LEE COUNTY, MS (WLOX/WMC) - Three people, one of whom is a child, were found dead in Lee County, Mississippi.

According to our news partner, WTVA, the three people were discovered by a family member at a home on County Road 49 about 12 miles north of Tupelo.

The man who found the two adults and the child dead was a Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks conservation officer.

He went by the home to check on a family member around 8 a.m. when he made the discovery.

"We do believe these three individuals live here," said Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson. "It's very unclear at this point what we'll be able to release or what happened."
