Mandatory civil emergency curfew in effect due to unnecessary violence



Little Rock, Arkansas – Due to a “rash of senseless violence,” the mayor of Eudora, Arkansas, has declared a “mandatory civil emergency curfew” that will begin immediately.

The curfew, according to mayor Tomeka Butler, will last from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. On Monday, the curfew was implemented, and a video was posted to the city’s Facebook page.

Work and medical reasons will be the sole exceptions. The Eudora City Police Department will strictly enforce the curfew, according to the mayor.

“Should you be caught during curfew hours you will be subject to being stopped and searched,” Butler.

To provide an update on the violence, a town hall meeting will be held Thursday at 6:00 p.m. in the Eudora commencement building.

The death of Martene S. Frazell, 47, of Eudora on Saturday was one of many violent incidents.

The death of Ms. Frazell and the injuries suffered by Eudora resident Jemaine Lindsey, 40, is being looked into by the Arkansas State Police.

On Christmas Eve, at 7:30 p.m., Chicot County Sheriff’s Deputies got in touch with ASP to ask for help with the investigation after Eudora police officers found both victims while responding to an apartment building at 604 East Compress Street.

This inquiry is still being conducted.
