COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - An unsolved murder case dating back eight years may have grown cold, but Columbus Police are hoping a sketch of the suspect will generate new leads.

Iris Charlene Harless was murdered on a nice spring day on March 3, 2003.

The crime happened inside a home at 4717 Northgate Drive near Reese Road in east Columbus. 

How it happened is unclear, but Officer Paul Moody with the Columbus Police Department says this is what they believe the suspected gunman looks like.

A detective in the Columbus Police Department drew a sketch of the man wanted in Harless' murder. The description was given by witnesses in the neighborhood.

"We've got two to three different sketches of the individual, he's described as a white male, approximately in in 20s or 30 and since 2003 he will appear older now," Moody said.  

As you can see in the different sketches, one image shows the man wearing glasses, but Moody says he may not be wearing them now.

He also said to about 5 feet 8 inches tall, and weigh approximately 190 pounds. He has a medium build and is semi muscular with scars on his right hand, chest and abdomen.

Help Columbus police bring this man to justice if you know anything about who this suspected killer may be.

The number to call the Columbus Police Department's Homicide Division is (706) 653-3400.
