Police ask for help to find suspect, solve murder

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Police are asking for help to find a man who they said shot and killed a man right in front of the victim’s mother.

Police said 29-year-old Robert Lasley is a known criminal and that he has been convicted of violent crimes in the past.

Betty Killebrew’s 30-year old-son Michael, was shot and killed right in front of her.

The scene still plays out over and over in her mind.

“I saw the flashes from the gun, and I heard the shots and I saw Michael fall to the ground,” Killebrew said.

It happened in December 2015. Michael was taken to the hospital and at one point it looked like he would live.

But weeks later his wounds were too extensive, and on Jan. 5 Michael lost his battle.

“You know, I often told him that I loved him. Often,” Betty quipped. “And I miss him very much, he didn’t deserve what happened to him. He didn’t deserve it at all.”

Betty said she’s not sure why her son was killed. Michael was one of five children. He was a father to a little girl and worked several jobs.

“He was a good dad, he loved his daughter, his daughter loved him. He was a good son, he always came back to see us. Out of all the kids he was the only one that was here all the time,” Killebrew said.

Police are asking for your help with this case. If you know where Robert Lasley is call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.


How to make Apple Pie Tacos

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s dessert … in a taco shell!

Apple Pie Tacos are easy, delicious, and kids love them! 

Apple Pie Tacos

9 soft street-taco shells (see note below)
2 tablespoons raw sugar 
1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided 
5 ROCKIT® apples, skin left on and diced
2 tablespoon raw honey 
1 tablespoon lemon juice 
2 teaspoons cornstarch 
1/4 cup water, plus more
coconut whipped cream 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a plate, sprinkle raw sugar and cinnamon. Gently mix the two together. Spray both sides of the soft taco shells with nonstick cooking spray, then lightly dip both sides in the cinnamon mixture. 
2. Flip a muffin tin over. Place each cinnamon-coated soft taco shell between each of the muffin tins, so that the muffin-tin humps help the taco shell stay in place and formed. Place in the the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. 
3. To make apple filling, combine chopped apples, honey, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir cornstarch into the 1/4 cup water and add to the saucepan. Heat on medium for about 10 minutes until apples are completely softened and gooey-thick. You may need to add more water — about another 1/4 cup — as the apples cook to create a sauce-like mixture. 
4. Spoon the apple filling into each of the taco shells. Top with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle cinnamon, or a little granola.  Enjoy immediately!

Note: A tortilla that’s about 3-4 inches across works great. If you need to, you can take a larger wheat tortilla, and cookie-cut it using a 3-4 inch small bowl.
