Search for Homicide Victim in Suqualena

Lauderdale County, Miss.

Investigators are searching the Suqualena area for a man believed to have been murdered in Scott County in February 2013. The victim may have been dumped off Cow Creek Road.

Officials say the suspect is now in custody.

At the time the body of the 34-year-old victim was dumped, the suspect was driving a 1997 gold 4-door Mitsubishi Diamante with a Scott County tag.

The vehicle got stuck and passersby helped the suspect pull his vehicle to a paved road, not realizing what he had done.

The Scott County Sheriff's Department would like to talk with the driver and passengers who helped. Their vehicle was a large, red truck.

Investigators say the 27-year-old black male suspect would be easy to remember because he has a
deformed left arm and left leg and a limp.

Anyone who has information about this incident is asked to call 601-469-1511.
