Police warn of scams related to tragic teen’s death


The Noblesville Police Dept. would like to remind citizens to be cautious when deciding to donate to memorial funds advertised in the name of Aubrey Peters. Peters, 16, of Noblesville, was tragically shot and killed on Dec. 8 in the 8200 block of River Run Place in Noblesville.

“Since her death, our police department has received inquiries from citizens regarding the legitimacy of certain funds that have been setup in her name,” NPD Spokesman Lt. Bruce Barnes stated. “Our department has spoken with members of Aubrey’s family and the only fund that has been authorized and endorsed by the family is the Aubrey Peters Memorial Art Scholarship Fund.”

The fund is administered by the Noblesville School Corporation, 18025 River Rd., Noblesville 46062. For more information, contact Sharon Trisler at 773-3171. When making a donation, please include “for Aubrey Peters” on the memo line.
