Soliving A Cold Case: Cornes’ murder was top priority, Sheriff says
It was a humid summer day in July nearly 10 years ago when an employee of Tunica Grain Elevator made a grisly discovery. Just before 7 a.m., the Sheriff’s Department learned that the body of a woman was hanging between two grain bins. Her clothing, including her shoes, was strewn around the scene.
The victim was identified as 45 year old JoAnn Cornes of Tunica, the mother of four. Coroner Glenn Grent pronounced her dead at approximately 7:21 a.m on July 23, 2002. She had last been seen the previous evening by her common law husband, Henry Neely, who said she had no disputes or problems with anyone.
