Arson investigators want new tips in deadly Old Louisville fire

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Arson investigators are hoping for new tips in a unsolved crime in Old Louisville, that killed three people.

A fire broke out the morning of July 2 at an apartment building on South Second Street, killing three tenants.

Flo Filatreau, Theresa Shultz and John Bullock all died as a result of the fire.

From the beginning, investigators called it suspicious.

"We'd just like a better understanding of what happened," said Cameron Harper, the nephew of John Bullock.

Bullock's nephew, Cameron Harper, says his family thinks about that day often.

"It's been awhile -- it's been since July since the incident, and we would just like some answers," said Cameron Harper.

Arson investigators say they've only received a handful of tips so far.

Major Chris Jenkins with the Louisville Metro Arson Squad, says after announcing a person of interest in October, they've followed up on all tips.

They still haven't been able to identify the man, who they believe left the apartment building around the time the fire started.

They've been looking for him for months.

"It's one of those things -- is he a good witness for us, or is he a possible suspect," said Major Chris Jenkins with the Louisville Metro Arson Squad.

The man was caught on surveillance driving a semi truck and investigators have no idea where he actually lives.

"If it's one of those things that he's not from this area and maybe from another city, state...then it's kinda hurting our chances obviously than if it was a Louisville citizen," said Maj. Chris Jenkins.

Major Jenkins says, they want to solve every case, but this one is a priority.

"Especially this time of year. We're going into the holidays, have three families now who are without loved ones for the first time in many, many years, and that affects them and it affects us as well," said Maj. Jenkins.

Bullock's family is still hoping for answers.

"It'd be very, very important for us to find this guy," said Cameron Harper.

If you have any information in this case, call the Metro Arson Squad at 502-574-3721.
