Many Questions In Canton Homicide

East Texas authorities diverted traffic on part of Interstate 20 after finding a dead body near the woods.

Authorities made the discovery on the Highway 19 entrance ramp just inside the Canton city limits Monday morning. They say the suspect in the case, Ronald Rosemond is a white male in his mid-fifties. Rosemond was last seen in a 1991 white Plymouth Voyager with Texas license plate W06 RCD.

Three people including the victim, the suspect and a female eyewitness were all traveling together. Police say the witness ran to a nearby gas station where authorities were called. Authorities then found the victim's body near the woods.

It appears he was shot, but an autopsy has been ordered. The Texas Rangers are heading up the investigation.
