FARMINGTON — The Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department continues an investigation of the “suspicious” weekend death of an Alcorn County woman.

“The circumstances surrounding this death is suspicious,” Alcorn County Sheriff Ben Caldwell told the Daily Corinthian on Monday morning. “We need a ruling from the cause of death before we proceed with the investigation.”

The victim was identified as 44-year-old Melvania Brumfield, whose last known address was Highway 45, Rienzi.

The Alabama native was believed to have been living in a vehicle the past several weeks, said Caldwell.

The body will be sent for an autopsy.

The victim was found about noon Sunday in a mobile home on Alcorn County Road 182 in the Farmington area.

“Once we get the autopsy report back, we will know more about proceeding with the investigation,” said the sheriff.

I loved this young lady so much. She is the mother of my three grandsons. They are heartbroken. She was like a ray of sunshine - always a smile on her face. She had so much to live for. Hope the law gets to the bottom of this soon because our hearts are breaking.
