We take our responsibility for the well being of those we have in our custody very seriously and it is important to us, and to the family and loved ones of the deceased, that we determine exactly how and why this occurred. We will not be releasing any information or making any additional statements until Arkansas State Police Investigators have had an opportunity to complete their work. Until then any questions regarding this matter should be director to the Arkansas State Police.”
