Reward offered for information in the death of 74-year-old Niles woman

Posted: Updated:
NILES, Ohio -

Niles police and Crime Stoppers team up to announce a $10,000 reward for information in the death of a 74-year-old Niles woman last October. 

Tuesday morning police announced that they have persons of interest in the case, but are looking for more information, which could possibly lead to charges and an arrest. 

"We're hoping that this incentive may provide one small bit of information that would help solidify the case," Capt. John Marshall said, Niles police department.

Arlene Frasca was killed in October 2016 when two armed intruders reportedly forced their way into the home she shared with her husband. 

Her husband, Angelo Frasca, told police that two armed men barged their way into the couple's Hiram Street home and held them at gunpoint. Niles police have previously said they don't believe the crime was a random act of violence.

Police told 21 News that the suspects were looking for a safe. But they have not disclosed how much money was inside the safe.

Officials have been searching for information in reference to a car that was spotted in the neighborhood and is believed to be connected. 

Niles police released a surveillance image of an unidentified sedan that police are confident contained the suspects who played a role in Frasca's death.

Detectives say that interviews have helped them narrow the field of suspects in the case, but they are looking for more information to solidify the case. 

Tips can be called into the Youngstown Crime Stoppers at 330-746-CLUE.
