A Yazoo man wanted for questioning in connection with a recent murder remains at large as investigators continue to search for him.
Billy Drain is considered a person of interest who deputies would like to question about an attempted armed robbery on Patterson Road that led to murder on Feb. 1.
“He may have information that would lead to an arrest in this case,” said Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department. “He is hiding out on us, and we could use any help from the public to locate him for questioning.”
Henry Glen Renfrow died from a gunshot wound after an armed suspect, wearing a mask, entered his home with a rifle demanding money earlier this month.
The murder occurred at Renfrow’s home, located at 3430 Patterson Rd.
Gann said a silver car with two passengers stopped near Renfrow’s home, with a black male approaching the home to ask for water.
“A black male came to the door asking for water, saying their car was running hot,” Gann said. “There were two females and three males inside the home. But other than the victim, only one person inside the home actually saw the suspects.”
After one suspect asked for a larger water container, another subject entered the home wearing a mask and holding a rifle, demanding money.
Gann said Renfrow’s son grabbed the barrel of the rifle and attempted to take it away from the suspect. During the struggle, Renfrow ran behind his son to help him when the suspect shot him.
The two suspects then fled the scene in the same silver vehicle.
Gann said the description of the masked, armed suspect is unknown at this time.
“Any information that could lead to an arrest through Crimestoppers could also lead to reward money,” Gann said.
