Reward offered for information leading to arrest after 2 women were murdered in Hobart apartment

A $5,000 reward is being offered to find the person responsible for a double homicide that occurred in Hobart, Indiana last November.

The women were killed in the early morning hours of Nov. 3, 2022.

Police believe 20-year-old Destiny Jackson and her partner, 19-year-old Nazirah Muhammad, were sleeping when they were brutally murdered in an apartment on Ruta Drive. Police believe the suspect or suspects used a table to hoist themselves onto the women’s second-floor balcony. Then, they entered through an unlocked sliding glass patio door.

The two were fatally shot.


While police wait for the results of forensic evidence testing and continue to investigate, a community activist is offering a reward for any information that leads to an arrest. 

"During this investigation, officers interviewed have interviewed several witnesses and also individuals who were last in contact with Destiny and Nazirah," Hobart Police Captain James Gonzalez said. "They have conducted several search warrants and subpoenas for cell phone data and social media accounts, and have rifled and sifted through hundreds of pages of information. Through this information, they have been able to establish a foundation of evidence. There is additional laboratory results our investigators are still waiting for which could also potentially build upon their current foundation."
