The death of a man whose body was found in a Newark apartment Tuesday is being investigated as a homicide, the Arkansas State Police said.
The body was found inside an apartment unit at 805 Long St., according to a state police news release. Authorities believe the man, whose identity was not confirmed Wednesday, lived at the Long Street address.
Sheriff's deputies were called to the address after a caretaker discovered the body inside a unit around 2 p.m., according to the release.
The body was taken to the state Crime Laboratory for forensic examination. The examination is expected to confirm the man's identity, as well as cause, manner and time of death, authorities said.
One person has been detained and is being questioned by the state police at the Independence County jail, according to the release.
