Authorities in Mississippi and Tennessee released more details Friday afternoon in the continuing investigation of the death of a Tennessee woman.
The body of Donna Hill, 50, of Ramer, Tenn., was found Sunday floating in the Tuscumbia River in Alcorn County.
The autopsy report is not back from Jackson, Miss., and officials say that report will help them determine the cause of the death and more about Hill’s death. It has not been determined if Hill died in Mississippi or Tennessee.
No one has been charged in connection with Hill’s death.
Authorities have been questioning Aaron Hastings, 30, of Corinth about his knowledge of Hill. He was charged Friday with burglary of a dwelling. His bond was set at $150,000 and he remains in jail, according to the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department.
Tennessee authorities said a second person is in custody after the investigation. Amanda Ervin Wilbanks, 32, of Ramer, Tenn. , has been charged with theft of property, according to McNairy County Sheriff Ricky Roten. Wilbanks was found in the rental car late Monday that Hill had been driving when she disappeared.
Authorities said the investigation is continuing.
