Cass Co. Sheriff’s Office and Crime Stoppers work to solve 28-year-old cold case

CASS CO., Ind. (WLFI) – The Cass County Sheriff’s Office is working with Crime Stoppers in an effort to solve a 28-year-old cold case.

On Feb. 22, 1987, officers were dispatched to a car fire, just south of Logansport. Investigators found Lois Tolleson laying in a pool of blood 10 feet away from the vehicle.

Lois had been shot three times. Her husband, Anthony, was shot in the head and was still inside the car. The car was set on fire after the shootings.

Fast forward to the present, investigators are still looking for answers.

“Part of these PSAs is to let the families know that we’re still looking, police departments are still looking,” said Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana’s Steve DuBois. “We still offer rewards, even though the case was way back in ’87 and the police departments are still trying to figure out what happened and charge somebody.”

Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana worked with Ball State students and local law enforcement agencies to produce public service announcements for cold cases.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Cass County Sheriff’s Office at 574-753-7800. You can leave an anonymous tip by calling Central Indiana Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
