Lawrence Reed, 22, identified as the person of interest in police custody in the murder of openly gay mayoral candidate Marco McMillian, whose body was found Wednesday in Coahoma County, Miss.
Marco McMillian’s body was found near the Mississippi River, between Sherard and Rena Lara. He had been missing since early Tuesday. He was discovered missing after an accident involving his SUV Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. near the Coahoma County-Tallahatchie County line.
Lawrence Reed, who was driving McMillian’s SUV, collided head-on with another vehicle. The mayoral candidate wasn’t in the vehicle at the time of the accident and that prompted a search for his whereabouts, the Clarion-Ledger reports.
