    Mississippi authorities and the FBI are trying to determine whether an African-American man found hanging from a tree in Claiborne County committed suicide or was the victim of a brutal homicide.

    "We don't know," one law enforcement official told ABC News. "It could go either way."

    Still, as a precaution, the FBI has opened a preliminary civil rights investigation, focusing on whether the victim's race may have played a role in his death. Authorities are also trying to figure out whether the victim is a man known to them who served time for the murder of a white female, but they're still working to verify the victim's identity, ABC News was told.

    The presumed victim was last seen March 2 and, within days, his family filed a missing person report with the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Department. The FBI and Mississippi Bureau of Investigation were then asked to help, the FBI said in a statement.

    Earlier today, the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Department and the Mississippi Wildlife Fisheries and Parks conducted a ground search for the man.

    "Officers located a man hanging in the woods near Roddy Road a half mile from his last known residence," according to the FBI.

    Agents from the FBI and MBI are on the scene trying to determine how the man died.

    Those wacky SAE frat boys were probably responsible. They even have a song about it.

    Weird part of Mississippi. I never liked that region.
    Lots of black folks all in Jackson.
    South of Jackson, it's really rural and kind of scary.
    I hated going through that way on trips to New Orleans.

    Actually I have no idea where Mississippi is, all I know is that it is in the U.S. somewhere, probably closer to the bottom and it is near a big river.

    You could have posted a generic "man hanging from tree" photo to avoid disappointing the shedders.

    About 15 years ago a 17 year old black kid went out for the afternoon and the parents went looking for him and found him in the evenng hanging in a tree by his shoelaces. It was a pretty fucked up scene. The coroner found a suicide note in his shirt pocket but the parents still insisted it was a murder. Pretty sad.

    On a lighter note........I made my rookie, a short wrestler type with a HUGE ego, climb the tree cut him down. As he was cutting through the laces the body shifted and the kids engorged tongue bumped into the rookie's neck. He screamed like a little girl. One of my best memories. :c
