Tunica woman found murdered in apartment

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) Tunica County investigators were combing the Clayton Meadows apartments today after discovering the body of 46-year-old Rosemary Jones.

Someone called the Sheriff's Office and asked them to check on Jones.

When deputies arrived, they determined Jones had been murdered inside her apartment.

Neighbor George Anderson said he was heartbroken.

"I mean I never thought in a million years that would happen," Anderson said.

The Tunica County Sheriff's department is in the preliminary stages of its investigation, sheriff K.C. Hamp said.

One person of interest, who lived in the same apartment complex as Jones, is currently in custody.

Jones' body has been sent to Jackson for autopsy.

So far, no arrests have been made.
