Crow Charged with Murder Based on Statements From Friends

CORPUS CHRISTI - 32-year old Jacob Crow, the man police arrested last week, is now charged with the murder of 70-year old Charles Noack. Last week Crow's sister, a neighbor of Noack's, called police out to Nemec Street after Noack's car went. That's when police found Noack dead on a bed.

Later two of Crow's friends who are brother talked to police. Court documents state brother number one received a text message from brother number two saying: "just stole a car with my homie", meaning Crow.

The brothers also told investigators Crow said, "I ain't going to lie to you I murdered this dude and I took his car."

Police say Crow confessed to the two brothers at brother number two's Weber Square Apartment, at the same time police were outside investigating Noack's missing car in the parking lot.

Both brothers then told police different stories about why and how Crow killed Noack.

Brother number one told police Crow strangled Noack with a water hose because Noack had threatened his sister.

While the brother two told detectives Crow "strangled Noack with a blanket".

Reportedly the brothers told detectives that Crow's sister told them "her brother(Crow)needed to get out of town and she had three hundred dollars."

Police have yet to say if strangulation played a roll in Noack's death. But according to the Nueces County Medical Examiner's Office Noack died from trauma to the head.

Police have not to release an motive for the killing.
