INDIANAPOLIS – The widow of a man shot to death earlier this month recalls her last moments with her husband.
Jennifer Trapuzzano is leaning on her parents and her brother Jared for comfort and strength. Gone is the joy of this newlywed couple expecting their first little girl they have already named Cecilia. Jennifer told the Daily Mail that her husband Nathan was so excited about becoming a father.
The night before he was killed, they went to McDonald’s for ice cream and then came home, according to the publication. They talked before going to bed that night and both said they loved each other.
Nathan had just changed his evening walks to morning walks so he could spend more time with Jennifer before baby Cecilia comes next month, the family told the Daily Mail. She says walking was always his time to pray and listen to Christian podcasts. The day he was killed was just his second morning walk.
On around 5:50 a.m. on Tuesday, April 1, officers arrived to investigate a shooting in the 3500 block of West 16th Street. Police found 24-year-old Nathan Trapuzzano suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach.
Indianapolis Metropolitan police rolled out their Incident Command Vehicle and put Trapuzzano’s picture up on the side, hoping someone would see it and report something that could help the case.
On Tuesday, April 8, police arrested Simeon Adams, 16. He is charged as an adult with murder (class A felony), attempted robbery (class A felony) and carrying a handgun without a license (class A misdemeanor).
