Sonya Tuck and Trey Gilbert

2003 Investigator of the Year - Trey Gilbert

This investigation began with the tragic death of Terre Haute Fire Department's Captain Ralph Stott when a cinder block wall collapsed on him during firefighting operations. Terre Haute Police Detective Cpl. Trey Gilbert led the investigation and ultimately ruled that the cause of the fire was arson. Additionally, Trey developed a suspect that has been arrested for the fire at North 25th St., resulting in the death of Capt. Stott.

Everyone in Chapter 14 congratulates Trey for a job well done. We also extend our condolences to the Terre Haute Fire Department and the family of Capt Ralph Stott. Trey's dedication to this case and his career should be an inspiration to all of us. Thank you for a job well done.
