LEXINGTON, Ind. (WDRB) – The family of a woman murdered nearly two months ago in her southern Indiana home hopes a reward will lead to vital information in the case.

According to the Scott County Sheriff's Office, deputies found Michele Brewer, 45, and Jesse "Willie" Bowling, 51, shot to death inside Brewer's home on State Road 356 in Lexington, Indiana around 8:30 p.m. on March 28.

“The feelings and the emotions, it’s just been unbearable,” described Michele’s sister, Teresa Brewer. “Every day, you think about it, what she went through, and it’s just terrible.”

Michele Brewer was a mother of three. Her family says Bowling was staying with her and would do yard work, and feed the dogs.

“Willie was her good friend, and we all love Willie. He was a very kind soul,” described Teresa Brewer.

With no arrests in the case, and no possible motive released, Teresa Brewer created a GoFundMe page to collect donations for a reward fund.

“I’m trying to figure out every single thing I can possibly do to have someone come forward,” Teresa Brewer said. “I’m thinking if I can get some kind of reward out there, someone will start thinking about it and come forward.”

Teresa Brewer says there have been rumors around town about what might've happened, but she won't stop trying until she finds out the truth.

"Michele’s gone. Nobody else can do anything to her no more. We’re still left here with grief. And we’re left wondering. So, if anybody knows anything, please, please say something," said Teresa Brewer.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Scott County Sheriff's Office at 812-752-8400 or the tipline at 812-752-7898.
