Oklahoma man dead following task force arrest
A man arrested by the LeFlore County Drug Task Force in southeastern Oklahoma died in the county jail from unknown causes, the Fort Smith Times Record reported yesterday. Bobby Gene Willis was arrested last Wednesday in a task force raid on his home that allegedly turned up 70 lbs of marijuana. Jailers told the paper that Willis complained of a sore back but appeared to have no other medical problems. Autopsy results will take up to ten days. Willis' was the second death in the LeFlore county jail in the last eight years.
