Body Found at Mobile Home

Lauderdale County, Miss. A person was found dead at a Lauderdale County mobile home on Old Marion Road around 4:45 p.m. Thursday.

A forensics unit collected evidence. The case is being treated as a homicide.

Officials said someone visiting the man who lives there discovered the body and called 911 but didn't stay on the scene, because he said he had outstanding warrants.

Coroner Clayton Cobler said the body of a black male who appeared to be 30-35 years old might have been there 24-36 hours. An autopsy will be performed.

Anyone with information about the case may report it to Meridian police at 601-485-1893. 311, or Crimestoppers at 601-485-1860.
