Victim identified in yesterday's homicide — UPDATE

Posted By on Wed, Apr 16, 2014 at 6:28 AM

The Little Rock Police Department has identified a woman found dead in her home yesterday near Boyle Park, the victim of an apparent homicide. The woman has been identified as Debbie Bush, 56, who lived at the house where her body was found at 4122 Tatum Street. A report says she was an employee of the Little Rock School District.

In a statement released by LRSD Superintendent Dexter Suggs, Suggs said that Bush was a member of the district's child nutrition department for over 30 years, and was on staff at Wilson Elementary, at 4015 Stannus Road near UALR.  Suggs said grief counselors will be made available to students and staff at the school.

The report from the LRPD says that Bush's co-worker went to the house on Tatum St. around 11 a.m. yesterday after Bush didn't show up for work and couldn't be reached by phone. Finding the carport door unlocked, the woman entered the house, and found Bush dead in her bedroom, with blood on her body, the floor and bed. Police also said that Bush's car, a beige 2002 Cadillac DeVille four-door sedan, was missing from the location and is believed to have been stolen from the house on Tatum Street. 

UPDATE: A release from the LRPD this morning said Bush's car was found around 9 p.m. last night in the 7600 block of Morris Drive, in Southwest Little Rock, just north of the intersection of Chicot Rd. and Mabelvale Cutoff. Police request that anyone who might have any knowledge about the occupants of Bush's vehicle should call (501)371-4660. Bush's Cadillac is similar to the one seen at this link. The cause and time of Bush's death haven't been determined.

  • 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.
