LENAWEE COUNTY, MI More than 30 years ago, two 17-year-old boys were locked inside a bathroom and burned alive in a Lenawee County farmhouse. David Ray Cole and Timothy Paul Fowler's May 10, 1982, deaths were ruled a homicide and their case remains unsolved. Now, Crime Stoppers seek tips in the case as they report police believe there are people in Lenawee and Monroe counties who "have knowledge of who is responsible." Lenawee County Sheriff's Capt. Jeff Ewald said during a phone interview that a detective has been assigned to the case and has been working on it a couple of months. He said the family had been in contact with the department, but that there were no new leads or evidence to report. The captain said since the case was pre-computer, it required the detective to computerize and go over everything again. Ewald said he has made a lot of contact regarding the case. Police ruled David, who lived in the 5118 Pieh Highway residence, and Timothy were herded into the bathroom of the rural farmhouse and locked inside. "Gasoline was splashed in front of the bathroom door and set afire," a March 20, 1983 Citizen Patriot article reads. "Ordered into the windowless bathroom by their assailants, the boys soon realized their danger as smoke seeped under the door, the room's only exit. One tried to survive by filling the bathtub with water. "His body was found with the fiberglass tub melted around him." A five-gallon gasoline can, kept in the barn, was found along with the bodies of the boys in the rubble from the home.
