Human remains found on lawn of home

PURVIS, MS (WDAM) - Lamar County authorities are trying to determine if some human bones found in the front yard of a home are those of a man reported missing in October. A homeonwer on Cooper Road near Purvis notified authorities this morning after making the gruesome discovery.

Authorities speculate that animals may have drug the bones into the yard. Deputies are now searching a wooded area near the home and believe they have found some clothing near a creek that could belong to the victim.

7 On Your Side ran a Crimestoppers report late last year about a man named Kevin Broome who was last seen in the vicinity of Cooper Road and Johnson Circle.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the identity of the victim.
