PIKE COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Pike County Sheriff's Department investigators are waiting on test results from the State Medical Examiner's officer to determine how a 45-year-old Summit resident died.

Meanwhile, three people who were reportedly inside the victim's house in Summit at the time of his death, including his son, have been arrested on various charges.

Deputies responded to a disturbance call at Curtis Dunaway's house on Ward Drive in Summit sometime before midnight on Oct. 21.

Authorities say Dunaway was found dead and unclothed inside the house, but they are not releasing details about his injuries.

A photo shows broken glass and blood stains on a window of the house.

Pike County Chief Deputy Steve Rushing said Thursday the state crime lab was called in to collect evidence.

Thirty-four-year-old Lisa Gail McClain, who was inside the home at the time of the disturbance, was arrested and charged with felony child neglect of her 16-year-old son.

The 16-year-old son was also arrested at the scene and faces charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Curtis Dunaway's 19-year-old son, Cody Glenn Dunaway, was also at the home. He has been arrested and charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
