UPDATE: Family Wants Answers in Jessieville Death Investigation

GARLAND COUNTY, Ark. -  A man was found dead at his home in Jessieville Friday (3/10) morning and now his family wants answers.
 
The Garland County Sheriff's Office says investigators interviewed the man's girlfriend but no arrests have been reported.
 
Keri Overton's family still isn't sure what exactly happened to her brother Robby Ragsdale, 44, inside his home on Pipkin Street.
 
"Shock. I mean I just can't believe this happened," said the victim's sister, Keri Overton. "He was a great guy and he's definitely gonna be missed."
 
Overton says her mother, who lives across the street, was brought over by his frantic girlfriend around 6 a.m. She told them Robby was hurt but it was much more serious than that.
 
"When she got over there he was laid on the floor and blood all over him and on the floor," Overton added.
 
She says GCSO stuck around the home for several hours was told it appeared her brother was shot in the leg and bled out. She was also told it may have been an accident while working on a gun. 
 
"The stories don't add up in my opinion," she countered.
 
She continued that her brother had handled guns his whole life and was a volunteer EMT for the local fire department.
 
Overton suggests an accident like this at 6 in the morning doesn't make sense.
 
"I mean did he lay over there all night?" she wondered. "Was he there for two hours and died? I mean what happened?"
