A teen reported missing over the weekend was found alive Wednesday evening and a man's body was found inside a nearby house.
Canton Police responded to 330 Martin Luther King Drive where a passerby reported a partially clothed girl on the street. The 16 year old was reported missing Saturday to the Madison County Sheriff's Dept.
Canton Police Chief Ortha Brown says there are now obvious signs of how the man died. He's been identified as James Blackman.
Residents say the house was vacant.
Chief Brown adds that the 16 year old's mother arrived at the scene and went with her to UMMC.
The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is also on scene.
