( 4UMF NEWS ) Man's Severed Head Found On Porch:

Police in Jackson, Mississippi, found a severed head on the front porch of a home Saturday morning.

There was no body, which police have yet to recover.

Jackson Police Department spokesman Cmdr. Tyree Jones said the head belonged to a young black male who has not yet been identified.

The cause of death, he said, appeared to be "severance."

"We have to investigate these crimes and hold people accountable," said Jones.

Authorities said they got a call at 9:19 a.m. When they arrived on scene, they found the remains on the stairs of the home. The steps had to be washed off and a crowd gathered near the scene.

"Someone's sending a message," one man said. "Why else do you do that?"'
