Aryan Brotherhood link to slaying arrest in Petal; police looking for body
The Associated Press
HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Mississippi Bureau of Investigation agents have arrested a 31-year-old Petal man on a murder charge. However, they still are searching for the body of the alleged victim.
Eric Glenn Parker is being held at the Forrest County Jail on a $250,000 bond. He was arrested Nov. 19.
MBI spokesman Jon Kalahar told the Clarion Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/rWzlRS) that more suspects may be arrested in connection with the homicide.
Investigators believe the slaying happened during December 2010 in the Hattiesburg and Petal area.
"Even without the body, he (the investigator) thinks it's a pretty solid case," Kalahar said.
Kalahar said the case came to the agency on Oct. 30. He did not release the name of the alleged victim.
Parker has ties to the Aryan Brotherhood, but he said the slaying may not necessarily be gang-related, Kalahar said.
Law enforcement got wind of Parker after Parker purportedly told others of the slaying, he said. They reported it to police almost a year later.
The investigator has interviewed many people who already are incarcerated, Kalahar said.
"They're trying to keep who they talk to hush-hush," he said. "Basically, this case is coming down to who he can get to talk to him."
