UPDATE: Adams Street death under investigation

By NEMS Daily Journal

A death on Adams Street is under investigation.

The Tupelo Police Department arrived at the house around 11 a.m. and found a white male body inside. They were responding to a welfare call.

Lee County Coroner Caroline Gillentine-Green said the name of the man who was found dead in his home on Adam Street is not being released at this time.

She said the man had some prior medical conditions so the death could have been natural causes, but because blood was at the scene a full investigation is being done. An autopsy will be done Thursday.
