An Alcorn County woman was found murdered in a burning car in Tishomingo County Monday by Tishomingo County sheriff's deputies.

The body of Angel Moss, 26, of the Timberling Hills subdivision in Alcorn County, was discovered after the sheriff's office received a call around 9:30 a.m. Monday about a forest fire in the northern part of Tishomingo County, Alcorn County Sheriff Jimmy Taylor said.

According to Taylor, Moss may have been stabbed at her home in Alcorn County, then taken to Tishomingo County where the vehicle, a Jeep Cherokee Laredo, was set on fire with her body inside.

Five suspects are being held for the murder, and Moss' ex-husband, Reggie Moss, 33, of 1511 Washington St., Corinth, is the principle suspect and is charged with possible capital murder, Taylor said.

Regan Moss, 30, a brother to Reggie Moss, of 530 CR 306, is also being held, along with Belinda Christine Moss, 26, a sister-in-law of Reggie Moss, of 530 CR 306; Renita McCormick, 31, sister of Reggie Moss, of 1511 Washington St., Corinth; and Cranston L. Switcher Jr., 36, of 1207 Tate St., Corinth. Reggie Moss could be charged with capital murder, and the other suspects are charged with accessory to murder, Taylor said. No bonds have been set.

Tishomingo County Sheriff's Office, Alcorn County Sheriff's Office, Mississippi State Highway Patrol Criminal Investigation Bureau, Corinth Police Department and the Mississippi State Crime Lab are investigating the murder.
