    30 miles apart.
    Very similar MOs--beaten, then burned.
    Both young females; Gibbs looked about 25 from her photo, though she was older.
    Similar personalities--trusting extroverts with no enemies.
    Killed on the same day, December 19th, 2014.

    I can't find any traces of Sarah Gibbs other than these articles, though. Desirae left a lot of traces on Facebook, but Sarah seemed to have been much more isolated. If anyone comes across info on Sarah Gibbs, please do post it here.

    Gibbs’ father described Sarah as a “high function autistic person” who was able to live on her own. He said she was very much into fitness and every day would walk from her house to the Y to exercise...

    Lt. Cindy Kilgore announced there is now a $10,000 cash reward available for information in this case and it will be paid anonymously.

    They say this is not a cold case but most leads have been exhausted. In fact, investigators have received fewer than five tips since it happened...

    "It was a cowardly act committed to a defenseless woman. It has got to be eating away at somebody's conscience," says Warsaw Police Detective Ryan Moore...

    Moore says Sara was dead before the fire started and while he won't share details about how she was murdered, Sarah's family says she was stabbed to death. Her parents believe whomever did this to Sarah that night would have had blood on them and smelled of smoke.

    Stabbing can indicate a personal motive.

    Did someone mistake her autism as aloofness or coldness and got mad? Did she have a boyfriend?

    Very sad case.
