New evidence has arrived in the case of Ole Miss student Jimmie “Jay” Lee who went missing in early July.
Murder suspect Sheldon Timothy Herrington Jr. allegedly searched “how long it takes to strangle someone” on the internet just shortly after Lee was on his way to his apartment. He also made searches about traveling internationally which was all revealed during a search warrant of Herrington’s phone.
On Tuesday, Judge Grady F. Tollison III rejected a request to set a bond for Herrington who is currently in jail for the murder of Lee.
Jimmie Lee’s body has yet to be found after authorities have been searching for over a month but cadaver dogs detected a scent of decomposition in Herrington’s home. After being questioned by police, Herrington admitted to having a relationship with Lee and bodily fluids were found on blankets inside his truck.
Herrington is currently being held in the Lafayette County Detention Center.
Lafayette County CrimeStoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that would lead to Lee being found on top of Lee’s family who is offering $5,000.See a typo? Report it here.
