It may be part of his job to predict when a storm is on its way, but he never saw this one coming.

Police in Arkansas said Tuesday that they are investigating the death of a man found in an unfilled hot tub with a sleeping TV weatherman.

Maumelle police officers were called to the home of Christopher Barbour Monday morning where they found the body in the hot tub.

Mr Barbour, told cops that the dead man and meteorologist Brett Cummins of Little Rock station KARK, were guests at his home Sunday night for Labor Day weekend party.

Police were told that the trio was drinking and snorting drugs.

Mr Barbour said that he awoke the next morning to Cummins’ loud snoring, and found the weatherman in his hot tub with the nude body of Dexter Williams lying next to him.

Williams’ face was discoloured and he had with a chain around his neck – described by police as a ‘dog collar.’

There were also traces of blood in the hot tub, police said.

Upon awakening, Mr Cummins became ill and vomited on the carpet. He later left the home, but returned to give his statement to police, which was not released.

Maumelle police Lt Jim Hansard said investigators haven’t ruled out foul play in Williams’ death.

The 24-year-old’s Facebook page lists partying among his interests.

Lt Hansard told MailOnline that an autopsy has being conducted on Williams’ body, the results of which are pending.

According to a report from Maumelle police, the Mr Barbour said he invited Mr Cummins to his home Sunday evening.

At some point, they got into a hot tub and continued drinking, according to the police report.

Police are working with local prosecutor JaNan Davis to determine what charges, if any, might be filed.

Davis said any charges in the case hinge on the results of the autopsy.

Cummins did not respond to a phone message left Tuesday.

Mike Vaughn, the general manager for KARK, said Cummins reported to work Monday, but never went on the air.

He said the station received the report about Williams’ death and was working to figure out what happened, but he declined to comment further.

During a Tuesday news broadcast, KARK-TV anchor Bob Clausen said: ‘Our meteorologist Brett Cummins was at the home at the time of the death and we felt we should share this with you our viewers.

‘Brett will not be on the air while he is mourning the loss of his friend. Our thoughts naturally are with Brett and of course with the family and friends of Dexter Williams.’

    The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life. Sad to say but this is the harvest of the seeds sown by the individuals. i cannot believe any otherwise that a warning had come to all involved in this tragedy long before now. May this serve as a warning and lesson for the world to see the need for quick repentance, and seek the face of the living God who alone can save and deliver them.
