A man wanted in a shooting that left two injured and another dead, a suspect in a sex crimes case involving minor victims and other alleged armed robbers, car thieves, burglars, embezzlers, drug peddlers and convicted sex offenders top the latest list of South Mississippi's most-wanted criminal suspects.
