Marion Co. Sheriff's Office says murder case still open

MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - The Marion County Sheriff's Office says a nearly month old murder case is still open.

Family and friends of Kenrodrick Jefferson told News 7 that the case of Jefferson's murder may have been closed.

Investigators told WDAM that is not the case. They said there are several witnesses who have not come forward to tell what happened.

"We know for sure that there are some witnesses in the community that saw everything go down that are not involved with either party," said chief investigator Scott McKinney. They live there and they are hesitant at this point to come forward and we'd really like to get their side of what happened as a non-biased party."

Detective McKinney says the case will be presented to a grand jury.
