FBI agents Monday joined the search for furniture heiress Jacqueline Levitz, who investigators fear was murdered.
Vicksburg police and Warren County sheriff’s officers met with federal agents to discuss the case of the 62-year-old socialite, who was last seen alive Nov. 18 as she looked at wallpaper samples at a hardware store.
Police suspect she was murdered that night at her home, where they found a blood-soaked mattress and carpet stained with blood. Investigators said the body may have been taken away in a car spotted by a neighbor that night.
Levitz had moved to Vicksburg in October from Palm Beach, Fla.
