Info on murder may lead to reward: Woman’s July killing remains unsolved

Brookhaven Police Chief Bobby Bell said anyone with information about the July murder of Bridget London Hall can call Crimestoppers at 601-823-0150. Tips leading to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward up to $1,000.
No arrests have been made in the July 6 fatal shooting. In August, police said an arrest was coming soon.
“We’re still investigating that and we feel like we’re close to making an arrest,” Bell said then.
Hall, 43, was shot multiple times at close range in her home on Vivian Merritt Street, scarcely 24 hours after a Sunday night shooting and death of Kelcay Anthony Humphrey, 25. A bystander on the scene the morning after Hall’s murder said the shooting happened around 11 p.m. that Monday night. He said around that time, he saw two men fleeing the scene headed toward North Jackson, one riding a bike and one on foot.
Claudis D. Montgomery, 40, of 4208 Highway 550, was charged with murder in Humphrey’s death Tuesday of that week (July 7). Montgomery’s brother, Claude, was Hall’s boyfriend. That association has raised speculation that the two murders are connected.
Bell declined to provide any further details citing the need to preserve the integrity of the investigation.
Hall is survived by four children. The family set up a GoFundMe campaign to help raise funds to support her children.
“She brought joy and lit up the room wherever she went,” the site reads. “Words cannot begin to express the sadness felt knowing that she will no longer be with us here each day.”
