Family and friends will gather Friday to remember the man found hanging in Mississippi.

The FBI is still working to determine whether Otis Byrd was murdered or if he committed suicide.

Thirty state, local, and federal investigators are working the case.

The memorial service is set for Friday at 2 p.m. in Port Gibson, MS at Mount Burner Baptist Church.
