Preston Hollow lawyer Ira Tobolowsky, 68, was found dead after a suspicious house fire at his home in the 7400 block of Kenshire Lane on Friday, May 13.

The fire is still under investigation by Dallas police homicide detectives and Dallas Fire-Rescue arson detectives, according to NBC-5. The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office told NBC that it may take weeks to conclusively determine cause of death.

The weekend following the fire, Dallas County Sheriff’s Office deputies patrolled the home of Judge Eric V. Moyé, who’d been presiding over a civil case Tobolowsky was involved in, according to The Dallas Morning News. The judge later recused himself from the case.

The DMN and NBC sat down with Tobolowsky’s three sons on Friday, May 20. The brothers shared their memories of him and asked that anyone who knows anything come forward. You can read his obituary here.

PROSPER — With the season on the line, the unlikeliest combination of players that propelled Jesuit past Highland Park on Saturday.

Seldom-used pitcher Heath VanKirk pitched six strong innings allowing just four hits, and Will Guzman went 3-for-3 with two runs batted in as the Rangers beat HP 3-2 to win a tightly contested Class 6A Region II quarterfinal series.

Jesuit, which eliminated the Scots in the third round for the second straight year, advances to face another rematch against Conroe Oak Ridge in the regional semifinals next weekend.

Facing elimination and one of the top pitchers in the state, Highland Park showed it wasn’t finished yet.

The resilient Scots did just enough against Jesuit’s Kyle Muller to force extra innings, then surged to a 4-2 victory in eight innings to even up a Class 6A Region II quarterfinal series on Friday.

After each team won on the other’s home field the series will shift to a neutral site for a third and deciding game at noon Saturday in Prosper.

“These guys didn’t want the season to end just yet,” said HP head coach Travis Yoder. “We went up there swinging, we did our jobs, and we executed when we needed to.”

Bring Back the Brass This Summer

0

As you freshen up your home for summer, consider bringing these elements back into your home and pay tribute to the old and the new.

Brass is Back
Be careful, as this is not the shiny brass of the ‘80s, but a warm satin brass. Pair this beautiful finish with the Calcutta and Carrera marbles that are so popular in today’s bathrooms and kitchens. Mixing cool gray finishes with warm gold and brass tones makes a beautiful statement. Another way to pull in brass is with light fixtures, cabinet hardware, wall accents, and fireplace accessories.

Exterior interiors
We are seeing a huge resurgence in materials that are typically used on the exterior of homes or commercial buildings being used in interiors. Instead of staining your concrete floors to look like leather or applying a dark stain as in the past, add simple clear sealers and let the beauty of unfinished surfaces become finished.

Exposed
The use of exposed structure has made its way into residential design primarily through the surge of converting industrial spaces into apartments and town homes. Removing the ceiling gives the illusion of a soaring structure, open spaces, and clean lines.

Amid all the noise in the crowd, Jesuit lefthander Jacob Palisch kept the Highland Park bats silent.

Palisch fired a no-hitter and struck out 15 Highland Park batters as the Rangers beat the Scots 4-0 in Game 1 a Class 6A Region II quarterfinal series on Thursday at Scotland Yard.

Palisch, a junior who has verbally committed to Stanford, allowed just one baserunner, and that came on a fifth-inning walk to Turner Rejebian.

“What he did is almost unthinkable,” said Jesuit head coach Brian Jones. “He struck out the first 12 he faced against a very strong Highland Park team. To say the least, he was dialed in tonight.”
