MALVERN, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say they are investigating the death of a man whose remains were found in a protected wildlife area in Hot Spring County as a homicide.

Hot Spring County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Woody Perry said Thursday that a 43-year-old man was found in the Jack Mountain Wildlife Management Area on Feb. 8.

Woody said that the man’s death appears to have been caused by a gunshot wound. He said that the death is being investigated as a homicide, but authorities have not ruled out the possibility that the injury was self-inflicted.

According to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, the wildlife area encompasses 18,274 acres near Bismarck.
