A body found burned near our local Wal Mart

Our local News station's story about a body found. This story is so watered down! The news makes me so mad at times!
My sister in law was there when the body was discovered and I have talked with several employees from Wal Mart. They say that the man was burned beyond recognition. They said that a white truck dropped him off at 7 AM, he went in to Wal Mart and bought something, then walked into the woods. Some of the employees saw the fire and when the management team went to put the fire out, they found this body. They have all this on video, but don't know who was in the truck and if the death was suicide, accidental, or a murder. It is so sad about this man and I guess they will find out who he is when they do the autopsy.
One sad thing is that everytime our little town has something to put it on the map or show focus on it, it is always negative.

Up Date: They did find out the man was from Bruce, MS.

That is a very sad thing to happen. Will you keep us updated.

Hope you don't mind me tagging you- don't feel obliged to accept!

That is sad, and hopefully they will find out what they need to, to answer the questions. In November a guy was found in a dumpster burnt beyond recognition. They determined eventually, he started the fire himself likely to keep warm. It is sad when things happen. Yesterday we read of a house invasion by 'friends of a teen living in the home when the family was away. They destroyed much in the house, returned the next day and put the cat in the microwave and turned it on. The neighbour checking on the place found the mess the next morning. Now that is just sick. Four teens have been charged. What possesses such degradation and disgusting behaviour is so beyond me. I just try not to think to hard on it.

That's so sad, and Dawn, that's completely sick. Here, a student I used to teach killed a "man" (early 20's) over a fender bender. It's bothered me for months, I've considered blogging about it, but I'm not sure what to say yet. It's so difficult when tragedy touches close.

How sad. I hope they get to the bottom of what happened.
