Reward offered for missing guest book of Harrison Twp. stabbing victim

Published: Friday, June 22, 2018 @ 1:50 AM

The family of Amber Hoover, who was found with multiple stab wounds behind a Harrison Twp. home last week, are offering a reward for anyone with information on the whereabouts of the guest book that is missing from her funeral.

RELATED: No arrest in fatal stabbing of woman found behind Harrison Twp. home

Hoover, 42, was found stabbed behind a residence on Embury Park Road on June 10, and was pronounced dead at Grandview Medical Center.  The coroner's office ruled the incident a homicide and said Hoover died of multiple stab wounds. 

Hoover’s mother and daughter, who are still mourning the loss, are now focused on finding the missing guest book.

“We absolutely don’t care who has it or why you have it”, said Kelsey Jewett, Hoover’s daughter. “If you have it, we just want it back”.

They are not accusing anyone of stealing the book and are aware it could have simply been misplaced, as there were plenty of visitors at Hoover’s funeral last week. 

“That’s our one last memory to speak of Amber”, said Theresa Jones, Hoover’s mother.

According to a Montgomery County Sheriff's incident report, deputies found two witnesses and a possible suspect when her body was found. 

Sheriff's investigators know who fatally stabbed Hoover, but they have not arrested the person. 

Anyone willing to come forward with the guest book are urged to contact the family directly or the funeral home.
