Police arrested a woman who they said is connected to the death of a Southaven man.

The body of Calvin Holloway, 25, was found Wednesday in a field near Crossfield and Holmes Roads. The Shelby County Medical examiner ruled Holloway’s death a homicide.

Police said an investigation revealed that Rebecca Allison, 21, was one of the suspects at the scene when Holloway was killed.

Investigators found Allison at the Southern Inn & Suites on Stateline Road in Southaven, where she agreed to come to the homicide office in Memphis for further investigation.

Officers said Allison gave a statement admitting to having knowledge of Holloway’s death, being in Holloway’s vehicle after his death, wiping evidence from the vehicle, and leaving the vehicle in Oakshire Apartments.

Wessinger Sharp said his best friend went missing a week ago.

“He's been my best friend for eleven plus years the only best friend I've ever known,” Sharp said.

Sharp said he called Allison when Holloway went missing. He is upset that she said she did not know where he was.

"To just lie boldly to somebody's face that deeply cared about him. How can you sleep at night?" Sharp asked. “I called you; I asked you, ‘hey have you seen Calvin?’ you told me no. You lied to me.”

The medical examiner has yet to reveal the cause of Holloway’s death.

Sharp wants justice for a friend he thinks about every day.

“I just wish I could just tell him that I miss him.”

Allison is charged with accessory after the fact – first-degree murder.
