JACKSON COUNTY, Miss. (WLOX) - A December murder investigation in Moss Point is now a triple homicide after a third victim died.

Lindsay Foster Herr, 37, died at a Mobile hospital on Jan. 5 as a result of the Dec. 22 crime at a house on Old Slag Road, said Jackson County Coroner Bruce Lynd.

Herr was a resident of Hurley who grew up in Pascagoula, according to her obituary. According to one of Herr’s family members, she never regained consciousness after the attack.

Two other victims - 32-year-old George Kirkland and 19-year-old Asia Norman - also died in the house on Dec. 22. Police have not said how the victims were killed, only noting that the victims were found dead of “obvious trauma.”

Relatives of Kirkland said he lived at the home on Old Slag Road and he and Norman were dating. It’s unclear why Herr was at the house or how she knew the other two victims.

Police Chief Brandon Ashley previously said the house was well known to authorities for criminal activity ranging from drugs to larceny.

This home on Old Slag Road was the scene of a violent triple murder on Dec. 22, 2019. Police say it's a known drug house.

Nearly a month after the violent scene, no one has been arrested or charged with the crimes. Citing the investigation, Chief Ashley has released few details about the homicide.

“We are at a critical point in our investigation and are not releasing any more information at this time,"he told WLOX on Wednesday when asked for confirmation about Herr’s death.

The chief previously told WLOX this was not a random act of violence and the victims were targeted for reasons that are unknown. However, Chief Ashley has stated that he does not have any reason to believe the public is in any danger.
