MT. PLEASANT MAN FOUND DEAD

 

Early Tuesday morning, February 11, Izard County deputies and the Arkansas State Police were dispatched to a field off of Lafferty Road, Mt. Pleasant in response to a body in that location. Dale E. Strader, age 58 of Mt. Pleasant was found. Sheriff Tate Lawrence said it appeared that Strader was leaving a residence the night before and possibly fell on the ice and snow. Sheriff Lawrence said there were no signs of foul play. The body, however, was sent to the state crime laboratory and a report from the medical examiner’s office said that there was no trauma to the body and that Stader likely died from natural causes or from the extreme cold. A toxicology report is pending from that office.
