Shores’ Death Ruled Suicide


The Arkansas Crime Lab has ruled the cause of death of a Sebastian County inmate, Lewis Shores, 19, as suicide.

Shores was found unresponsive in his cell on November 29, 2018. He was pronounced dead that evening. Medical personnel determined Shores’ cause of death was suicide by means of a plastic trash liner, which was wrapped around his head. Reports from the Sebastian County Prosecutor were released on Friday, and those indicated that there was no evidence that anyone else was criminally responsible for the incident.

Shores was the suspect in the double homicide of Jimmy and Norma Grubb and his mother, Angela Shores.
