Female killed after allegedly jumping from vehicle; Cox arrested for River’s Edge theft

The Greene County Sheriff Department is investigating the death of a woman after she supposedly jumped from a vehicle on U.S. Highway 11. The incident happened Wednesday night, March 14, between River’s Edge Bingo facility and the Interstate 20/59 ramp. Witnesses from the scene said it appeared that the woman, since identified as Gypsy Ingram, 40, of Cottondale, jumped from the vehicle and was then run over by that same vehicle, a F250 Ford 2003 pulling a trailer. Greene County Sheriff Joe Benison said the driver has given investigators a statement, and no charges have been filed at this time.
The Greene County Sheriff Department has identified Eric Cox, 34, of Boligee, as the employee arrested for theft of property at River’s Edge Bingo facility one week ago. Cox, who was arrested just across the Alabama state line in Mississippi on March 15, is accused of taking approximately $250,000 from River’s Edge. He is being held in the Greene County jail on a cash bond of $75,000
