The Associated Press



SALTILLO -- Lee County Coroner Carolyn Gillentine-Green says a state medical examiner''s report has concluded that the shooting death of Anna Catherine McCoy was consistent with that of a homicide. 


Gillentine-Green says McCoy was shot on the right side of her mouth. 


Saltillo police investigator Mark Haygood tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that before the department calls McCoy''s death a murder they will wait for the full report to come in. Haygood said he hoped to have it within the next 72 hours. 


The 20-year-old McCoy was found shot to death at a home in Saltillo on Thursday night. 


She was an Itawamba Community College soccer player and daughter of retired Tupelo police officer Cotton McCoy. 


No one has been charged in the case.
