Dead woman's rental car found in Tenn.

CORINTH, Miss. (AP) -- Tennessee authorities have found the rental car of a Tennessee woman whose body was found in the Tuscumbia River in Alcorn County.

John Mehr, special agent in charge with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in Jackson, Tenn., tells the Jackson Sun that the 2009 Nissan Sentra rented by Donna Hill was found in the Ramer community. Hill lived in Ramer.

Alcorn County officials say the body of the 50-year-old Hill was found on Sunday in the river. Autopsy results are pending.

Mehr says law enforcement officials believe foul play was involved.

    A woman has obviously been murdered and this is all you've got to say about it? If you can't (won't) assign a reporter to the story couldn't a few phone calls to the police fill in some details. The Jackson Sun reported 2 days ago that "foul play" (murder to us non-media types) had been confirmed and that the police were looking for a person of interest. At least try to act like you're interested in the loss of someones life. This woman probably has a family and friends who will miss her greatly. Pretend you care.
