Skeletal remains found near West Marion Avenue.

Skeletal remains found off West Marion Avenue in Crystal Springs last week have been sent to the Mississippi Crime Lab for identification and cause of death. Tentative identification pending confirmation is that of Wesley Gates, possibly of Bessemer, Alabama, who had worked at a county industry and was a resident at a Raymond half-way house. Last known contact with Gates was around August 10, which corresponds to the level of decomposition. Crystal Springs Police Chief Chris Palmer asks that anyone having information in the case contact his department.
