The Murder of Isiah Terrell Billy


The FBI is seeking information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the 2020 murder of Isiah Terrell Billy. 

Isiah lived on the Navajo Nation in Shiprock, New Mexico at the time of his death. He reportedly vanished on October 4th, 2020 - his 30th birthday. The following day, Isiah's body was found in a wash across the street from a Sinclair gas station in Shiprock. An autopsy determined that he had been strangled to death.

Reports describe Isiah as a quiet and kind young man. He grew up amongst six siblings and was close to his family. Isiah enjoyed playing the trumpet and watching football. There are no reports of Isiah being involved in criminal activity or having any known enemies; there is no known motive for his murder.

Authorities have revealed very little about the investigation into Isiah's case. The events leading up to his disappearance are not publicly known. Both investigators and Isiah's family members continue to appeal to the public in hopes that someone with information will come forward.

There is a reward of up to $10,000 available for "information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for the death of Isiah Terrell Billy." If you have any information that could help the investigation, please submit a tip.
