NOXUBEE COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) - A longtime Noxubee County supervisor has died. Coroner R.L. Calhoun says William Oliver passed away early Sunday morning.

Oliver, who represented District 2, had reportedly battled kidney disease for several years.

Earlier this year he announced that he would not be seeking re-election.

Oliver was the first African-American to be elected by fellow supervisors to serve as president of the board.
