UPDATE: Corinth man wanted for questioning in woman's death

CORINTH — Authorities want to interview a Corinth man to find out what he might know about a Tennessee woman whose body was found Sunday in the Tuscumbia River in Alcorn County.

According to the Jackson (Tenn.) Sun, Aaron Hastings, 30, of Burns Road was being sought for questioning in the death of Donna Hill, a 50-year-old woman from Ramer, Tenn.

“We’re looking for Mr. Hastings to interview him about information that he may have concerning Ms. Hill,” John Mehr, special agent in charge with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in Jackson, Tenn., told the Sun.

Hastings is described as about 6 feet tall, weighing 300 pounds. He is bald.

Mehr would not confirm earlier reports that Hastings already was in custody.

Hill’s body was discovered Sunday, and on Tuesday the McNairy County (Tenn.) Sheriff’s Department found a car that she had rented.

The 2009 Nissan Sentra was found in the Ramer community.

An autopsy is still pending on Hill. Law enforcement officials believe foul play was involved.

Anyone with information should call the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department at (662) 286-5521, the McNairy County Sheriff’s Department at (731) 645-3406 or the the TBI at (800) TBI-FIND.
