From the daily mail
Rotenberry did not answer his phone, and his answering machine was full.
Simpson County Sheriff Kenneth Lewis said that Upshaw was found at the home of former Mississippi state Rep. Clint Rotenberry. Rotenberry had not been arrested.
It could be that Rotenberry and his wife were out of town and she was staying at their home. If that happened and someone killed her, this is really strange.
