Hopkins County Sheriff's deputies say the body of 51-year-old Nicky Mullins was found in a grassy area near the White Plains Ball Park early this morning.
Investigators say Mullis is from Nortonville. No one had seen him since Monday afternoon, where he was visiting a friend in White Plains.
"He had visited a friend yesterday," said Detective Otis Chamberlain. "And somewhere around 12:45 a.m., he left the residence. And he didn't return. Between 12:45 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. this morning, his whereabouts were unknown by anybody."
An autopsy this afternoon showed Mullins suffered from medical complications, including a blood clot in his lungs, that officials say contributed to his death.
