RANKIN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) –

A woman was found murdered inside her Rankin county home Tuesday, launching an investigation joined by state and county authorities.


Law enforcement is tight lipped about the details but does confirm they are in the middle of a homicide investigation.


Rankin County authorities, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations and the Mississippi Crime Lab spent most of the day combing for evidence in a homicide investigation at 1436 Star Road.

Sheriff Ronnie Pennington would not release the identity of the deceased white female found around noon inside the gray mobile home.

But investigators did indicate her body was discovered near the doorway.

“Her father called or a family member called 911 to report that his daughter was injured. There’s no suspect in custody, but we’re following up several leads. Again every investigator we have in the sheriff’s office is out working on this case right now,” said Rankin County Undersheriff Bryan Bailey.

WLBT has been told that the victim is 36 year old Leslie Olivia Sheppard Doame.

Her father, Johnny Sheppard, reportedly found her body inside his home suffering from a gunshot wound.

Authorities would not confirm any of this information.

Sheppard’s Facebook page stated that she worked at AAA Cooper Transportation in Richland as an operations clerk.

We are told she worked nights and slept during the day and could have been the victim of a robbery.

Rankin County District Attorney Michael Guest said he was called to the crime scene by the sheriff. 

“There was nothing that I noticed that would lead me to believe there was forced entry. I saw no broken windows nothing that as involving any doors being pried open, kicked open, forced open, something of that nature,” said Guest.

According to the Facebook page, Sheppard moved back home 10 years ago, had been married twice and had no children.

“I saw a lot of cars here about noon time today,” said neighbor Frank Scott.

The 90 year old lives about a half mile away but did not know Sheppard or her family.

He stopped to find out why so many law enforcement vehicles were parked at the home.

“It’s a very safe area, and I’ve never heard of any robberies or anything of that nature here,” said Scott.

Family and friends gathered at the home throughout the day consoling one another but made no comment about the murder investigation.

(SC) Man kills wife, ex wife, wife sister and mother then kills self

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A South Carolina man suspected of killing four people, including his wife and ex-wife, killed himself Sunday after leading police on a chase back to the scene of three of the slayings, authorities said.

Authorities: Man kills 4 in SC, then kills himself

Kenneth Myers, 46, was driving his dead ex-wife’s car when deputies began chasing him early Sunday morning, Aiken County Sheriff’s Capt. Charles Barranco said.

Officers fired several shots at Myers as he tried to ram their cruisers before the chase ended back at the home where deputies found three people dead around 6 p.m. Saturday. Myers then apparently shot himself.

Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton identified the dead as Myers’ wife, 25-year-old Angela Myers; her twin sister, Tabitha Brown; her mother, 50-year-old Vicki Brown; and Myers’ ex-wife, 47-year-old Esther Baldwin. All four died from single gunshots.

Police were checking in with several more people who they thought could be threatened by Myers when they found him and he fled, Barranco said.

Investigators spent all night trying to piece together why Myers might have gone on the killing spree. Deputies weren’t immediately familiar with him before Saturday night.

“It’s hard to say at this point in the investigation why those people were killed,” Barranco said.

Investigators initially thought Myers might be heading for Alabama before finding him not far from where all the killings took place.

The first three bodies were discovered in a secluded, rural home near Wagener, about 40 miles east of Augusta, Ga. Deputies going to check on another person living nearby discovered Baldwin’s body about seven hours later, authorities said.

Investigators have uncovered some threats Myers made to people in the past, but people who have been interviewed so far didn’t think he would turn violent, Barranco said.

Phone calls to several listings related to Myers were not answered Sunday.

“We need to try to find some answers,” Barranco said. “We had a lot of people out all night.”

Wanted: Hitman to Kill Ex-Wife, Just Kidding!
