The Angela Freeman missing person case now has new life.

Petal police Chief Lee Shelbourn says by order of District Attorney Jon Mark Weathers, he is forming a task force to re-investigate the Angela Freeman case. Shelburn says his detectives are gathering all existing evidence.

Shelbourn says Petal police, Forrest County District Attorney's office, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations and the Perry County Sheriff's Department are joining forces to bring closure for a family that has suffered so much.

"We have no additional information," he said. "We don't want to give anyone any false hope. We are just looking at an old case."

Angela Freeman disappeared just before the Mahned Bridge murders for which Kenneth Moody is serving a life sentence. But no connection has been made between Freeman's disappearance and those crimes.
