Flyers posted in Moss Point with stabbing victim's picture

Posted: Updated:
MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

Flyers are now posted in Moss Point businesses showing what David Drinkard looked like, with the hopes of triggering more information in his violent death.

On the morning of August 7th, Drinkard was found stabbed to death on the porch of a home on McCall Street. Evidence has lead investigators to believe Drinkard was stabbed near the house where he was found.

Investigators do think drugs played a part in the murder, but police chief Keith Davis isn't ready to reveal exactly how.

Chief Davis told WLOX News the community has been a tremendous help. He's asking for you to speak up if you know anything in relation to this case.

"Someone saw something. Someone heard something," Davis said. "No matter how insignificant it may seem to you, it's important we know about it because it may put that one piece of the puzzle together that we are missing right now."

If you have any information at all, you can relay that message anonymously to Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 877-787-5898.

We'll continue to follow this murder investigation and more developments are announced.
