Burbank police release suspect in woman's murder, arrest new suspect

BURBANK, Calif. (KABC) -- Burbank police released a 49-year-old man Tuesday whom they arrested on Monday in connection to the murder of a woman and announced the arrest of a new suspect.

Brian Thomas Lowe was arrested Monday after a woman was found dead inside a bedroom in his home in the 1900 block of Richard Street shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday.

"Based on conflicting statements, information that he was less than forthcoming with, and an inconsistent sequence of events, we felt that Lowe played a part in the murder of the female," Burbank police said in a statement.

At approximately 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, Burbank police arrested Timothy Aguilar Andrade, 28, of Hesperia. Based on the statements Andrade provided, Burbank police now believe Lowe was not involved in the murder. Andrade provided Burbank police with information that led investigators to what is believed to be the knife used in the murder.

Andrade is being held in lieu of $1.16 million bail.

The victim's name was not released pending notification of kin.
