William Durr
Deputy Sheriff William Durr, age 36, died in the line of duty on May 27, 2017, in Bogue Chitto, Mississippi. 

Bogue Chitto is a village of under 550, located about 10 miles south of Brookhaven. 

Deputy Sheriff Durr was a member of the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, based in Brookhaven, Mississippi. He had two years of service with the Sheriff's Office and four years of prior service with the Brookhaven Police Department.

After 11:00 p.m., William was dispatched to a domestic disturbance call in Bogue Chitto. He arrived at the residence and was shot by a male subject who was having a dispute with his estranged wife. The wife was able to escape from the premises but the male subject murdered three other females at the residence. He then drove to two different locations in Brookhaven and murdered four more people.

Willie Cory Godbolt, age 35, was taken into custody the following morning. He will be charged with 8 murders. 

Michael, Patron Saint of the
Police, pray for William Durr
and for those who have lost him.
Friends describe William Durr as a man of deep religious faith. He was a caring and friendly man who loved to make children smile. He had a good heart. 

The members of the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office and the Brookhaven Police Department are in mourning over the death of their brother. William died in the service of his community. He will be forever remembered.

William's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He was loving and was loved in return. He did his best. He will be forever mourned.

William is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members including his wife and son.

Thank you for your service to the community, William. 

Pray for justice for William Durr.

God save us from the psychopaths. They are killing us, Father. Amen.

Pray that William is in Heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.

Pray for all of the victims of this senseless tragedy.
