Woman found dead at Moss Point truck stop

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - Moss Point police are investigating the death of a woman found inside a vehicle at a truck stop off Interstate 10.

Detective Kimberlee Snowden told WLOX News Now a worker at The Pilot truck stop on Highway 63 and I-10 saw the woman parked inside a 2017 Jeep Renegade Friday and checked on her. Snowden said the woman told the worker to "mind her own business."

When the Jeep was still in the parking lot Monday, the worker went to check on the woman again and discovered she was dead.

While the investigation is just beginning, Snowden said there are no signs of foul play. Investigators are reviewing surveillance video from the truck stop. The woman's body was sent to the state crime lab where an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.

Snowden said the deceased appears to be an African-American woman in her early to mid-30s. Her identity isn't being released to the public until her family can be notified.

If you have any information about this woman's death, you're asked to call the Moss Point Police Department at (228) 475-1711 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 787-5898.
