Wilmington police are looking for clues in the case of a fatal shooting victim whose body was found in a car parked in a shopping center lot for hours.
Police say footage shot by surveillance cameras might help determine the circumstances of Jimmy A. Lewis' death. The 27-year-old Lewis was found early yesterday in the front seat of a 1986 Buick Skylark with its motor running.
Lewis used a teller machine at a nearby bank about midnight Sunday. An employee at a nearby restaurant said the car was in the lot with its lights on about 12:30 a-m Monday and still was there when the restaurant's employees came in about 4 a-m.
