TERRY, MS (WLBT) -

Family and friends celebrated the life of gospel singer Murphy Wilson Saturday.

Salem Missionary Baptist Church in Terry was filled to capacity for Wilson's funeral.

The 36-year-old died earlier this month after a house fire on East Drive.

He was involved in several Jackson area churches and was also a member of the Mississippi Mass Choir.

Shortly after Wilson's death, his brother offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Authorities are still waiting on final autopsy results in the case.

At this point, it's unclear if foul play was a factor in Wilson's death.
