A man who was found dead in the water near Roy Cumbest Bridge in Jackson County this week has been identified.

The body of Suttles was recovered around 1 p.m. Tuesday by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks near the Roy Cumbest Bridge off Wade/Vancleave Road.

According to the coroner, an autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death. Until then, the sheriff’s department is treating the case as foul play.

Detectives also found a boat near the body, but it’s unclear at this time who owns it.

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell reached out to the public Tuesday evening, requesting help in identifying the man and releasing information about the victim’s distinctive tattoos.

Investigators said he was wearing a white and blue t-shirt with a skull on it, and a blue, white, and gray swimsuit. He has a tattoo with the numbers “334” on his lower left arm, and a tattoo of a name on his right chest.

Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department at 228-769-3063.
