INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Metropolitan Police are looking for Seantel Marsden, 41, for questioning in connection with a fatal crash in the Castleton area early Saturday morning.

Rashshaad Artis, 29, was killed and his girlfriend, Shanntel Lewis, 33, was injured when he car crashed as she sought to escape her ex-boyfriend.

Lewis told police that Marsden followed her from a northeast side home late Friday night to the 6000 block of East 82nd Street.

Lewis was unsure if Marsden’s pick-up truck struck her car or she lost control of her vehicle as she careened across a median barrier and struck another car head-on.

Kyle Gertz, 31, and Tara Bain, 40, were injured. Bain’s unborn child was not injured. Artis died in the crash and Lewis was injured.

Homicide detectives tell Fox 59 News that Marsden is not a suspect at this time but is wanted for questioning.

In June, 2011, Lewis received a protective order against Marsden after she told police he broke into her home.

Several months later, Marsden was stopped in the 4500 block of Allisonville Road as another ex-girlfriend told police he was chasing her down in his vehicle.

IMPD recovered a gun from Marsden’s vehicle at the time.

Investigators located Marsden’s vehicle near 38th & Washington Blvd. It was towed and processed by police. Marsden was not with the truck when it was located.

Police tell Fox59 there is not an active warrant for Marsden but they are looking for him.

    "Rashshaad Artis, 29, was killed and his girlfriend, Shanntel Lewis, 33, was injured when he car crashed as she sought to escape her ex-boyfriend."

    Journalism, as it is, has taken a back seat to bloggers who are nothing more than graphitti artists on the internet.

    So apparently, there were "3" vehicles involved in this? Took them long enough to get the news out there. Sounds like a real nice guy. Already been in trouble for a similar thing before. His current wife might want to be careful & watch her back!! Won't be long, he'll be doing life in prison for killing a woman. Another one of those "Real Men" out there I guess. Got to show how tough they are by abusing women.

    • You know it

      Didn't nobody abuse that bitch she try to use people n use them for all they got you can play with people feeling n heart she sleep around she is a hoe

        Hoe is a garden tool. HO is what you mean. You are ignorant. Maybe pick up a book, or take a class and pay attention to the teacher.

      Yeah, John, you gotta wonder why people are too dumb to just walk away & count their blessings that they didn't marry the ex! Divorce and pulling stupid stunts to get even with someone who doesn't want you is always more costly than just walking away & getting on with your own life!

      Women, take a good look at this guy, & if he tries to take interest in you, RUN!!! Do not get mixed up with him; he sounds like trouble.

        You are also ignorant. You sound as stupid as a box of rocks. Hoe is a garden tool… "Ho" is short for whore. Since you are probably one too, get it right.

      • anon

        They're all ignorant, you can't educate people who didn't learn how to read, write, spell, or use upper & lowercase letters and punctuation.
