Former deputy charged in cold case homicide
Nearly 15 years after family members discovered the lifeless body of their brother under a large oak tree on Gay Street, Tunica County Sheriff K.C. Hamp announced that a former law enforcement official has been implicated in his death.
At a press conference at the Tunica Museum on March 28, Hamp said Willie “Cat Daddy” Starks has been charged with the murder of James “JuMan” Carter of Tunica. Starks, the former chief deputy of the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department, is currently serving a 30 year sentence in the federal prison system on unrelated drug charges. His bond in the Carter case has been set at $1 million. He has also been charged with obstruction of justice.
