Update on Incident at 3706 Millbridge

July 18, 2005 -- Houston police homicide investigators hope one of the largest rewards ever offered in a criminal case can help lead to the identity of a suspect(s) in the fatal shooting of four people in a Clear Lake home two years ago today.

It was about 3:30 p.m. on July 18, 2003 when the bodies of Tiffany Rowell, 18, Rachel Koloroutis, 18, Marcus Precella, 19, and Adelbert Sanchez, 21, were found in Rowell's residence at 3706 Millbridge. Each had suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants B. Harris and L. Baimbridge are reporting the following:

Despite numerous law enforcement agencies and investigators working on this case, no arrests have been made at this time. The victims' families have raised money through donations from themselves and area residents to help Crime Stoppers offer its largest ever reward of $100,000. In June 2004, investigators received an anonymous Crime Stoppers tip that led to the release of two composite sketches of persons seen going to the home shortly before the murders. Families of the victims placed billboards with the sketches and the phone contact number for Crime Stoppers.

Since the incident, there has been much speculation as to the motive of the shooting. Numerous interviews have been conducted and investigators are confident the motive is drug related. Investigators believe they have spoken directly with some of the people involved in the killings. The motive suggests the suspects were - at the very least - acquaintances of the victims.

The tip that led to the release of the sketches last June was very specific and is still considered the best lead in the case. Unfortunately, the tipster has never called back. It is hoped the release of the motive will encourage the tipster to call back.

Anyone with information on the suspect(s) wanted in this capital murder case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
