MEMPHIS-The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has identified the man responsible for the death of a Chester County woman.

On Saturday, March 29th, deputies with the Chester County Sheriff’s Department discovered the body of 71-year-old Martha J. Crowe inside her residence on Highway 22A South in Jacks Creek. Evidence at the scene revealed her death was a homicide.

At the request of District Attorney General Jerry Woodall, the TBI joined the investigation Saturday. Special agents and deputies from Chester County soon determined Alex Schewe, 26, was a person of interest in the case.

On Sunday, March 30th, around Noon, investigators approached Schewe’s home on Highway 22A in an attempt to speak with him, but were unable to reach him. Shortly thereafter, investigators discovered Schewe took his own life inside his home.

Evidence collected in Crowe’s residence by the TBI’s Violent Crime Response Team has determined Schewe was responsible for Crowe’s murder. However, the investigation remains ongoing, to determine whether any other individuals might have played a part in the crime. The TBI urges anyone with information to call 1-800-TBI-FIND.
