Description of Incident:
At approximately 7:13 a.m., dispatch received a 911 call reporting a dead body on the side of Hathorn Road, approximately 500 feet south of Creekmore Blvd.
The caller identified herself as Mae Jenkins, an employee of the University of Mississippi Physical Plant. Jenkins said the body was found by another employee, Tomas Robards, who was still at the scene.
Det. D. Anderson and I were on duty at the time and proceeded directly to the scene, notifying coroner's inspector Ricky Davis en route.
We arrived at the scene at 7:42 a.m., and found that Officer Watson had secured the area and detained the witness, Tomas Robards.
Watson reported that when he arrived on the scene, he found Robards sitting in his 1977 green Ford pickup truck. Watson secured Robards in the back seat of his patrol car, and then approached what Watson described as the body of a white male, approximately 18-25 years old.
After verifying that the victim did not appear to be breathing and had no pulse, Watson taped off the area and secured the scene with assistance from Deputy Nichols.
The victim was lying face up in a grassy traffic island created by Hathorn Road and a semicircular driveway. The victim's head was to the south, and both arms were extended on the ground above his head.
