NC woman found dead at Biloxi truck stop identified

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The woman who was found dead inside an SUV at a Biloxi truck stop has been identified. Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove identified the woman as 44-year-old Michelle Cancienne, of Murphy, NC.

Biloxi police spent much of Wednesday afternoon investigating the scene in the parking lot of Love's Truck Stop on Cedar Lake Road.

Cancienne's body was found inside a black Jeep with North Carolina plates. Hargrove said he believes the body had been there for more than a day.

Cancienne was last seen on July 30 in East Baton Rouge, LA. Authorities believe she was heading back to North Carolina at that time. She was reported missing to Louisiana authorities Aug. 6.

Hargrove said the autopsy revealed no signs of foul play. He is now waiting on the results of a pending toxicology report.
