Ash Rowell was a big guy with a huge personality who made millions selling craft beer. But with success came conflict -- and eventually murder.
It was around 7:30 p.m. on February 1, 2013. Ash and wife Lesli are home with their three children. The two oldest have friends over for a sleepover. Just out of the shower, Ash is wearing only sweatpants -- no shirt or shoes when he hears something at the front door
"Ash opened up the door ever so slightly, and he's shot directly in the chest from a fairly close range," said retired Houston Police Detective Brian Harris. "And the person runs off."
Ash's wife Lesli Rowell talks exclusively to Crime Watch Daily.
Lesli Rowell has contributed $10,000 toward the reward fund for information that leads to a successful conviction of the person or persons responsible for Ash's death.
Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact the Houston Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (713) 222-TIPS.
