Body Found In Crystal Springs

Crystal Springs, MS -

There are questions about what happened to a man whose body was found on the side of a Crystal Springs road this morning.

Mark Thornton, 58, was discovered lying on Bennett Street around 6AM this morning. He was found lying next to his bike.

Police aren't sure how long Thornton had been there before he was found, and they are not sure if this was a case of a hit and run or if something else happened that led to his death.

The coroner says an autopsy will help determine his cause of death. Thornton's ex-wife says that he lived at a nearby trailer park and rode his bike every morning.
