Sources told MemphisRap.com the man identified as 30-year-old Marcus Turner of Memphis found dead, possibly murdered, in a weedy ditch off Stateline Road in Olive Branch, is the same Marcus Turner known to many as Memphis rapper Marcus “SS Boy” Turner.
While an autopsy has been conducted, many already had thoughts that SS Boy was murdered. Police are saying the absence of any disturbance in the North Mississippi area where the body was found indicates that Turner likely was killed elsewhere and then dumped in the ditch.
Maj. Don Gammage, chief of detectives for Olive Branch police, said the best estimate is that Turner’s body remained in the ditch for 12 to 15 hours before it was discovered by an Olive Branch public works crew about 2:15 p.m. Wednesday.
Gammage and Heun asked that anyone with information about Turner call Olive Branch police at (662) 895-4111 or DeSoto County Crimestoppers at (662) 429-TIPS (8477).
