Hotel Death Investigation Continues in Jackson County
Jackson County authorities are continuing their investigation into a homicide at a hotel over the weekend.
They are looking for a man wanted for questioning in regard to the stabbing death of a transgender woman at the Best Western in St. Martin.
Twenty-five year-old Dee Whigham’s body was found in a hotel room as law enforcement responded to a 9-1-1 call. Whigham, a registered nurse in Hattiesburg, was visiting South Mississippi with friends and co-workers for this weekend’s black rodeo in Biloxi.
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell described the crime scene as brutal and is asking anyone with information to come forward.
