Biloxi man found dead, car discovered in Back Bay

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Just blocks away from his home, a Biloxi man was found dead in the street Monday, and his vehicle was found in Back Bay.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove told WLOX News a Biloxi patrolman spotted the body of Robert Conroy, 47, on Bayview Avenue shortly before 3:30am. Hargrove said the patrolman realized the man was not the victim of a hit and run, and that he had been thrown from his vehicle.

Hargrove said Conroy appeared to be heading west on Bayview Avenue when he failed to make the curve, and he was thrown from the vehicle before it crashed into the Bay.
