BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Baxter County Sheriff's Department responded to a 911 call at 148 White Tail Lane in Jordan, Arkansas Friday night, March 9th, in regards to a deceased male.  According to a press release from the Sheriff's Department, three relatives went to check on the victim, found him lying on a back bedroom floor, and called 911.
