The Arkansas State Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled that cause of death for Sydney Sutherland was multiple blunt force injuries and that the manner of death was homicide, Jackson County Sheriff David Lucas said Thursday evening.
Governor Hutchinson said Arkansas' numbers today indicated the state is indeed in an emergency. A total of 969 new positive coronavirus cases were reported, with 425 hospitalized, and a total of 861 deaths since March.
The White House weekly report shows Arkansas in “red zone.” Hutchinson said the report, “Reminds us that it’s a serious virus and we’ve got a lot of work to do. Its recommendations to restrict and close some businesses, if it makes sense, we’ll consider.”
Hutchinson reminded people that they have to be responsible this weekend because what happens with their behavior this weekend will impact us in the weeks to come in terms of our schools, workplace, and families. Hutchinson preached that you have to follow the social distancing guidelines.
