Body found in Waveland still not identified

Posted: Updated:

Waveland Police will spend the day after Christmas trying to identify a body found near the city's Walmart.  

Authorities say the remains were found Christmas Day in a field not far from the Walmart on Highway 90. Investigators believe the remains are those of a homeless person, but haven't confirmed the identity. Police have not determined a cause of death.

The case will be investigated as a homicide, which is standard procedure until an autopsy can determine the cause of death.
