Home Where K-9 Deputy Found Murdered Destroyed by Fire

HOT SPRING COUNTY, Ark -- The home where a Central Arkansas K-9 was found murdered this summer was destroyed by a fire Sunday.

Glen Rose firefighters said they have no idea yet what, or possibly who, started the house fire.

They said they are not sure if it has anything to do with K-9 Luky's unsolved murder from July, but are working to find an answer.

Joshua Jones a few houses down from where the house burned up.

"It's just kind of weird seeing yellow tape in a neighborhood like mine," said Jones. "There's nothing ever going on over there.

Another neighbor captured video of smoke billowing from the house and firefighters on scene.

"It's kind of wild because you wouldn't think that stuff would happen in your backyard," said Jones. "I don't know what caused it either I just know it was pretty charred."

Investigators said no one was around when it sparked.

"Thank God nobody was home and they didn't get burnt," said Jones.

It's the same home where Luky, who worked with the Hot Spring County Sheriff's Office, was found murdered late July.

The sheriff say the dog, who suffered a ruptured diaphragm and had blood on one of his legs, died from either being hit by a car or being beaten to death.

"It's not the best thing in the world to hear something like that," said Jones.

Fire investigators said they hope to have their reports done by next week.
