Mississippi coroner asking for help identifying man hit and killed by 18 wheeler

A Mississippi coroner is asking for public help identifying a man that hit and killed by an 18 wheeler on Monday morning.

From Monroe county coroner Alan Gurley on social media:

Please do not respond here. I need help on identification of a person. A pedestrian was stuck by a 18 wheeler just before 2am this morning south of Aberdeen on highway 25 near the highway 382 intersection.
He is a white male, seems to be over 60 years old. He was wearing a black Jesse’s Package Store tee shirt, a cap with ‘Lucky Rooster’ on it and blue jeans. No official identification could be located.

If you have a loved one missing or might know who this person is please call my cell phone immediately. The number is 662-315-0311. I regret having to post here but out of respect to his family I want to get them notified ASAP. Please, no public posts here. Thank you.
