June 15, 2017, Updated June 16, 2017
[Excerpts] The investigation is still ongoing into the death of a McComb police officer's wife. Jasmin "Nikki" Ceely was shot to death Friday night... Nikki Ceely was shot with [her McComb police officer husband] Frank Ceely's department-issue shotgun... The Pike County Sheriff's Department and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation are handling the probe, McComb Police Chief Scott McKenzie said Thursday... Pike County Chief Deputy Chris Bell called it an "officer-involved shooting" early in the case... MBI spokesman Warren Strain said he's not sure "why that (officer involved) terminology was used," as authorities have not released a determination based on the autopsy results. He said lab and autopsy results will be used to determine "whether or not it's self-inflicted... We're waiting on the autopsy and interview process, just like any investigation"... McKenzie said he's trying to give the investigating agencies their space as they continue to look into the death... "We're just trying not to interfere"...

CEELYS DEATH UNSOLVED. MS OFFICER WIFE ALLEGED SUICIDE JASMIN CEELY -- Investigators unable to determine if shooting was suicide or homicide
20 Jul 2017
[Excerpts] Investigators have not been able to determine if the death of a McComb police officer's wife was a suicide or homicide, authorities familiar with the probe said Wednesday. Pike County Coroner Percy Pittman said Wednesday afternoon that officials with the state medical examiner's office in Jackson could not verify who fatally shot Jasmin N. Ceely... Ceely died June 9, at her home on Brandi Lane in Summit... Despite the lack of conclusive findings from the medical examiner's office, Bates said the case could still go before a Pike County grand jury. "I think it has to," he said. "Let the jury hear all the facts and make a decision." Bates said officials from his office, along with authorities from the Pike County Sheriff's Department and the MBI, will meet in Jackson to discuss how to proceed with the case...
QUESTIONS ABOUND IN WOMAN'S DEATH
24 Dec 2017
[Excerpts] On June 9, the wife of a McComb police officer died in a shooting at the couple's home outside Summit. Nearly half a year later, questions about what led to the death of Jasmin Nicole "Nikki" Ceely, 30, are still unanswered. The incident was first characterized as an officer-involved shooting, since her husband, McComb police officer Frank Ceely, 50, was present when the incident occurred. Investigators, however, backpedaled on that description, saying it's unclear who shot Mrs. Ceely... No charges have been filed in the incident. District Attorney Dee Bates said he would present the case to a grand jury... Frank Ceely was placed on administrative leave as the investigation continued. He resigned from the police department in July, saying he needed time to focus on the couple's young son.
...No charges have been filed in the incident. District Attorney Dee Bates said he would present the case to a grand jury...
