HE WAS SHOT TO DEATH IN HIS OWN HOME, WITH VERY FEW
CLUES LEFT BEHIND.

A BIG BUCKS REWARD AS THE VICTIM'S FAMILY DESPARATELY
SEARCHES FOR ANSWERS.
51;43 it would be a shame for somebody to want to
get paid for doing the right thing but i'm willing
to pay them for doing the right thing.somebody out
there knows something
I'M MELISSA LUCK, IN FOR NADINE TONIGHT.
THIRTY FOUR YEAR OLD CORY D.
FOWLER WAS MURDERED IN FEBRUARY...
MORE THAN A HALF YEAR LATER, NO ONE HAS BEEN ARRESTED.
BUT THAT ALL COULD CHANGE BECAUSE OF A NEW TEN THOUSAND
IN A KXLY FOUR EXCLUSIVE, KXLY FOUR'S JEFF HUMPHREY
IS LIVE AT THE MURDER SCENE WITH WHY FOWLER'S PARENTS
ARE OFFERING CASH FOR CLUES.
CORY FOWLER'S FOLKS DON'T THINK THIS WAS A ROBBERY
OR A DRUG RIP OR EVEN A RANDOM MURDER.
THEY BELIEVE FOWLER WAS EXECUTED BY HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND.
SO DO MAJOR CRIMES DETECTIVES.
AND NOW THE PARENTS ARE TRYING TO DRUM UP SOME NEW
EVIDENCE WITH TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.
CORY FOWLER WORKED OUT OF HIS APARTMENT SO NO ONE
KNOWS EXACTLY WHEN HE WAS KILLED.
WHEN HIS FATHER COULDN'T RAISE HIS SON ON THE PHONE,
DAN & PATTY FOWLER CAME OVER TO CHECK ON CORY IN PERSON.
DAN FOWLER/VICTIM'S FATHER 47;13 knocked on the door,
there was no answer.
checked the door knob it was unlocked.
we opened the door and saw him laying on the floor
CORY HAD BEEN SHOT TO DEATH WITH A 380 CALIBER PISTOL
FIRING A GERMAN MADE BRAND OF AMMUNITION CALLED ROTTWEIL.
HOWEVER HIS APARTMENT WASN'T RANSACKED.
IF THIS HAD BEEN A DEADLY HOME INVASION ROBBERY THE
KILLER WOULD HAVE TAKEN HIS COLLECTION OF GUITARS.
DAN 47;53 nothing was taken, in fact, on the shelf
not too far from him was my grandfather's pocket watch
THE FOWLERS THINK THEIR SON
WAS KILLED BY HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND.
THE COUPLE WAS BATTLING OVER CHILD VISITATION ISSUES.
48;49 PATTY FOWLER/VICTIM'S MOTHER cory was getting
, was coming up on his first unsupervised visit without
her there which would be just a couple days after
he was killed, just a couple days after 49;01
SHERIFF'S DETECTIVES SAY THE EX-GIRLFRIEND DOES NOT
HAVE AN ALIBI AND REFUSES TO BE FORMALLY INTERVIEWED
HER ATTORNEY DAVID PARTOVI HAS WARNED DEPUTIES NOT
TO ARREST HIS CLIENT BECAUSE THIS WOULD BE A SELF
IT'S A CIRCUMSTANTIAL CASE AND SO FAR, WITHOUT WITNESSES.
PATTY FOWLER/VICTIM'S MOTHER everybody knows she
she know she killed him but she's free 52;25 free
to enjoy her children.she's taken my granddaughter,
i can never see her..she's living, my son's not 52;38
SO THIS TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR REWARD IS NOT BEING OFFERED
BY THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE BUT RATHER THE FOWLERS.
IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS MURDER CALL CRIME
CHECK AT 456- TWENTY TWO THIRTY THREE.
MELISSA THE EX-GIRLFRIEND IS LISTED AS A PERSON OF
INTEREST IN THE CASE AND HAS BEEN THE TARGET OF NUMEROUS
BUT HER CELL PHONE NEVER GOT CLOSE TO THESE APARTMENTS
THE NIGHT OF THE MURDER AND DETECTIVES HAVE NOT BEEN
ABLE TO LOCATE THE MURDER WEAPON.
