HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Harrison County Sheriff's deputies want to question two people in connection with a suspicious death at hotel Sunday afternoon.

Deputies say a housekeeper discovered the body of 51-year-old Thomas Aaton Corbin in a hotel room around noon. Authorities say Corbin's death is suspicious and an autopsy will determine the exact cause of death.

Hotel surveillance cameras show Corbin had been with two people at the hotel. One person is a white man in his late 20s to early 30s. He is wearing knee-length, camouflage shorts, a blue shirt and black boots.

The other person is a woman about four feet tall. She has cropped hair and is wearing a gray tank top and cropped pants. Both people are carrying backpacks with bedrolls.

Deputies say they are looking for Corbin's pickup truck, a gray Ford F-150 King Cab with Jackson County tag JJ2 928.

Anyone with information is asked to call (228) 897-1507
