The family and community are mourning the sudden death of Newton County Sheriff Glenn Wheeler’s wife, Stacey. According to the Arkansas Sheriff’s Association, 46-year-old Stacey Wheeler was discovered dead Friday afternoon at the couple’s residence.
The Wheelers were reportedly planning to travel out of the area for the weekend. Stacey Wheeler had reportedly packed the couple’s vehicle, waiting on her husband to arrive when she collapsed.
There were no signs of physical trauma, and Stacey Wheeler’s death is believed to be of natural causes. However, due to her age, her body is being sent to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory in Little Rock.
