Kyle Craig’s family knew something was wrong when they didn’t hear from him for 24 hours after he headed off to buy an ATV he found on Facebook Marketplace.
On Thursday morning, they reported him missing and took off from Ocean Springs on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast for Holmes County, following Craig’s location on their 360 app.
“We drove four hours, four hours to his last known location,” his sister Morgan Craig told WLOX. “We pulled up exactly on his last known location, and there was my brother laying on the road murdered.”
Kyle Craig, 26, was found shot to death near a truck stop on Long Branch Road in Holmes County. The victim’s gray Ram 2500 pickup truck and trailer he was pulling were missing, but the trailer was found quickly, on Interstate 55 some 20 miles away, riddled with bullets, Holmes County Sheriff Willie March said. The truck was found too, about a mile and a half from where the trailer was found.
March said deputies have three juveniles in custody on unrelated charges and are questioning them about the case. They’re also looking for an adult, Montavious Landfair, in connection with the murder.
Morgan Craig said fixing ATVs was a hobby for her brother — fixing anything, really.
“He always had a hustle,” she said. “Teachers have come forward and said he always fixed pencil sharpeners and stuff around the classroom. His hands were made to fix stuff.”
Anyone with any information on Montavious Landfair is asked to call Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 877-787-5898.
