NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) – Police in Noblesville are taking a fresh look at a deadly 1993 fire that claimed the lives of three people and forced dozens more from their homes. The department is hopeful someone will come forward with new information.
According to the Noblesville Police Department, the Feb. 26, 1993, fire at the Noble Manor apartment building was intentionally set.
Police say three people were killed in the fire; 2-year-old Jacob Brewster, 22-year-old Hope Brewster and her unborn child.
While Noblesville police say they have never stopped investigating the case, they are hoping the passage of time leads to new clues. Detectives are currently revisiting witnesses and looking to new advancements in DNA technology.
“Cold case is almost kind of a misnomer. It’s an old case,” says Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt. “We certainly haven’t forgotten and we basically started a complete re-investigation of this case several months ago, which is why we’re appealing to anyone now who has information to try and help us.”
