FORT SMITH ó A member of the Sebastian County Mounted Patrol has been found dead on her property in Huntington.

Eppersonís son asked the sheriffís office to check on her after he learned she hadnít shown up for work. When deputies and Eppersonís son arrived at her residence about 4 p.m., the womanís horse was saddled and standing in the yard.
Investigator Anthony Sacco says her body was found about a quarter of a mile from the house. Sacco says it appeared Epperson had suffered injuries from an accident involving the horse.
Her body has been sent to the State Medical Examinerís Office for an autopsy.

Unfortunately not riding alone is not always an option for some of us, unless we just don't want to ride at all.
