Tabasco CEO dies of apparent heart attack

Good Evening,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for Nightcast.

Wildlife and Fisheries launches an investigation after a deer turns up dead near the new casino construction site. KPLC's Olivia Vidal has more on this story that has sparked a lot of comments on Facebook since the picture of the deer was first posted.

Plus, State Police Troop I is working a three vehicle accident near Basile that sent one person to the hospital.

And the CEO of Tabasco, Paul McIlhenny, died of an apparent heart attack. He was 68 years old.

Also two stories you have to see to believe… the first, two bob cats are captured on video fighting in a north Texas neighborhood. The second, a dog trapped on the icy waters of Lake Michigan is rescued.

And hope you enjoyed this nice Saturday. At Six, Meteorologist Cedric Haynes says changes are on the way. He'll have the latest on the forecast.

We'll see you tonight at ten. Until then we're always online at kplctv.com.
