Roger D. Upchurch

BELZONI — Funeral services  for  Roger Dale Upchurch, 27, who died Sunday morning in an automobile accident, were conducted at 2 p.m. today at Mortimer Funeral Home.

Mr. Upchurch, a truck driver, died after his car caught fire near Flora.

Walter Tucker, chief investigator with the Mississippi Highway Patrol, said it appeared Upchurch had stopped the car on the shoulder of U.S. 49 to sleep. Our investigation shows the car caught fire under the hood and he burned to death inside the vehicle. The highway patrol office was notified of the incident at 4:30 a.m. Sunday.

Mr.  Upchurch is survived by one brother, Dennis Upchurch of Greenwood; and two sisters, Mrs. Betty Smith and Mrs. Peggy Davis, both of Belzoni. Burial was in Skylake Cemetery.
