Prosecutor: Waiting for lab work in child death case

Posted By on Mon, Aug 24, 2015 at 8:14 AM

Scott Ellington, named special prosecutor in the suspected heat-related death of a child in Hot Springs a month ago, says he's still awaiting final lab reports for making a decision in the case.

Thomas Naramore, the 18-month-old son of Circuit Judge Wade Naramore, was found dead by emergency workers responding to a call to his father's car in the family's neighborhood. 

A preliminary finding by the state medical examiner was that the death was heat-related. Naramore's cases in juvenile court have been handled by other judges since the death was reported. A complaint has been filed against the judge with the state's judicial ethics agency, but it has said it would await completion of the  criminal investigation before moving forward on its review.

Ellington responded briefly to my question by Internet message this morning. I was curious on developments after being away for two weeks with no news of the case.

He didn't specify lab work. But investigative work could extend beyond medical reports to examination of cell phone records, for example.
