County & Local Officials Collaborate On Case

"OXFORD, MS — At 9:43 a.m on Oct. 13, the Oxford Police Department responded to an ambulance assistance call on St. Andrews Circle. At approximately the same time, the Lafayette County Sheriff’s office was responding to a call on County Road 105 about a possible suicide.

"Once both separate scenes were determined safe and the surrounding area was secured, the Oxford Police Department and Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office initiated a joint investigation. The investigation indicates that the incident was a murder/suicide of two associated individuals. The investigation has determined that the two individuals found at the separate scenes were killed by gunshot. The victims were identified as Sharon Pegues Orange and Michael Vernon Orange.

"Sharon Pegues Orange was the estranged wife of Michael Vernon Orange and at this time authorities have not determined if the couple was legally divorced."
