VICKSBURG (WTVB) - It’s hard to keep a secret in a small town, especially in the age of Facebook. Vicksburg detectives have obtained a warrant from the county Prosecutor’s office naming a 21-year-old Vicksburg man as the suspect in the arson fire that destroyed the historic Vicksburg Paper Mill back on August 10th. Apparently there was a group of over half a dozen young adults, hanging out at the mill and drinking that night when the fire began. The suspect’s name has reportedly been circulating in the town’s rumor mills and Facebook pages for weeks, giving the suspect plenty of time to leave town, or go into hiding. Police are searching for him. The mill had been closed for over a decade, used most recently as a warehouse.
