POINSETT COUNTY, AR – Police have arrested a woman in connection to the death of her one-month-old daughter who was found inside a clothes dryer.

Police were called to a mobile home Tuesday afternoon after the baby’s father found his daughter, Caseleigh, dead inside the dryer.

Both he and the baby’s mother, 25-year-old Tyra Neal, were arrested but charges against the baby’s father were later dropped.

Second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse charges were not dropped against Neal, however, and she is sitting in jail on a $1 million cash-only bond.

Family members say Neal has four remaining children.

No word on how the baby died, but the sheriff’s office said her body has been sent to the State Crime Lab for an autopsy.

No word on a motive, either. But I’m guessing a 25-year-old living in a trailer in the middle of nowhere five kids may have a little something to do with it.

Sheriff Kevin Molder said the immediate response of Arkansas State Police was the reason why they have been able to progress this case so quickly.

“They have been instrumental in moving us forward,” Molder said. “Our investigators have been working closely with them and that’s the reason we moved so quickly with it.”

He also added that the scene at the mobile home will be one that will stay with the responding officers.

“Any time an infant child is involved it’s very hard for law enforcement officers,” Molder said. “They go home at night and it’s not something they forget.”
