To all who are listening, one of the killers of Officer Langham (Otis Lee Fairley) has passed away while incarcerated. He died after serving 36 years of his life sentence. I hope that this gives Officer Langham's friends and family some closure and justice.

Trooper "Country Boy" Billy Langham was in my class at the MHP Academy Class #13.
He was liked by everyone that knew him. Only met him 2 times after graduation at training classes.
He was just Billy...

I was born in Crystal Springs, MS.
an after attending Miss. State, I served for 20 years in the US Air Force. I have traveled frequently on HWY 49 from Florida enroute to Crystal Springs. There has not been a time that I look at the memorial sign in Collins and not wonder about trooperLangham, his family and the tragic loss of his life. The brutality and cowardice of this senseless crime needs to be punished with everything that the law allows. The parole board needs to demonstrate courage in denying this parole.

The time has come again that we have to have "No Parole" letters sent to the Parole Board to make sure one of my grandfather's murderers does not get parole. Inmate Montgomery is up for parole again. Please stand with our family and send your letters to make sure such an evil man isn't allowed to walk the streets as a free man, while my grandfather never got the option. I never got the chance to meet him because of this man and the others decision to take his life away. As always, our family appreciates all of your love and support!
