Now investigators are working to determine if this is linked to the discovery of a human head found on Deer Park Street in Jackson, Saturday morning.

According to Newser, the severed head of a young black man was found on the front steps of a MS home.

Police Chief Lee Vance said they received a call from a resident around 3 p.m. saying she had discovered human remains in an open field on Green Avenue near Grand Avenue.

Officials say the head was severed from the body, at the neck.

"We can't say right now that one belongs to the other", said JPD Chief Lee Vance.

Cmdr. Tyree Jones says the body part was found Saturday shortly after 9 a.m. Authorities are awaiting Coroner and Medical Examiner's ruling.

Anyone with information, is asked to contact the Jackson Police Department at 601-960-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS.
