New info in 2015 quadruple homicide leads to arrest of 36-year-old man

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A 36-year-old in a state prison was charged Wednesday with four counts of murder in connection to the March 2015 shooting deaths of three woman and a man on the near-northeast side. 

Nicholas Dunn has been charged in connection to the 2015 shooting deaths of Terry Bettis, 41,  Sherri Taylor, 48, Tiara Turner, 32, and Davon Whitlock, 18, said a news release from the Marion County Prosecutor's Office. 

"New information recently brought forward provided investigators with evidence alleging Dunn to be responsible for the unsolved murders," the release said.

The four victims were found in the front room of a home in the 3100 block of North Harding Street on March 24, 2015. A family member had discovered the bodies and called Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

The release said court documents accuse Dunn of entering the home in the morning hours and holding the three women at gunpoint. "It is believed that Dunn had the three female victims lure Whitlock, who was parked outside, into the home. Subsequently, all four victims were shot and killed, each found to have suffered multiple gunshot wounds," the release said. 

Dunn faces a firearm charge along with the four murder charges.

Dunn had a projected release date of Jan. 30 from the Plainfield Correctional Facility, according to online state prison records. Dunn was in prison for unlawful firearm possession by a serious felon. He'd been previously sentenced for two incidents of battery.
