Bates County Coroner Reports a Death in Butler

Bates County Coroners Office

On Friday, May 7, 2021, at around 9:43 am I was called by Butler Police to a residence on East Fort Scott Street in Butler. A deceased person had been found in a residence following a wellbeing check. At this time, I believe family notifications are still occurring and for that reason, I will withhold the decedent’s name at present. There is no indication of foul play, and investigation, as to cause of death, is underway at this time. I will provide updates as available. Greg D. Mullinax, Bates County Coroner
