From the desk of Bates County Coroner Greg Mullinax

On Thursday, December 3, 2020 just before 9am I was called to a residence in Rich Hill where a person had died in their home. 

While in progress on this call I was advised of a death at the Bates County Memorial Hospital Emergency Room. Upon clearing from Rich Hill, I continued to the ER and began that case.

Both deaths are natural in origin and are are not related; one will be Covid-related.

Thoughts and prayers to the family members and friends grieving a loss.
