LUXORA, AR - Mississippi County authorities are still awaiting word from the state Crime Lab on the identity of a body that was found last month in the Buckeye community, near Leachville.

On September 27, the badly decomposed remains of a human body were found by state highway maintenance workers while mowing alongside Highway 110.  The body was immediately sent to the state crime lab in hopes that the remains could be identified, as well as a cause of death could be determined, but so far, those results have not been released.

Meanwhile, Mississippi County authorities are also awaiting autopsy results from the state medical examiner on the body of an inmate found dead in his cell in the Mississippi County Detention Center on October 1.

The inmate was identified as 19-year-old Marvin Kinney.
