Noblesville Police Issue New Plea For Tips On Anniversary Of Unsolved Triple Homicide
NOBLESVILLE, Ind. -- It was 26 years ago that an apartment fire in Noblesville took the lives of a mother, her little boy, and her unborn child.
It was arson, say investigators. The fire set at the Noble Manor Apartments on February 26, 1993 killed Hope Brewster, who was just 22 and pregnant with her second child. Her 2-year-old son Jacob was killed as well. Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt says the arsonist and murderer has still not been caught.
"Obviously in the last 26 years there have been significant changes in technology that's available to us," Jowitt said of where the investigations stands right now. "We are certain pursuing that, but it's also important that anyone who has information related to the case come forward."
"It's really important we bring this individual who set the fire to justice," Jowitt added.
He said he wouldn't say they've exhausted other means in trying to find the killer, but that they would certainly like it if someone came forward with that one "significant tip."
If you think you have that tip, please contact Detective Mike Haskett with the Noblesville Police Department at 317-776-6371.
