Four North Little Rock schools up for sale


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The fate of four schools in North Little Rock is up in the air. Even while vacant, they're costing the district money. The options on the table are to sell or demolish.

"That's a landmark," said Lisa Gray. "Let's keep it education wise."

Gray spent seven years working at Argenta Elementary School.

"I think what they should do with it is keep it as a computer lab, or maybe something where the parents can go in and learn to maybe use computers or use it for a GED center," she said.

Argenta is one of four schools (Baring Cross, Rose City and Lynch Drive) up for sale by the North Little Rock School District. Even though they aren't being used by the district, utilities, insurance and continued security are all continued costs.

25K reward offered in NLR cold case


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV)- A central Arkansas woman is making a plea for justice in her father's murder. Leslie Suggs says her father, 64-year old Butch Kennedy, was shot to death in his North Little Rock home last May.

"It happened after work, in between the hours of probably 6 and 10 that evening."

On May 28, Suggs says her father was killed inside his home on Locust Street in North Little Rock.

"At this point I don't really have any facts to the case. Our family does still stay in touch with the detective weekly, but has gotten to the point that we as a family wanted to get the reward out to raise the reward hoping that someone is out there is contemplating doing the right thing."

Butch Kennedy was a Marine, Vietnam Veteran and a CPA.

Suggs says by all accounts, her father lived a clean, honest life, making his killing all the more puzzling.
