Man Declines Comment As Police Investigate Wife's Murder

The husband of a woman found dead in a trash can in the Mississippi River isn't talking, as police continue to search for her killer.
MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) -- The husband of a woman found dead in a trash can in the Mississippi River isn't talking, as police continue to search for her killer.

A construction worker found the body of Latisha Harris stuffed inside a trash can early Monday morning.

"I can't talk about that," Gregory Boxley said on Wednesday evening.

According to court records, Boxley and Harris got married in Crittenden County in late June.

"They always sit right there on the back door stop on the ground, she is always in his lap," Taylor said.

While Boxley isn't talking, neighbors are, including one who said he woke up in the middle of the night last week and saw around a dozen police officers at the apartment Boxley and Harris shared.

"They had all kinds of writing they were doing inside and out, talking on radios and everything else," Taylor said.

Taylor said police officers returned to the apartment on Tuesday night, the same day police identified Harris's body.

"When you go in wearing your blue gloves and go inside like you were last night, they were even taking photographs of the door," Taylor said.

Taylor added it was unusual to see police officers at their midtown Memphis apartment complex off Poplar.

"We hardly ever see the police in here for nothing," he said. "Makes me nervous, the wife is really upset right now, because we really don't know what is going on."

Boxley has not been charged or named a suspect in Harris's murder.

A Memphis Police spokeswoman said Wednesday night that the investigation remained ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 528-CASH.
