Jay went missing on Friday 8th July. Although a body has not been found, a suspect has been arrested and charged with murder.

Jay was reportedly not transgender but identified as a gay man. He was however wearing women's clothing at the time he disappeared.

A man was arrested and charged with the murder of 20-year-old University of Mississippi student Jimmie “Jay” Lee, whose remains have not been found since going missing July 8, officials said Friday.

Sheldon Timothy Herrington Jr., 22, was arrested by the Oxford Police Department and the University of Mississippi Police Department. A bond was not set as of Friday, the agencies said in a joint news release.

CNN was unable to determine whether Herrington has obtained an attorney as of Friday.

Police believe Lee was visiting someone who lives in Molly Barr Trails before disappearing July 8 around 5:58 a.m.

In social media posts reviewed by CNN and images released by authorities, although Lee dresses in women’s clothing and makeup in some pictures and videos, Lee writes that he identifies as a gay male.
