Four month old death ruled homicide

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Police investigate the death of an elderly Jackson woman as a homicide. 

Four months ago, the lifeless body of 83-year-old Earlease Dixon was found in her Humphries Street home. 

The case had been listed as a death pending after an inconclusive autopsy. 

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart now says lab results from that autopsy, returned on September 16th, show Dixon is a murder victim. 

Jackson police have made no arrests, but detectives are following leads.
