Grenada County Coroner Eddie “Skeeter” Robinson III was arrested Thursday by the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office for what that office calls “making unlicensed and fake sales of funeral plans to senior citizen(s).”
Robinson, 51, was indicted by a DeSoto County grand jury on six counts. He was indicted on two counts of insurance fraud, one count of wire fraud, one count of false pretense, one count of embezzlement, and one count of conspiracy. His funeral home is also listed in the indictment under three names: Eddie “Skeeter” Robinson Funeral Home, Robinson Funeral Home, and Eddie Robinson Funeral Homes.
Robinson is currently in his fourth term as Grenada County Coroner.
