Alabama marine killed in hit-and-run in Mississippi

GORDO, Ala. (WIAT) — A person of interest is in custody after a former Alabama marine was killed in a hit and run in Mississippi.

Cason Park, 25, was hit on Highway 82 in Oktibbeha County Sunday morning.

His car had broken down and he was going for help.

Another driver called Highway Patrol after seeing Park’s backpack and clothes scattered across the highway.

CBS42 spoke with CBS affiliate WCBI in Mississippi, and they say one person has turned himself in, but no charges have been filed.

In the meantime, Park will be laid to rest Thursday in Gordo.
