The Arkansas State Police are investigating a

the ASP.

Special agents from the ASP’s Criminal Investigation

check on an open door.

“The deputies discovered an individual inside

who was deceased,” Frye said.

The ASP press release identified the victim as

Christopher Alvard, 37.

Alvard’s body has been transported to the Arkansas

State Crime Laboratory to determine the

exact cause and manner of death, according to the

press release.

The press release said the investigation is continuing.

No arrests had been reported by Monday

afternoon.
