Vehicle found in Terre Haute; seat, blood, teeth were left in Noblesville

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — The mystery over a vehicle seat found with blood and teeth Tuesday in a store’s parking lot got even more mysterious Thursday after the vehicle was found in Terre Haute. 

About 9:06 p.m. Tuesday, police found a driver- or passenger-side seat believed to be from a Jeep Wrangler in the parking lot of the Lowe’s Home Improvement at 16800 Mercantile Blvd. That’s in the Stoney Creek Commons shopping plaza. 

Police said there was blood on the seat and several adult teeth on and near it.

On Thursday night, police provided new information: They found the vehicle and determined it was involved in a suicide investigation in January in Pennsylvania. 

WTWO, a sister TV station of News 8, said the white vehicle was found Thursday at a Thornton’s gas station in Terre Haute near the Interstate 70 interchange at State Road 641. 

The vehicle later was sold to “a 3rd party without any prior knowledge of the incident,” police said in an updated news release. Police also said they found the new owner Thursday.

No additional details were immediately known. 

Anyone with information on what may have happened is asked to contact Noblesville Police Department Detective Sgt. Tim Hendricks at (317) 776-6371 or 


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.
