The Jasper County Sheriff's Office is calling the death of a Ridgeland man a homicide, according to Chief Deputy Roy Hughes.

On Friday, the Sheriff's Office told News Three that the body of a man they discovered in a yard on Mitchellville Road did not seem to be the result of foul play.

However, Jasper County Coroner Martin Sauls said Tuesday that an autopsy found Kenneth Chisolm, 48, died of a broken neck.

Now the Sheriff's Office says they are investigating the events that led to the murder of Chisolm, whom some call a well known man in Ridgeland.

Chisolm's family says he was a special needs man, kindhearted, who did not deserve to be murdered.

"Lord, it hurts so bad. He didn't deserve it," Angela Wright says. "I hope they find out who did it. It's just sad."

According to Wright, a family member, Chisolm loved to visit with friends and family around his neighborhood on Orange Grove Road.

She says he was spending time with friends the night before, in the same area he was found deceased the next morning.
