  • my dad is dewayne crenshaw. My family really appreciates all the support that we have recieved during this time of great sadness. Before my dad was killed him and I were trying to search for his best Army buddy Brian Jones we searched for years with no success. I have limited information and would love to continue the search. like I said his name is Brian Jones they were stationed together in Ft Rich Alaska 1980 to 1983 and then again on Ft Bragg NC 1983 to .1985. his wifes name was Audrey Jones and they had a daughter named Heidi Jones that was born in Alaska in 1981 or 1982. if someone could help continue this search for my dads best friend. email me at [email protected]

  • A 62 year old deputy struggling to arrest a 26 year man and being killed. This is a good example why our police officers should not have to work to age 60 or 65. God bless Deputy Crenshaw.

  • Deputy DeWayne Crenshaw was my nephew, and we are all still heartbroken over his death and how it happened. He was a wonderful person, a very good husband and father and really was a gentleman. We miss him terribly. We thank everyone who have helped us in our grief. And the police department was very kind to us as he was laid to rest.
