The entryway underwent a formal name change during ceremonies Monday morning.
McCormack, the popular DJ/jokester whose nickname "Bad Dog" was familiar to most FM-radio listeners in Memphis from his lengthy tenure as a member of the Rock 103 Wake-up Crew, had, with other members of the crew, long been a star fund-raiser for the Ronald McDonald House through the station's annual radiothon and other activities.
Ronald McDonald House serves as a home away from home for family members of children, stricken by cancer and other catastropic illness, who are undergoing treatment at the nearby St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. During his last years, Bad Dog himself was stricken by an ultimately fatal form of cancer but kept on broadcasting right up to the time of his death earlier this year.
He was an institution, and his sons agree. "But he should have been in an institution," joked Buck, in a quip which reflected his father's madcap style.
UPDATE: Numerous sources are now citing an Arkansas Department of Corrections spokesperson as saying the three convicted inmates in this case left the maximum security unit "with all their possessions."
WREG is reporting two of the three will be released tomorrow. Their source is reportedly the father of one of the victims. WMC is reporting all three convicted men are in custody of Craighead County deputies.
There is a lot of single-sourced reporting happening and a LOT of speculation on Twitter. My advice would be to wait and see what develops tomorrow.
The best local source for developments in my book is the Arkansas Times.
Also worth a look, if you're willing to pop for $15, is Mara Leveritt's site. Leveritt has covered the case since its beginnings and has written the definitive book on the subject.
