David R. Kidder, age 65 of Hot Springs, formerly of Malvern, passed away June 26, 2014.
Our first report from the sheriff's office regarding roadblocks in the Gifford area earlier today (Friday, June 27) was that officers were searching for a suspect in an auto theft, not Timothy Buffington who recently escaped from the ADC/Pine Bluff Unit.
ADC told Staff Writer Ashley Haugland that they received a call about a possible sighting of Buffington in the Gifford area. Roadblocks were setup and a search of the area was organized in response to the citizen's tip. ADC officials were unable to confirm the presence of the escapee or the legitimacy of the sighting.
Richard C. â€śMobyâ€ť Latshaw Jr, age 65, of Malvern passed away June 24, 2014.

The MDR just learned that this year's Brickfest will be using Brick Bucks as currency for food vendors, drink stations and carnival rides. $1= 1 Brick Buck. Brick Bucks can be purchased at four locations at Malvern City Park. One of those locations will accept debit and credit cards. More details about Brick Bucks will be included in the Saturday MDR.
