CARTHAGE, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and the Leake County Sheriff’s Department are investigating the death of a Philadelphia man.

MBI officials say the body of 28-year-old Cortez Aliandiae Coburn was found Friday in a wooded area off a county road.

Coburn had been missing since Jan. 29 when he fled authorities.

Investigators say deputies checked on Coburn after his vehicle ran out of gas. Authorities conducted a routine records check and found outstanding misdemeanor warrants for his Coburn’s arrest. When the deputies asked Coburn about the warrants, he fled into the woods.

His body was found about a quarter mile off Mars Hill Road by a National Guard helicopter crew.

An autopsy has been ordered.
