Officer Turner was shot and killed after stopping a stolen vehicle. The car was being driven by two suspects who had overpowered a Mississippi sheriff who was transporting them to court and then shot and wounded another officer. Officer Turner had called for backup after making the stop but was shot and killed before backup officers arrived.

One of the suspects was arrested the next day by Moody Police and the other was arrested on July 6, 1998. One suspect was sentenced to death, with the execution carried out on April 28, 2005. The second second was sentenced to life without parole.

Officer Turner is survived by his wife and child.

Too many memories. Too short a time. Nothing like this was ever supposed to happen to you. You were invincible Keith Turner. Football, softball, cruising broad street, I can go on and on. Love you man, still think about you often.
