SNYDER TOWNSHIP, JEFFERSON COUNTY - James and Victoria Shugar were believed to have been killed April 10th, though they weren't found until April 12th. Police said that Steven Rebert was developed as a suspect early in the investigation thanks to some neighbors of the couple.
On March 3rd, a month before the murders, a woman called police to report a suspicious vehicle parked along Coal Tipple Road, where the Shugars lived. It turned out the license plate was registered to Rebert.
Then on April 12th, when the Shugars' bodies were found, a different neighbor told investigators at the scene they also saw a suspicious man in a car with the same description given to police earlier.
On April 29th, police searched Rebert's home. That day, they said, he denied being in Brockway on April 10th, however police claim surveillance video from the Brockway Sheetz proved otherwise.
On May 5th, police searched Rebert's car and seized his boots and the shirt that they believe he was wearing in the surveillance video.
On May 19th, they took his computer to search. They discovered he looked up news of the double murder numerous times, including 4 visits to articles about the murders on this website.
On May 27th, police said DNA on Rebert's boots came back as a match for James Shugar.
June 11th, Rebert was charged in the killings.
