HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison County investigators are pursuing leads in a cold case murder.

Officials say 19-year-old Wesly Cuevas was found shot to death in his car outside the DuPont Delisle plant nearly 20 years ago. A plant security guard discovered Cuevas slumped over the wheel with the car still running, with two gunshots in his head.

Now, investigators are actively working the case again. Evidence from the car has been submitted for DNA testing and detectives are interviewing friends of the victim.

WLOX Reporter Steve Phillips will have details on WLOX News tonight.
