FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Forrest County authorities are conducting a homicide investigation in the Carnes Community.

Deputies received the call just before 10:45 a.m. in reference to a woman being held against her will and possibly raped, according to Forrest County Sheriff's Department Investigator Nick Calico.

"The woman said her boyfriend was missing and believed that something happened to him," said Calico.  "She fled from that residence from the suspect."

Calico added that after that deputies responded to a residence in the 1100 block of Carnes Road.

"When deputies arrived at the scene where the incident took place, in the 1100 block of Carnes Road, deputies observed a deceased white male in the yard," said Calico.

According to Forrest County Deputy Coroner Lisa Klem, the male victim died from what appears to be at least one gunshot wound.

"The body will be sent to the State Crime Lab in Jackson for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death," said Forrest County Deputy Coroner Lisa Klem.  "The name of the victim is being withheld at this time pending notification of next of kin."

Around 2 p.m. Calico stated that the alleged suspect was taken into custody, and that the suspect apparently arrived at the scene.

The name of the suspect is being withheld at this time pending the ongoing investigation.

Hattiesburg Police Department Crime Scene Unit was also called to the scene to assist in the investigation.

If you have any information regarding the case, contact the Forrest County Sheriff's Department at 601-544-7800 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 601-582-STOP.
