Deputies Looking For Person Of Interest In Murder

Marshall County, Ms.

Marshall County Deputies are looking for a person of interest in a murder at Chewalla Lake last month.

Deputies think that man may know something about the murder of 20-year-old Samuel Smith.

“We know he man was in the area with Samuel prior to his death in Samuel’s vehicle and he took all of Samuel’s belongings in the truck.” said Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson.

The victim is from Arkansas and had apparently texted his sister that he was going to the lake to camp and fish.

Detectives believe Smith possibly picked up the man in Louisiana along the way, but it’s unclear if he knew him or not. They say he’s wearing Smith’s shirt in this video and has more of Smith’s belongings, including a rifle, a debit card and a billfold.

If you have any information, call Marshall County Sheriff’s Office at (662) 252-1311.
