As of this morning, the murder of Ricky Saxton is still unsolved. It originally looked like it was going to be the most common person found to be the murderer which is someone familiar with the victim. In this case it was probably going to be someone related to the woman who called in a need for wrecker service. Now, it has been determined that his cell phone was last used on the eastern side of the county versus where the murder occurred which is more in the center of the county.
While this is a very serious matter, an interesting side note is that the Sheriff for the county is named Sheriff, too. Sheriff (Jake) Sheriff stated that the investigation has been taken over by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.
