JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Jackson Police are investigating after human remains are found at a home on Greenwood Avenue.
Jackson Police say a new homeowner was cleaning the home when the body was found in a tarp. The body was too decomposed to be identified and detectives say it appears there is some head trauma.
Charlene Meza who lives two doors down says she was shocked to hear the news.
“It makes me worried because I have a little girl,” explained Meza. “I leave home earlier in the morning and this makes me think of carrying protection.”
Stanley Smith is the pastor of Crossroads Baptist Church which is near the home. He says trouble is no stranger to the area, but he isn’t scared.
“I trust in God and understand that these things are going to happen, but I also know no weapon form against me shall prosper,” explained Smith.
Police are calling this a suspicious death investigation; the investigation is ongoing.
