JACKSON, Miss. – Shortly before his November 17 execution by the State of Mississippi, David Neal Cox agreed in writing to waive his attorney-client privilege after his death. This allowed his attorneys with the Office of Capital Post-Conviction Counsel (CPCC) to disclose the alleged location of the body of his sister-in-law, Felecia Cox, who has been missing since 2007. Mr. Cox felt deep remorse and wanted to bring closure to her family.

After Mr. Cox’s death, the CPCC began working with the proper authorities and providing information about the disappearance of Felecia Cox and the alleged location of her body.

The CPCC expresses its sympathy for the family of Felecia Cox and appreciates the hard work, respect, and professionalism provided by the District Attorney’s Office for the First Circuit Court District and the Pontotoc County Sheriff’s Department.
