Evidence revealed both a forced entry into her home and signs of a struggle. Surveillance footage showed that the suspect was a white male who was wearing black clothing. Harwick had communicated concerns about an ex, whom she had taken out a restraining order on. Unfortunately, the order ended two weeks ago. Police officers arrested Gareth Pursehouse on Saturday, and he was booked for her murder.
