Marco McMillan, the first openly gay candidate for mayor of Clarksdale, Mississippi, was beaten, dragged, and set on fire, according to a statement from his family that was released on Monday. His body was recovered last Wednesday from a levee along the Mississippi River.

McMillan, 34, was reported missing early last week after his SUV was recovered from a crash on Highway 49 near the Coahoma/Tallahatchie county line. McMillan was not driving his vehicle at the time of the crash. Instead, it was driven by 22-year-old Lawrence Reed, the man who police charged with McMillan's murder last Thursday.

McMillan's death remains under investigation.
