June 19, 2019

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) — Police in Pine Bluff say homicide is now suspected in the death of a man whose body was found last week inside a burned home in Pine Bluff.

Firefighters initially said no foul play was suspected, but police on Wednesday said the death is now being investigated as a homicide.

Police did not say what led investigators to think that 36-year-old Chris Jones was killed and have not identified any suspects.

Jones’ body was found Friday after firefighters put out the flames at the home.
