Do you recognize these rings? They were found with a body in Forrest County believed to have been there between 3-5 years.

Authorities in Forrest County are hoping some jewelry will help identify human remains found in October.

In a Facebook post Monday morning, the department posted photos of two rings found near the body, asking for the public’s assistance with identifying the remains, which were discovered on government land the week of October 24th.

Officials with the sheriff’s department, the USM Anthropology Department, and Camp Shelby say they believe the remains had been there between 3-5 years. The two rings were found nearby the bones, and a certified jeweler has verified that due to the cut of the stones and the setting, the diamonds are real and the ring is probably vintage. The band is silver.

Anyone with information as to the identification of the person to whom these rings belonged should contact the FCSO at 601-544-7800 or call Crimestoppers at 601-582-STOP with any further information.
