Long-time radio reporter Bill Page dies

Wednesday, June 7, 2006

A long-time regional radio reporter and voice of Kennett's KBOA Hometown News died early Tuesday, police said.

Bill Page, 39, of Kennett, was discovered dead Tuesday in the bedroom of his home at 400 W. Fifth St., Kennett, police noted.

Corky Cooksey of Lake City, Ark., reported Page's death at 2 a.m. Tuesday, police said. Kennett Police Department officer Al Smith arrived at the residence six minutes later, police added.

Dunklin County Sheriff's Department Deputy William Hill was the first officer on the scene, police noted. He told Kennett Police Fisher that Dunklin County Coroner Jack Adkins had been summoned and was en route to the home, police said.

Police said Page's death was because of natural causes.

However, Dunklin County Coroner Jack Adkins had not ruled Tuesday on the cause of Page's death, police said. A call placed by a Daily Dunklin Democrat reporter to Adkins Wednesday was not returned by press time.

"Although there was no evidence of foul play, the coroner said he must do research in regard to Page's medical history" before he rules on the cause of Page's death, police said.

Page's last assignment was as a broadcaster for Caruthersville's KCRV radio station.
