Police continue to investigate the murder of a Yazoo City man whose body was discovered on Maynie Alley Monday night.
Jeffrey Williams, 32, of Yazoo City, was found dead in the middle of the road around 11 p.m. on Sept. 28.
“Dispatchers received a call in reference to a black male laying in the road, not responsive,” said Chief Jeff Curtis. “When officers arrived at the scene, they did find a male in the road. They immediately requested a detective unit and MedStat.”
Williams was pronounced dead at the scene.
“After speaking to several witnesses, we have found out that there was a physical altercation between Williams and another person.”
Williams’ body had chest wounds.
“We have not identified a weapon at this point,” Curtis said. “The wounds could either be gunshot or puncture wounds.”
No one has been charged yet, but police officers do have a person of interest in custody.
“We are questioning that person at the time, but no arrests have been made yet,” Curtis said. “We are also continuing to speak with witnesses.”
