  • An autopsy performed at the state Crime Laboratory will reveal the official cause of death of Sandy Carl Huckabee, the Arkadelphia man who was found dead inside his Forrest Park Drive home early Sunday morning.
    Sgt. Roy Bethell, criminal investigator for the Arkadelphia Police Department, said Monday that police believe Huckabee's killer, 36-year-old Donald Hux, shot Huckabee in the head with a shotgun sometime after midnight on Sunday.
    Bethell said the autopsy will determine what caliber shotgun was used in the shooting.
    Following Huckabee's murder, Hux then apparently kidnapped Amy Huckabee, who was Hux's ex-wife, and the former couple's three children. Hux released the juveniles into the care of his parents in Union County. They were reportedly unharmed.
    Hux was killed late Sunday night in a shootout with Union County police. Details remain sketchy regarding the shootout. Before Hux was killed, he reportedly shot and killed Amy Huckabee.
