Ellisville Police look to a private company to help solve murder

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Authorities in Ellisville are now looking to a private company to help solve the murder of Robert Seymour.

Seymour's body was found early this year in a shed behind his house on DuVall Street in Ellisville.

Authorities said he was killed by blunt force trauma to his head. The autopsy report revealed that multiple weapons were used to kill the 40 year-old.

Authorities are now sending some of the evidence collected at the scene to a private lab in Jackson.  They hope this will help further the investigation.
