• Family hopes for answers in two-year-old homicide investigation

    By: Natalie Pasquarella


    STATESVILLE, N.C. - Two years have passed and there has still been no arrest in a local father's homicide.

    Joey Brewer was gunned down in the parking lot of a Statesville apartment complex in 2011.

    Desperate for answers, his family is taking action to fight for justice in their son's case.

    Robin and Tony Brewer are so determined to find their son’s killer they put up this billboard in Statesville to let the public know they've raised the reward for information leading to an arrest from $12,000 to $20,000.

    Brewer was a father of three, business owner and a little league coach.

    He was found shot to death inside his car in September of 2011.

    The Brewers said they are frustrated with the answers they're getting from Statesville police.

    "They say it's still an ongoing case, and it's very active," said Tony Brewer, father of Joey Brewer. "It's been two years, promises, promises, promise."

    The Statesville police chief said Wednesday he understands the family's frustrations but wants them to know his officers are actively investigating and they've been working with other local agencies.

    The case is still open and ongoing, and authorities are still seeking any information from the public regarding the case.
