UPDATE: No justice 7 years after murder

Through her tears Susie Wagner's pleading for people with information on her son's death to come forward.

She tells News First 5 that she still can't drive by the murder scene without crying.  She has a tough time in public places sometimes, wondering if the murderers, or accomplices, are in the same place.

"You really can't go anywhere where you're not looking over your shoulder," she said, "not because you're nervous, or fear for yourself or anything like that, it's so hard to explain -- but because I'm constantly looking around wondering who might know something and isn't telling." 

Pueblo Police say they think they know who murdered Derrick, but they need more evidence. They're hoping new technological advances in DNA and other forensics will open the door for new evidence.  Some of the samples from the 2003 murder scene were too small to analyze until recently.

They also know that some of the people who they believe were involved in the murder are no longer friends and perhaps someone might be willing to come forward now with new evidence.

If you have any information contact Pueblo Crimestoppers at 542-STOP (542-7867).

The mother of a murder victim is asking for help, as police take a new look at an old case that's bothered them.

Derrick Wagner was shot and killed in a home invasion break-in on Pueblo's northside 7 years ago.

Police arrested several suspects, but the case crumbled because of unreliable witnesses.

Pueblo Crimestoppers sent out an alert this week asking for people to come forward with any information.

News First 5 is talking with police and the victim's mother and will have more on the continuous news feed and News First 5 at 10pm tonight.
