Union Co. man dead after shooting
The Itawamba County Sheriff’s Department continued the investigation into the death of a Union County man, whose body was found in the Evergreen Community Wednesday afternoon.
Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson said that Stephen Bullwinkle, 33, of Union County, was found dead at 12:45 p.m. Wednesday on New Chapel Road.
According to Dickinson, early indications were that Bullwinkel died as the result of a single gunshot wound to the chest. Investigators were able to identify Bullwinkel because they found his car nearby.
Bullwinkel was also the suspect in a home invasion that occurred early Wednesday morning in Tippah County.
Dickinson said that Bullwinkel allegedly held his former wife and another person hostage at her home. He then allegedly left the scene with her credit card and used it to make purchases in Blue Mountain and Tupelo.
Dickinson said that a crime scene unit and deputies with the Itawamba County sheriff’s department were on the scene at New Chapel Road to shed some light on the circumstances that led to Bullwinkel’s death.
His body will be sent to Jackson for an autopsy, Dickinson said.
