An estimated seven-mile long funeral procession traveled down Highway 82 west of Eupora Sunday as a tribute in mass to a Eupora police officer killed last week in the line of duty.
Police, fire and ambulance units, from cities and counties in all over Mississippi and beyond, led the impressive procession to a Choctaw County cemetery where 52-year-old Keith Crenshaw was laid to rest.
