A Corinth family is waiting on results from the state crime lab after their missing relative’s vehicle was found burned in Lee County. The Lincoln Navigator with a DeSoto County license plate was found in a rural area of Verona. Corinth Alderman J.C. Hill was notified of the discovery Friday afternoon by the Lee County coroner. “Right now, all we know is some remains were in the truck, the truck was found, and the truck was burnt," said Hill. His son, Jay Hill Jr., 33, also known as “Mac,” had his last contact with family on Aug. 9. It is unusual for him not to keep in touch, J.C. Hill said. Phone records had shown the last contact with his cell phone occurred in Lee County. Hill lived in Tupelo but also spent time with family in Horn Lake in northwest Mississippi. He grew up in Corinth. J.C. Hill said he expects to learn the crime lab results identifying the person in the vehicle later this week. The Associated Press reported the vehicle was discovered by a farmer searching for a lost cow.

Animal lovers will get a chance to howl under the moon for a good cause. The Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter will host "A Night to Howl Under Moon" this week in downtown Corinth. The fundraiser event, set for 6 p.m. on Thursday, will be the first for the shelter’s new foundation which will raise funds to construct a new state-of-the-art-shelter. The block party style event, co-presented by Vicari Italian Gill and Cruise Street Market, will feature entertainment from local jazz group Blue Magnolia, heavy hors d’oeuvers and craft beer from Vicari and a wine tasting. A silent auction and wine pull will also take place. Tickets are $25 or $250 for a eight-person sponsorship table. Tickets can be purchased online at corinthalcornanimalshelter.com or at the door the night of the event. “This is our first big kickoff event for the foundation,” said Volunteer Director Charlotte Doehner. “This will be our first block party style event, as well, and we are looking forward to it.” The event will take place in the middle of Cruise Street between Vicari and Cruise Street Market. Cruise Street will be closed to traffic between Fillmore and Franklin streets beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday. Doehner said pre-event ticket and table sales have been brisk. “Those local people and businesses who purchase sponsorship tables are helping tremendously,” she said. Doehner said shelter staff will hand out limited edition, collectible plastic wrist bands featuring the shelter's name and paw prints to all event attendees. “We will also have event T-shirts and pint glasses featuring the shelter’s logo for sale,” said Doehner. The shelter’s current location on Proper Street is a pre-Civil War building with major structural issues. The organization hopes to raisie $1 million to construct a modern building that can be an asset for the community and is currently seeking a suitable location of 3 to 5 acres. They hope to break ground within three years. (For more information, visit corinthalcornanimalshelter.com or contact 662-284-5800 or 662-660-2076.)
