LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) –  There are still many questions about a fire that killed a Lauderdale County man, woman and their nephew four months ago.

Hoping to give someone an incentive to come forward with information, the victims’ family is now offering a reward.

In the early morning hours of March 14, 2013, family members gathered outside the smoldering remains of the home Bobby and Sandy Brewer lived in on County Road 81.

The Brewers and their nephew, Bradley Adams, were all found dead in the home.

As the investigation by the State Fire Marshal’s office and Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office has progressed over the last few months, more questions have come up.

“There are still some unanswered questions and it’s an open investigation,” said Chris Connolly, Lauderdale County District Attorney. “We appreciate their willingness to put some money up to see if we can get some additional information about the case.”

According to Connolly, investigators ruled the fire arson in April.

And to help get some of the questions answered, the Brewer family has put up a reward of $10,000 to help find out who may have started the fire.

“Very tragic, it’s very tragic. You just don’t have that happen often,” said Connolly.  “I mean our heart goes out to the Brewer family, and I know that they have suffered a great loss and we want to get some answers for them.”

Connolly stresses the investigation is still open, and they will not rest until investigators are confident they know exactly what happened that morning.
