OKOLONA, Miss. (WTVA) -- A welfare check on an Okolona man led to a horrifying discovery.
Chickasaw County coroner Michael Fowler said family members found their loved one deceased inside his Jefferson Street home.
Fowler said they discovered him around lunchtime on Saturday.
He is now hoping an autopsy will shed light on how the man in his mid-thirties died.
The coroner will send the body to the crime lab in Pearl for an autopsy.
