Man found dead in freezer identified
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell says 65-year-old Jerry Floyd Kirkendall was found in the freezer that was unplugged inside of a Latimer home.
On Monday, the home owner in the Virginia City community found Kirkendall inside and called authorities. Sheriff Ezell says they are now looking for 40-year-old Thomas Elliot Stafford who they believe killed Kirkendall. They were believed to be roommates at the time.
Investigators believe Stafford took the deceased man’s 2001 gold Cadillac which is still missing. U.S Marshals are helping Jackson County investigators locate Stafford.
