Lt. Carl Minden with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office has released details on an apparent inmate suicide attempt last night at the Pulaski County Regional Detention Center. Minden  said the inmate, Donald Rackley, 46, died this afternoon. 

According to an incident report in the case, just after 7 p.m. last night, a guard discovered Rackley sitting in his cell on the floor with one end of a sheet tied around his neck and the other end of the sheet tied to the top bunk in his cell. Officers administered CPR until paramedics arrived, at which point Rackley was transported to UAMS.

Minden said that an investigation will be conducted by the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division, but adds that at this point, there doesn't appear to be anything suspicious about the death.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
