Investigators in the February murder of a man known as Pastor Jack have identified a third suspect.

Silent Witness needs the public’s help finding her.

Pastor Jack, whose real name was John Moriarty, was shot to death during a home break-in near 20th Avenue and Van Buren Street. Moriarty had been dedicated to helping others turn their lives around.

Richard Garcia credits his sobriety to Pastor Jack.

"He had a heart for people who were lost in the world because he himself came from those roots," Garcia said.

Police arrested Jamie Sapien and Jesse Monroy for the brutal crime.

Witnesses said the suspects appeared to be high on when they broke into the pastor's home, demanded money and shot him.

Police said they do have enough to arrest a third suspect, Nichole "Nikki" Coble, for homicide.

The suspect, 35, is described as white. She is about 5’6” tall and weighs 150 pounds.  Coble has brown hair and blue eyes. She goes by the name Nikki.

People with any knowledge of their whereabouts are asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO. The public can also call Silent Witness detectives toll-free at 1-800-343-TIPS. Your call will remain anonymous.
