CRYSTAL SPRINGS, Miss.—A man riding a bicycle in the commuting hours around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday morning was found in Crystal springs.
“There is no damage to the bicycle and no apparent injury to the victim himself,” said Crystal Springs Police Chief Cairl Robinson.
Robinson said earlier reports of a hit and run are incorrect and their department isn’t pursuing the investigation from that standpoint.
“The evidence doesn’t lead us to a hit and run.”
Now the CSPD has to wait for some answers.
“The body is indeed being sent to Jackson for an autopsy,” said Robinson. “I don’t know what the timeframe will be to get some answers.”
The victim is identified as Mark Thornton who is around “around 50-years-old” according to Robinson’s estimation. He said he didn’t have an exact age.
