RICHLAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Richland Police have identified the body of a 48-year-old man found Monday afternoon in a field. Police Chief Russel James says the man is Jeffrey W. Roy of 260 Lowe Circle, in Richland.

Chief James believes his death was accidental and was caused by an overdose of "huffing" an aerosol based paint. But the chief is awaiting autopsy results to confirm that.

Roy had been missing since Thursday of last week.

He was found around 1:45 PM Monday afternoon. Officers went to investigate after receiving a call about buzzards flying over a field next to the Walmart.
