Sheriff says two bodies discovered dumped on rural Mississippi road

A sheriff’s office in Mississippi is investigating what happened to two men who were found dead along a rural stretch of road over the weekend.

Tate County Sheriff Brad Lance told news outlets a driver discovered the two bodies early Sunday morning in a small community in the northwest part of the state, about 40 miles from Oxford.

Investigators say both men had multiple gunshot wounds. WHBQ-TV reports Lance said it appears the bodies were dumped there.

News outlets report deputies think the victims were in their early 20s.

Authorities haven’t identified the victims or any suspects.
