Man found dead after plans to buy ATV from Facebook Marketplace
OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (Gray News) - A man from Ocean Springs, Mississippi was found dead last week after planning to meet up with a seller from Facebook Marketplace.
She said her brother was known for buying and fixing ATVs and had been using Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist to find four-wheelers for the past decade.
Kyle Craig had spoken to a seller he knew about in Holmes County and arrived around 9:30 a.m. last Wednesday, which was the last time Morgan Craig said she heard from her brother.
The family tracked his phone and drove four hours to his last known location.
“We pulled up exactly on his last known location and there was my brother laying on the road murdered,” his sister said.
According to Holmes County Sheriff Willie March, Kyle Craig’s Gray Ram 2500 pickup truck and trailer were found about a mile and half apart from each other – the trailer riddled with bullet holes.
The sheriff’s department is searching for Montavious Landfair in connection to Kyle’s death.
Anyone with information on Landfair’s whereabouts is asked to contact Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 877-787-5898. They will pay up to $2,500 for information that leads to a felony arrest.
Three juveniles in custody for unrelated charges are also being questioned in connection to Kyle Craig’s death.
