Authorities Investigating Double Homicide

By:  Ashley Harding

A murderer is on the loose in Mississippi.

Another person has been shot and killed just like a Nebraska man last week.

A 48–year–old woman was found lying near her car on a highway early Friday morning.

She was shot just 80 miles from where 74–year–old Thomas Schlender of Raymond was killed earlier in the week.

The sheriff of Tate county, Mississippi has confirmed the two shootings are related.

“the concern is that, someone may be posing as a law enforcement officer and that's how these vehicles wound up on the shoulder of the road.”

So far, no suspects.  The sheriff's office is warning drivers there to be extra careful.

In the meantime, Thomas Schlender's family is preparing for his funeral later this week.
