Second UPDATE: Police not ready to release details

Published: Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 12:36 AM.

Pass Christian Police Investigator Mike Lally says he is not ready to release information regarding a possible suspect in the killing of former Milton High School student Camille Riley (Paul).

Lally says, "Everything is still under investigation," even though friends of the victim are circulating the name of a potential suspect on Facebook.

Sheriff's investigators are working with Lally and the police department in Pass Christian.

Riley was found dead in Pass Christian, Mississippi, after being reported missing more than two weeks ago.

Riley, 20, Long Beach, was last seen alive on Sept. 27, according to Associated Press reports. She was reported missing on Oct. 4th.  Her photo and description appeared on a Facebook page called LostNMissing Inc., as well as in area media where she was last seen.

One Sheriff’s investigator in Harrison County Mississippi says the agency is close to making an arrest in the case, but would offer no additional details. Investigator Kevin Hicks says his agency is working with the police department, because Riley's remains were found inside the city limits, near a railroad track.

It is being reported that a passerby told authorities he smelled an odd odor and saw a human foot, prompting him to call authorities.
