Sources identify Ark. child who died in hot car


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - Hot Springs ambulances responded to a scene Friday afternoon regarding a toddler who was left in a hot car.

The 2-year-old died Friday, July 24, and sources tell THV11 it may have happened to the son of a Garland County judge.

Multiple sources have reported that the child is Thomas Naramore, the son of Garland County circuit judge Wade Naramore.

Ambulances were called to Fair Oaks Place, which was blocks away from the Naramore's home. Medical personnel tried to resuscitate the toddler when they found him in the car, but the child did not make it.

Jeff Saunders is the fire department's shift commander and he stated that when crews arrived, it was already too late. "This is very tragic," said Saunders. "You always seem to put yourself in that same spot if that were to happen to you, and that's just something that you can't imagine," said Saunders.

15 cars broken into at Magic Springs


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - Hot Springs police confirmed that someone broke into 15 cars in the Magic Springs parking lot on Saturday.

Police say some cars were unlocked, but others had their windows smashed.

"She's like 'Your windows broken. Somebody broke into your van' at first I thought she was kidding," said Rich Cadwalader, who drove with Terri Smith, and two others to the "Three Doors Down" concert at Magic Springs last weekend.

"We had fun, but going through a situation like that was very hectic," said Smith.

The suspect left behind plenty of broken glass, but stole two bags, one with clothes and toiletries, and the other was a purse left underneath a back seat.

"She had over $200. She just got paid, driver's license, birth certificate, her car keys, her house keys," said Smith.
