TUNICA, MS (WMC) - Talks of demolishing Harrah's Casino in Tunica, MS have been circulating around the Mid-South.

The casino has been closed for more than six months, and many people still want to know what will happen to the empty casino, hotel and other buildings.

More than one thousand people lost their jobs when Harrah's closed.

WMC Action News 5 received a tip that demolition would soon begin on the properties.

When a Caesars' spokesperson was asked about the future of the casino, he replied: "Caesars continues to explore all options for the Harrah's Tunica property. There is no truth to the rumor of demolition at this time."

People there say it would be a shame not to fill up the empty space with jobs and opportunities.
