INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Authorities have located a red 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in connection with the investigation of a triple murder on the city’s east side. Officers say a suspect is still at large.
A resident’s family member responded to a home in the 1800 block of Forsythia Drive near East 21st Street and Franklin Road shortly before 10 a.m. on a welfare check. A relative who lived at the home had not reported for work.
The front door to the two-story home in the neatly kept tree-lined neighborhood was open. The person found a male relative near the entry of the home with a fatal head wound. Sources tell FOX59 an adult male and an adult female were also found in the home.
One homicide detective told FOX59 that these murders were “not random,” indicating there was no forced entry into the home and the residents likely knew their assailant.
Neighbors told FOX59 that they often saw a red car owned by one of the victims parked in the driveway.
Residents say this community is very quiet and private and is not the scene of excessive police activity.
Neighbors tell us there were quite a few break-ins about two years ago, but they believe the suspect was caught. They say they’ve never seen a violent crime like this one. They have a neighborhood crime watch captain, and many of the neighbors know each other.
Two people FOX59 spoke with at the scene say they would often see one of the victims out mowing his lawn, and he was friendly.
