MARSHALL COUNTY, Miss. — Months after the gruesome discovery of a decomposing body in Marshall County, Mississippi, authorities say the victim was a missing Byhalia man.

Back in November, deputies found the man’s body in a wooded area along Highway 72 near Cayce Road. They say the man had a bag tied over his head.

Wednesday morning, the sheriff’s office identified the victim as Kenneth Hadden of Byhalia, who disappeared back in September, according to family members.
