New Albany, MS- The dead body of 37-year-old Stephanie Killough was found in a vehicle in a driveway in the West Union Enterprise community early Monday, Sept. 10. It is believed the deceased is from the Union County area.
A neighbor discovered the body and notified the office of Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards about 5 a.m. The vehicle was in a driveway at 1507 Highway 30, a short distance southeast of the intersection of Highway 30 and CR 515 at 1507 Highway 30. The location is near Enterprise Baptist Church, three or four tenths of a mile east of West Union Grocery, and is about six miles south/southwest of Myrtle.
Law enforcement officials suspect the death may not have been from natural causes, and Union County Coroner Pam Bowman will send Killough’s body to the state medical examiner in Jackson for an autopsy. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation (MBI) is participating in the investigation.
Sheriff Edwards said the body had no visible wounds. “We are not sure of the cause of death, but it is suspicious,” he said.
