The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation (MBI) is assisting the Smith County Sheriff’s Department in the death investigation of Rasheem Carter. Mr. Carter was reported missing by his family on October 2, 2022. On November 2, 2022, skeletal remains were found on a property in Smith County. Those remains were taken to the Mississippi State Crime Lab for examination where they were determined to be those of Mr. Carter.
At the request of the Smith County Sheriff’s Department, MBI joined the investigation on November 4, 2022. MBI has assisted local law enforcement in conducting interviews, investigating the area where the remains were found and investigating tips to help determine the last known whereabouts of Mr. Carter.
A forensic anthropology examination was completed by the Mississippi State Medical Examiners Officer on February 2, 2023. Based solely upon the condition of the remains, there was no means by which a cause of death could be reasonably determined by the medical examiner’s office. However, MBI and the Smith County Sheriff’s Department are actively continuing their investigation into the death of Mr. Carter. Anyone who may have any information is asked to submit a tip to email@example.com.
The Mississippi Department of Public Safety and Mississippi Bureau of Investigation can offer no further comment or details pertaining to the death and disappearance of Mr. Carter due to it being a pending investigation by the Smith County Sheriff’s Department.
