Arkansas man, 20, found dead in Baxter County

MIDWAY (AP) - Authorities in Baxter County are investigating after a 20-year-old man was found dead at a home near Midway.

Sheriff John Montgomery says authorities received a call at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday about a death at a home off Arkansas Highway 178 northwest of Midway. The sheriff tells Mountain Home radio station KTLO that authorities are investigating the death as a homicide, but he would not say how the victim died.

Montgomery says investigators from his department and Arkansas State Police are interviewing several people in connection with the death. The sheriff says he hopes to release more details, including the victim's name, later Thursday.
