Body found in freezer

TYLERTOWN — The body of a Jayess woman has been found in a freezer at her home.

Walthall County Coroner Shannon Hartzog tells the Brookhaven Daily Leader that the body of 52-year-old Darlene Berthelot was found Thursday.

An autopsy has been ordered.

Sheriff Duane Dillon says lawmen were questioning the woman’s live-in boyfriend. No charges had been filed early Friday. The boyfriend was being held in the county jail.

Dillon says the woman’s family called his office after they had not heard from her since the weekend. He says deputies went to her Jayess home and found her body.

Dillon says the investigation was continuing.
