lt. Terry Hastings, the lead LRPD media spokesman, who's been absent in articles about recent crimes. He has been on vacation, but he's back today and sends a note to media.

I am back in the office. I was on a 10-day cruise that went to Nova Scotia. I want to send out my thoughts and prayers to the friends and family of Anne Pressly. I learned of this horrible crime while at sea and was shocked. Any time a murder takes place it is disturbing and when it is someone you know and care about it is very difficult to understand why such a horrible crime would happen. Anne was one of my favorite reporters. I want to send out my thoughts and prayers to KATV for their loss. She was one of the best and KATV was very blessed to have her onboard. Anne was a very special person who touched all our lives. I will miss her a lot.

I want to thank Sgt. Davis for her handling of this incident. I know she may not have given as much information as you want, but please understand we need to keep the details of any investigation secret to solve the crime especially a crime that is in the public’s eye so much. I spoke with Chief Thomas shortly after this incident occurred and Sgt. Davis was responding as she was instructed by the chief and me. I have no doubt we will catch the person responsible for this crime and we will bring that person to justice. We will not be releasing any further information until we make an arrest. I am available to talk to anyone who wishes to call me. I am sorry I was not here to help in this situation and I appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
