Since some Blues-L folks have stayed in Tunica while attending the King
Biscuit Blues Festival, I thought that this would be of interest.

The article mentions that Tunica does not have a full hospital but it now has
a large clinic that is staffed with prenatal care, STD testing and licensed
MDs and RNs on staff. They never had anything close to this before the
casinos came to town.

Also, it refers to a murder in an elevator as being on the Tunica crime
docket. But that was an outside resident who followed another outside
resident from the casino to rob him of his winnings.
