Police: Intruder likely also shot in home-invasion robbery that left Hot Springs man dead

by Josh Snyder
Authorities believe one of the intruders responsible for a deadly home-invasion robbery last month in Hot Springs was also shot during the crime.

Officers found the body of Kenneth Kelly Jr., 23, on June 13 after responding to the 200 block of Portland Street, according to a news release by the Hot Springs Police Department. Authorities said Kelly was shot in his home during an apparent robbery by two male assailants.

Investigators found blood at the scene that didn’t match the victim’s, suggesting that one of the intruders had also been shot, said Hot Springs Police Department Detective Scott Lampinen.

Police described one of the robbers as standing roughly 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a medium build and twisted dreadlocks. The other robber stands about 5 feet 9 inches tall and has a slender build, according to authorities. Both assailants are believed to be in their early 20s or younger, the release states.

Authorities said Kelly’s friends and family and Carrigan Funeral Home are offering a $1,500 reward for information that results in arrests and convictions.

Lampinen said investigators are also encouraging the public to recall anything that might help police locate a suspect.

Mixed bag today, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes. One mort, one on the sick list, and two in the wind. One of the two may be leaking; lets hope it’s nothing trivial.

    “after midnight Thursday in an alley”

    Off topic, depending on your views anyway, Jeffry Epstein apparently attempted Arkancide.

    Who, in corrections, didn’t see -that- one coming….

    OK AW1Ed, get you some more coffee. Repeat on the Alabama story from yesterday. Not that I’m complaining, I personally don’t mind repeats. I understand you have a full plate, all the reviewing, postings, day job, satisfying Mrs. AW1Ed, meeting with Julia Child wanna bees for the Thursday are for cooking brunch, keeping an “eyes” out on my shenanigans, PLUS the distraction of that fine example of the most Saintly John Moses Browning (Howitzer be his name) design. Its classic beauty, the unmarred by fru fru bling clean lines. The lack of polymers. The knowledge of the knock down punch.

    Damn…there’s that involuntary vascular reaction…again.

    Today’s lesson boys and girls, stay out of alleys after dark, and get more of a description v tall with dreadlocks and young slim. Didn’t notice anything particular about the perps?

    Keep Slick Willie’s perverted partner safe at least until the bastard can testify in court. The feds brought down Al Capone, not for murder but for tax evasion. Maybe this will bring down the Clinton Crime Syndicate…finally!

      Former GF got followed home from school by guy that exposed himself.
      Fast forward to the trial:
      Defense: are you absolutely sure he is the person that exposed himself?
      GF: Yes! and if he drops his pants I can further identify him.

      God, I loved that woman.

        A relative of mine, at five, was flashed in a Wal-Mart. Chip off her Mom’s block, she pointed and called out, loudly:

        That’s -so- pathetic!

        He ran.

        Five, and already the Princess of Snark.

  4. That guy would have been better off a HEAD if he didn’t go into the alley,oops, I guess he did.
