Two Mississippi men found themselves in a pickle after they realized the car he was driving had a dead body in the trunk. I guess that’s why the vehicle was getting crappy gas mileage.
According to Copiah County Sheriff Byron Swilley, a body was found inside of a vehicle in Copiah County. Swilley said a man drove the vehicle from Byram to Copiah County, about 30 miles, but realized that there was a body inside the vehicle’s trunk.
Coroner Ellis Stuart said two men found the car in Byram with a “free car” sign on it and the key inside. They drove the car to Copiah County and looked inside the trunk after arriving at a family member’s home.
I love the South and the people in it, but good lord, who thinks it’s a good idea to take a vehicle with a “Free Car” sign with the key inside without asking any questions?
The body has been identified as 34-year-old Anthony McCrills. Stuart said the body had been in there for several days and was found without clothes.
“He was identified through his tattoos and confirmed through his immediate family of his identity,” said Byram Police Chief David Errington. Errington said the victim’s vehicle was seen in Byram, Copiah County and Jackson over the last few days. Police have not yet determined where the original crime took place.
I’m legitimately surprised they didn’t notice the stench of death emanating from the trunk.
