Sheriff says some cameras weren't recording when homicide happened across the street

Posted: Updated:

We are learning some surveillance cameras that could have captured evidence in a homicide case were not recording at the time of the crime. 

Jonathan Wieseler was found dead at Lederman Bail Bonds in Iowa City in April, nearly three months later police have not released a suspect in the crime. 

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office and jail sit across the street from Lederman Bail Bonds and the sheriff's office has cameras on the front of their building. 

We counted three cameras on the front of the Johnson County Sheriff's Office but police would not say which cameras were recording at the time of the crime and which were not. 

Iowa City Police do confirm they have some video from the incident. 
     "You know I'm willing to tell you we do have video from the sheriff's office but I'm not able to share where the video came from or the contents of the video," says Lt. Zachary Diersen. 

After the homicide happened police say Lederman Bail Bonds added surveillance cameras of their own. 

Police are continuing to review the footage they do have in hopes of solving the crime. 
"We're continuing to follow-up on the leads that we have," says Diersen. 

Lederman Bail Bonds is offering a $10,000 cash reward for any information that would lead to an arrest in this case. 

Crime Stoppers is also offering an award of up to $1,000. 
If you know anything please call the Iowa City Police Department or Iowa City Area Crime Stoppers.
