Ark. sheriff: Teen murder suspect found hanging

16-year-old suspect in teen's fatal stabbing found hanging at Ark. juvenile center, later dies By The Associated Press

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Authorities in northeast Arkansas are investigating the death of a 16-year-old boy suspected in another teen's fatal stabbing.

Independence County Sheriff Steve Jeffery says the 16-year-old was found hanging from a bedsheet Friday at a juvenile detention center in Batesville. He was taken to a local hospital and then flown to Little Rock, where he was pronounced dead early Saturday.

His death is being investigated as a suicide.

Jeffery says the teen was a suspect in the stabbing death of 18-year-old Nicholas Zurosky in Paragould, about 150 miles northeast of Little Rock.

Paragould police say Zurosky was a suspect himself in the death of another 18-year-old, Lisa Steele. She was found shot to death at the same Paragould home where Zurosky was found dead. Zurosky lived at the home.
