Check found miles away after Lamar Co. Tornado

JONES COUNTY, MS -

A check was found more than 50 miles from home.

Ruby Pruitt of Jones County was in her yard when she found  a check for $41.33 written out by Mary Nell Miller.

It turns out the check belongs to the wife of the man who was killed in his mobile home during last week’s Lamar County Tornado.  

Harris Dale Purvis was killed after an EF2 tornado blew through his mobile home in Baxterville.

Last week, his wife’s high school diploma was found 20 miles away in Hattiesburg.
