Waiting Game In Frank Crash Homicide Investigation

The Frank Crash homicide investigation has come to a waiting game.

The 76-year-old Greenville business man was found in his home on July 24, 2013 by one of his daughters.  Crash’s death was caused by more than 70 stab wounds. 

District Attorney Robert Kochems has stated that the investigation is still underway, with police conducting interviews with leads and waiting for the lab results. 

Several blood samples along with other evidence collected were sent to the Pennsylvania State Police crime lab in Erie for DNA testing, chemical analysis, and fingerprints. 

Potential evidence was collected from Crash’s house and the home of another one of his daughters, Susan Brenneman.  Police found a bloody shirt thrown in an outside garbage container at Brenneman’s residence.

Kochems stated in a release shortly after the incident that the testing could potentially take over three months to evaluate even though the evidence is listed as priority. 

A 3.5 carat diamond ring was stolen the night Crash was murdered and Mercer County Crime Stoppers have issued a reward for the ring, as well as a reward for information leading to a conviction in the case.
