Naramore is also a former Garland County deputy prosecutor.

The Hot Springs Police Department said it was conducting a criminal investigation.

It says the boy's death was likely due to 'excessive heat.'

A statement released on the family's behalf by a family friend Sunday night called the death a 'tragic accident.'

The local prosecutor has asked to recuse himself.
