Community to remember murdered Hattiesburg man

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Members of the Hattiesburg Community and the family of the 22 year old Hattiesburg man murdered on Christmas Eve will come together Saturday to remember him.

Twenty-two-year-old Elester Sartin was shot to death Monday at the Pineview Apartment Complex on Country Club Road in what appears to be a drug deal gone bad between two sets of brothers.  Five people have been charged in the murder.

Saturday the family will come together with Mr. Hattiesburg, Papa John's Pizza, Coca Cola of Hattiesburg, and other members at 1:00 p.m. at the location where the murder took place. A banner is being made remembering Sartin and those who will attend will be permitted to sign the banner.

The event is being held to get the word out that tragic incidents like this need to stop in the community. Sartin's Mother is expected to speak during the event.

Free pizza and drinks from Papa John's and Coca Cola will be available at the event.
