Officer Crenshaw balloon release

RUSSELL HOOD/STAFF

Friends and family of the late Keith Crenshaw release balloons in his memory from the parking lot of Eupora’s Kangaroo Express. The convenience store sponsored the balloon release in support of his family on the evening of Oct. 23, which was the one-year anniversary of the Eupora police officer’s death in the line of duty. Crenshaw was struck and killed by a getaway car occupied by armed robbery suspects at the nearby U.S. 82 exit onto Mississippi 9 while deploying a spike strip during their pursuit.
