HARRISON COUNTY, Miss. (WLOX) - Harrison County Deputy Coroner Brian Switzer confirmed a body was found off I-10 near the Delisle exit.

A grass cutting crew with the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) discovered the body Tuesday afternoon. Switzer said there wasn’t anything to indicate foul play.
