PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - Pine Bluff Mayor Debe Hollingsworth said the investigation of 107-year-old Monroe Isadore could go to an external party.
"There were some hard questions last night, and we knew there would be," Mayor Debe Hollingsworth told THV11.
At Monday night's town hall meeting, several Pine Bluff residents showed up demanding answers in the death of 107-year-old Monroe Isadore.
"You gonna let a prosecutor in your same house, investigate your house?" asked one resident. "That is impossible to come to a fair conclusion."
Others agreed with this upset neighbor, saying the results of the investigation could be biased if it is done internally by the city's prosecuting attorney.
Prosecuting Attorney Kyle Hunter declined to speak to THV11 on camera; however, he said it is his job to determine whether or not actions are justified. He told THV11 that it does not create a conflict of interest for him.
