Autopsy Info Being Withheld in Long Beach Homicide Case

As of Wednesday, officials are not releasing the results of an autopsy in the homicide case of a Long Beach woman found dead in her home Tuesday morning.

Wednesday, Harrison County Deputy Coroner, Brian Switzer, tells News 25 police have asked the coroner’s office to withhold the results of the autopsy because police fear the information could hinder the ongoing investigation. Tuesday morning, 48 year old Kimberly Watts was found dead in her Long Beach home on the 200 block of Woodcrest Drive. According to family members, Watts was a nurse and a mother. Neighbors describe the area where Watts lives as quiet.

Barbara Lindsey, a neighbor, says, “Total, total shock, it just seems unreal for around here, it really does. We feel safe and in a way we don’t. We have an alarm system and we turned it on early last night just to be on the cautious side.”

Police remain tight lipped about the investigation. If you have any information, please contact the Long Beach Police Department or call Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
