    Linda Collins-Smith's family saddened, angered by her death

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The family of a former Arkansas lawmaker whose body was found at her home last week say they're saddened and angered by her death, and are confident authorities are using all their resources to solve her killing.

    Dozens of Arkansas lawmakers and others gathered at the state Capitol on Tuesday to remember former state Sen. Linda Collins, whose death is being investigated as a homicide.

    Police have not named a suspect or announced an arrest in Collins' death.

    A statement from Collins' family was released on Tuesday; it reads, in part:

    We are confident that the Randolph County Sheriff's Department and the Arkansas State Police are using all resources available to find a resolution to this investigation and put our hearts and minds at ease.

    None, other than that they were former elected state officials who were Republicans, who died with days of one another, 500 miles apart, due to gun violence.

    Oh, this one's going to be interesting!

    Arrest made - "Rebecca Lynn O’Donnell, 48, of Pocahontas is currently in custody, according to Arkansas State Police. Criminal charges are pending."

    They were friends, and Becky changed her profile pic to one of her and Collins on Monday.

    Thanks for the FB link. The comments are a gold mine of moronitude on that one. It'll be interesting to see what comes out of this case for sure. According to the comments, it's either a love triangle, a high profile human trafficking ring in the DHS, or the Clintons. I'm going to go with love triangle for $100.

    The Clintons are blamed for EVERYTHING here. It’s ridiculous and exhausting.
