Authorities say a mayoral candidate in the Mississippi Delta has been found dead and the case is being investigated as a homicide.
Coahoma County Coroner Scotty Meredith says the body of 34-year-old Marco McMillian was found on the Mississippi River levee Wednesday about 10 a.m.
McMillian was running for mayor of Clarksdale.
Meredith says the body was sent to Jackson for an autopsy and declined to provide further details.
Authorities had been looking for McMillian since another man crashed his car into another vehicle Tuesday.
