PONTOTOC – Three people remained in the Pontotoc County jail Saturday in connection with a Friday homicide.
Pontotoc County Sheriff Neal Davis said the three people, who have not been charged, were picked up in connection with the murder of an unidentified person near a home in the Troy community.
The name of the deceased is not being released due to difficulty identifying the body and notifying next of kin, according to Davis.
Davis said signs of trauma were visible on the body, but did not want to go into specifics on those injuries.
More people are expected to be questioned on the case, he said.
A tip led to the discovery of the body, according to Davis.
