When he entered the bar he found two men holding a barmaid at gunpoint. As he tried to talk them into letting her go they shot him three times.

Both suspects, ages 19 and 21, were arrested, convicted of murder, and sent to prison.

Sergeant Verrett was survived by his wife and two children.

I am Kevin Verrett Sr. Son of Grover C. Verrett Sr. And Mary L Verrett , I truly have a lot fond memories of uncle Lloyd and Lloyd jr. (Corky) and I were very close as we grew into manhood together and we shared a mutual love for our family and felt responsible for all that wore the name of of Verrett whether near or far of course we had the challenges in life that all young men have to endure some we win some we lose but that never stopped us from loving and caring about everyone in this tribe called THE VERRETT'S, I miss you both and now aunt Billie will be joining you guys and I will continue to look out for all that you left behind. Love you!
