INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Dec. 3, 2015)– Police made an arrest in a double murder that took place on the east side last weekend.
Eric Horton, 22, was taken into custody in Urbana, Illinois.
India Barnes, 34, and Tomika “Fudge” Mack, 34, were found dead in a home in the 4100 block of East New York Street on November 28. Another resident in the home discovered their bodies.
Family and friends held a memorial in front of the home Thursday night. The family says although one arrest has been made, they believe more people are out there who can offer information to police.
“But everybody’s afraid to talk until it happens to them. And see this hurt I have it’s a hurt you can’t describe. Tomika was my baby,” said mother, Marthelma Staley.
Staley says her daughter only lived in the home for three days before the shooting happened. She wants answers about her daughter’s final hours.
“Tomika said something was wrong at 7:23 police was called at 10:20. What happened to my child in those three hours,” said Staley.
Several residents in the two-story house were questioned for hours by detectives, but no arrests were made.
The investigation is ongoing.
