LITTLE ROCK, AR – Little Rock Police say a paraplegic man who was “stomped” earlier in December died Sunday of natural causes.
Robert Hepp, 52, reported to police that he was severely stomped by Katie Forte on December 5th. Police say his death was ruled a “natural death” and that Hepp did not sustain any injuries that would have contributed to it.
Police say detectives will continue to investigate the case. The file will then be turned over to the prosecutor to determine if there is evidence of the crime of Battery to an individual who is defined as incompetent.
LRPD has not yet been able to talk with Forte about the incident.
