Update to Body Found in Mississppi County
By: CJ Cassidy
Police say autopsy results now confirm the victim is a Hispanic man believed to be in his 40's-50's who died of a single gunshot to the back of the head. Investigators don't know what led to the shooting just yet, but say it was similar to an "execution style killing". They also say after the victim was shot in the head, he was shot again in the side of the neck and in the groin area.
Investigators also believe the actual shooting did not take place there. "It looks like the body was just dumped there," Moore says.
Area residents like Ted Hutchason say the discovery's led to quite a bit of traffic on the usually quiet county road. "This happening close to home will probably make people stop and think about kids getting out at night make them stop and think," Hutchason says.
