On the morning of Tuesday, July 14, 2015, the Tribe was notified of the untimely death of enrolled tribal member Rexdale Henry, at the Neshoba County Jail.

Tribal Chief Phyliss J. Anderson has been in contact with local and federal authorities since that time. Neshoba County officials announced earlier this week that an inmate was charged with murder in relation to the death. 

“I, along with the entire tribal community, am saddened by the loss of Mr. Henry. I am committed to working with authorities to see justice served in this case,” said Tribal Chief Phyliss Anderson. “Please continue to keep the Henry family in your thoughts and prayers.”
