Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 10, 1940
Death: Jul. 8, 1991

Aaron Shell, Jr., was murdered by a hitchhiker he picked up on July 8, 1991, killed when Murray "Bobo" Crawford fired three gun shots from a .38 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver into his head.   Apparently, Shell had driven to Fayette, Mississippi, and was returning home for his thirtieth anniversary celebration when he picked up Crawford, who was walking along Highway 84.   According to his confession, Crawford held Shell at gunpoint, forced him out of the truck and into the woods near Hamburg, Mississippi, some distance off Mississippi Highway 33.   He took Shell's wallet and found it empty.   Crawford stated that he had to shoot Shell to keep him from remembering his face. Crawford drove the truck to Slidell, Louisiana, and abandoned it there after killing Shell.
