Body Found in River Identified as Missing Tishimingo Man

Martindale

The decomposed, bloated body of an older white male pulled from the Luxapalila River here last Saturday has been identified as 55 year-old Robert Paul Martindale of Tishimingo. A career truck driver, Martindale was last seen by family members in early December and was reported missing to Tishimingo authorities Dec. 16, 2011.

Martindale’s 1993 blue Ford Explorer was located by Lowndes County Sheriff’s Deputies in early January and towed from its location at Moore’s Creek Road. Deputies found Martindale’s keys and wallet still inside the vehicle and foul play was not suspected at the time. After the vehicle was located, family members filed a missing person’s report with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department.

Witnesses stand by as Coroner Greg Merchant prepares to transport the body to the morgue.

According to those familiar with the case, the family was concerned about Martindale’s mental well-being and warned authorities that he might be suicidal.
His body was found wedged under a boat dock on the Tenn-Tom Waterway near Bud Price Road. According to Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant, the body showed “advanced signs of decomposition” and had been in the water approximately three weeks. The cause of death is believed to be freshwater drowning.

The incident remains under investigation by the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department.

  1. hmmmmm.. lets see.. If you were the family or loved one of this missing person how would you like to read “the decomposed, bloated body”… I think the news tries so hard to capture a readers attention that they forget these are people. Believe me I KNOW from experience … if you wouldn’t write it about your own family member remember it is someone else’s…

  3. Amen, Sister! And facts are important as well. He was found in the Tenn-Tom Waterway, not the Luxapalila. He was found between the riverbank and the dock, not under it. And, the Packet photographer was not allowed close enough to the body to know what it looked like. Regardless of who this man was, or his circumstances, he and his family deserve dignity and respect. The Packet goes too far often times!!!
