LAMAR COUNTY, Miss. - Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel said they are investigating the deaths of two people whose bodies were found in Oak Grove in the Lake Serene Community.

Around 6 p.m. Thursday, sheriff deputies found one body inside of a home and another inside of a vehicle.

The incident happened at a residence off of King Road on Pompano Drive.

Lamar County Deputy Coroner Anne Miller identified the two bodies as 53-year-old Darylman Posey of Hattiesburg, and 46-year-old Marilyn Hatten of Collins.

Miller said Posey's body was found in an upstairs bathroom of the residence.
