PHOENIX - Silent Witness is now offering up to $10,000 for tips leading to an arrest in a triple murder case in Phoenix. Two women were strangled in their home two years ago. One of the victims was pregnant.
Nicole Glass and Melissa Mason, both 27 years old, were found dead on December 3, 2010. Mason was pregnant. They lived in Glass' home in the 4200 block of Cambridge Avenue in Phoenix. That's near 40th Street and Thomas.
Detectives said the women were choked to death. There were no signs of forced entry, according to past police reports. The murders could've occurred anytime between December 2, 2010 at 8 p.m. and December 3, 2010 at 12:20 p.m.
It's possible that the women let their killer(s) in, said Sgt. Darren Burch with Silent Witness. Choking a person to death might indicate that this was a personal crime, Burch said.
Rachel Glass, Nicole's mother, said the home was sold and the realtors, who helped in the transaction, donated their commission to Silent Witness.
Glass hopes that the money will encourage someone to come forward and bring the families some closure and justice.
"(We're) devastated," she said. "She was my pal. Your firstborn teaches you how to be a mom. I miss her everyday," she said.
Detectives say they have exhausted their leads and are looking to the public for help. If you know anything, call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
