Two dead after parents quarrel

Posted By on Sun, Sep 4, 2011 at 7:32 AM

Sad report this morning from the Pulaski County sheriff's office:

On September 3rd at about 06:00 p.m., Pulaski County Sheriff's deputies responded to 2408 Roderweis (north eastern Pulaski County) in reference to a domestic disturbance with a report of shots fired. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with several juveniles that had fled the residence. The juveniles advised the deputies that their parents were still inside the residence.

Deputies were unable to get anyone to answer the door at the residence. Based on the nature of the call and the juveniles' statements, the Special Weapons and Tactics team (SWAT) and Crisis Negotiations Unit were summoned to the scene. Deputies were still unable to make contact with anyone inside the residence.

The SWAT team made entry to the residence and located the deceased bodies of a male and female. At this time, the Sheriff's Office is conducting a death/homicide investigation. The incident appears to be a murder/suicide.

The bodies of both individuals were taken from the scene by the Pulaski County Coroner to be taken to the State Crime Lab for autopsies. The names of the individuals are not being released pending next of kin notifications.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    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.
