Whoa: Man's Severed Head Found On Porch, Burned Body Down The Street
This had to be something deeply personal.
Jackson, MS police were shocked when they got a call about a severed head being found on the front porch of a local house.
After they began that investigation, they found a burned body less than a mile from where they found the head.
Residents told CNN affiliate WLBT that the body was found by a group of children in a wooded area.
Jackson police are waiting for the coroner and medical examiner to determine whether the head and body belong to the same person.
"Due to the type of crime and the proximity of the body parts, we can assume perhaps this is the remains that were attached to the head," Jackson Police Chief Lee Vance said.
Police have not determined the motive in the case and would not say whether the killing is gang-related."Obviously, rage was an ingredient, perhaps some type of message sending," Vance said. -(CNN)
The head has since been identified as 30 year old Jerome Jackson.
