Biloxi Fire Victim Died From Stab Wound

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Authorities say the fire that burned Michelle Craite's Biloxi home Tuesday may have been set to cover up her murder. That determination came after an autopsy revealed Craite died from a stab wound to her chest.

Biloxi investigators have been at the victim's north Biloxi home all day, looking for new clues that could lead them to her killer.

Craite's house burned Monday morning. Her body was found in the master bedroom.

Police are looking for a man who lived at the house. But so far, he hasn't been located.
