Foul play eyed in woman's death
FORT SMITH, Ark. — Investigators suspect foul play in the death of a woman found on her living room floor after she spent most of the day at a casino in nearby Pocola. Police say the husband of Sakounswk Vilayhong, 50, found his wife Thursday afternoon when he returned home from work. Authorities say they think Vilayhong left the casino shortly before 2 p.m. Thursday. Police say her husband found her about two hours later. Anyone with information is asked to call Fort Smith police.
