A Pontotoc funeral home owner was found dead in his Oxford home early Saturday morning.

Kenneth Roberson, 52, of 1004 Molly Barr Road, was found dead by Oxford Police around 1:35 a.m. after police received a call from family to go check on him, and they are investigating his death as a homicide.

According to Oxford Police Maj. Jeff McCutchen, upon arrival, police found his body and have sent it to the State Medical Examiner for an autopsy. He said results will hopefully be back Monday.
