On Sep. 1, barge operators found the body of an unidentified woman in the Mississippi River South of Natchez.
Last Thursday around noon, the remains were found roughly 15 miles south of the Natchez bridge.
Adams County Coroner James Lee was able to confirm the found remains were that of a female but the race or age was unable to be determined. The remains have been transported to the state crime lab so that a full autopsy can be performed.
The unidentified woman’s death is being investigated by the Adams County Sheriff’s Office.See a typo? Report it here.
