Just in via Little Rock Police Department Twitter account:

Police on scene of a homicide at 46 Westmont Circle, an additional murder/suicide occurred overnight at 1600 Elm. PAO on scene at Westmont.
Westmont is in the Meadowcliff neighborhood west of University Avenue in

The Little Rock police said Anna Williamson, 28, was found dead in a South Elm apartment from a cause other than gunshot about 3:30 a.m. and they found the body of her boyfriend, Ernest Purdiman, fatally shot in a different apartment. Police said they believe Purdiman killed Williamson, then himself. The woman's injuries were "consistent" with a homicide, a release said.

Arkansas Online reported that Naomi Estrada, 36, was found dead about 8:15 a.m. at the Westmont address, killed by something other than gunshot.
