WARREN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The body of an 18-year-old man was discovered on the side of a road in Warren County, just outside of Vicksburg, early Tuesday morning. After naming one suspect in the case, police have now issued two murder warrants in the killing. 

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace says his office received a call of a possible body on the side of Old Jackson Road, about one mile northeast of the Vicksburg city limits. When deputies responded at approximately 2 a.m., they found the body of Jules Humphrey, according to Pace.

"He was suffering from a head injury. That was later determined to be a gunshot wound," Pace explained.

Pace says right now details are limited, but the Warren County coroner did discover the gunshot wound was not self inflicted.

"Autopsy showed that [Humphrey] died of a single gunshot wound to the head. Our investigation has led to the issue of an arrest warrant for the charge of murder for Edward Tyrone Mazie, a 29-year-old male from Vicksburg. There is a second individual who has probation violation warrants outstanding on him. Quenterius Cortez Williams who is 18 is also from Vicksburg," Pace said.

Williams, previously wanted for questioning in the case, is now wanted on a murder warrant in the death of Humphrey. Williams also has an outstanding warrant for probation violation through the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

Sheriff Pace explained Friday morning that after new details emerged in the investigation, officials presented the facts to the district attorney, who issued the murder warrant for Williams. Pace adds that both Williams and Mazie have been added to the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) system and police are actively searching for the duo.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Williams or Mazie is asked to call the Warren County Sheriff's Office at (601) 636-1761.
