Jury convicts Cotton
Seventeen years after losing their mother in a long unsolved homicide, the family of Fannie Burks got closure. Joe Cotton of Tunica was convicted of Burk’s murder in Circuit Court in Tunica County on Wednesday, April 11, after a two day trial.
In a press conference on May 13, 2009, Sheriff K.C Hamp announced a break in Burks’ murder, which had been deemed a cold case. Burks was discovered by a relative at her home in Cottonland Village on April 9, 1995. She had sustained multiple gun shot wounds. At the time, no apparent motive was determined, and no arrests were made.
