CORPUS CHRISTI - There was a big break overnight in the case of an elderly man found dead in his apartment this week. Last night officers arrested 32-year-old Jacob Crow who's wanted for the theft of 71-year-old Charles Noack's car.
As of this morning, Crow is only named as a suspect in the theft of the victim's car.
An arrest affidavit issued in the case states Crow stayed with Noack at his apartment on Nemec Street. A woman told officers she came to check on Noack late Tuesday. She first became concerned when she noticed all his windows and doors were closed, an unusual sight for the apartment.
Noack was found dead in his home. The woman who found him told police she was concerned her own brother, Jacob Crow, may have something to do with Noack's death.
According to the sister, Jacob said he came back to the apartment to find his roommate already dead. She claims he admitted to taking the man's car because he did not like him.
Police were able to find the victim's abandoned Ford Escort on Tuesday afternoon outside an apartment complex on Weber Road.
"Charlie was a good ol kind hearted guy. the kid didn't have any place to live, i guess at the time so he said well come out and stay with me. He was just a kind hearted old dude, you know?" Ron Rains told us about his friend.
So far, the medical examiner's office has not released a cause of death in this case.
