Investigation Continues in Clay Death Case

CLAY COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) -- Meridian police detectives may have a suspect in the death of a man whose body was found dumped in Catalpa Creek in the Tibbee community in Clay County last week.

And Clay County Coroner Alvin Carter says the death of 28-year-old Alex Sims still is being treated as a homicide. Carter said he is not releasing information on the cause of death to "protect the integrity of the investigation."

Meridian authorities have been working with Clay County Sheriff's detectives since Sims' body was found July 18 by two fishermen. He'd last been seen in Meridian five days earlier.

Meridian detectives have been tracking his last known whereabouts and the people he was with. They fear a possible suspect may have left the area.
