Mountain Home cops have a 2 p.m. news conference today on the stabbing death of a local urologist, Dr. David Millstein. One potential point of interest is that his wife Lois had a previous husband, Jerry Parks, who died in 1993 in a still-unsolved Little Rock case. The Parks case became notorious because political enemies of Bill Clinton suggested he was killed because of knowledge about the Clinton campaign. Parks had once provided security guard service for the Clinton campaign offices.
UPDATE: No bombshells today. The police did reveal that warrants were served recently to search a residence and a car "outside Baxter County," (State Police from Troop A in Little Rock assisted) but no other details were released. A police spokesman said the investigation was "complex," that information had been submitted to the state Crime Lab and that some people had come forward with useful information. He urged others with information related to the case to call the tip line at 870-424-4357. The police chief said there were no suspects at the moment.
