The mayor of Durham is putting the pressure on law enforcement officials to release the findings of an internal investigation into the death of a teenager while in police custody.
It’s been six weeks since 17-year-old Jesus Huerta died in the backseat of a police car, while handcuffed. Police say he shot himself in the head.
“It’s been out there too long and that is unacceptable for me," said Bell from his office Monday.
Durham Mayor Bill Bell says it’s time to know the details leading to the mysterious shooting of Huerta.
