Magnolia Springs death suspected homicide

A property owner checking on a tenant found the man dead around noon Monday in what authorities said appears to be a homicide in the victim’s mobile home off Baldwin County 49.

Officials have not confirmed how Edward Wayne McCrory, 52, died, Baldwin County Sheriff Huey “Hoss” Mack Jr. said at the scene.

“There was obviously trauma to Mr. McCrory’s body,” Mack said. “We won’t know the full extent of his injuries until an autopsy. Right now, we are treating this as a possible homicide.”
