CORPUS CHRISTI - A man accused of stealing a car from an elderly man found dead this week was arrested Wednesday night. He's now being called a suspect in the death.
32-year old Jacob Alan Crow had been living with the elderly victim. At this point, all he's been charged with is the unauthorized use of the victim's car.
Newly obtained documents shed new light on the events that unfolded earlier in the week on the 2400 block of Nemec Street. Police arrived at Charles Noack's apartment around 9 p.m Tuesday night after receiving a call to check on the welfare of 70-year old Noack when neighbors reported the man's car missing.
Court documents state it was Crow's sister, Noack's neighbor, who told police something was wrong when Noack's car was missing.
Inside the apartment police found Noack dead on his bed.
In a statement made to police Crow's sister says her "brother was a heavy drug user, and alcoholic and she was afraid that he might be involved in the victim's death."
She also told police after talking to her brother Wednesday, he told her Noack was "already dead on the bed" Monday night when he came home.
The court documents say it was at that time Crow took the keys to Noack's 2003 Ford Escort because "he didn't like the victim".
Police recovered the car Wednesday afternoon abandoned in the parking lot at the Weber Square apartments.
As for Charles Noack's cause of death, the Medical Examiner office says they are waiting for toxicology results before making a determination.
Crow is still jailed his bond has been set at $50,000.
