Police are investigating 2 separate crime scenes after the horrific finding of a severed head and a headless body nearby in Jackson. A few hours later, a headless burned body was discovered less than a mile away, according to Jones.
Jackson police are waiting for the coroner and medical examiner to determine whether the head and body belong to the same person.
Police have not determined the motive in the case and would not say whether the killing is gang-related.
The head was found Saturday morning on the front porch of a home. It appeared to have been cut off at the neck. It is believed that the body parts belong to a black male.
It is widely believed that the body parts belong to the same person considering the type of the crime.
Police authorities say that rage was an ingredient, perhaps some type of message sending to the rival gang,. The body was initially found by a group of children in a wooded area.
It is not yet disclosed by the police whether the near-by home owners recognized the head.
