Justice for Cortez Coburn

This is what we know:

We know Cortez “Dre” Coburn was last seen alive on January 27, 2014.

His body was discovered on February 7th, 2014.

The last people to see him alive, were the Leake Co. Sheriff’s Department.

Between the time he went missing to the time his body was discovered, the sheriff’s department didn’t do anything to alert the family or the media that Cortez fled their custody.

The department won’t answer questions that would answer what they would do if a subject should flee law enforcement.

*Background

Cortez Coburn may have run out of gas in the middle of the night and was trying to get back home. Accounts from friends allege that his gas hand may have been broken.

We’re not sure how the police arrived on the scene (we’ll post updates when we get them) but after “assisting” him, ran a “routine” check, and found that he had outstanding warrants. (Possession of paraphernalia and resisting arrest). They allege that Cortez then fled. (VERY UNLIKELY)

His body was found by helicopter, the National Guard, in a creek, after a “local search” turned up cold.

An autopsy has been ordered. Officials are suggesting that maybe he froze to death or died of hypothermia. (highly unlikely)

The MBI is now investigating.
