Coroner IDs woman found dead in homicide on far west side

UPDATE: The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the victim of a homicide on the city’s west side as 54-year-old Donna Hawes.

Hawes died from multiple gunshot wounds, the coroner’s office said.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A woman was found dead Sunday with what police called apparent trauma, and her death is being treated as a homicide.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were called to the 1000 block of Hardin Boulevard — that’s near Interstate 465 and West Washington Street — just after 1 p.m. Sunday on a report of a death investigation.

They arrived to find a woman with apparent trauma, and medical personnel pronounced her dead at the scene.

No additional information about the identity of the woman, the cause of her death or a potential suspect was immediately provided by police.

This story has been corrected to reflect the victim’s last name is Hawes, not Howes as previously reported by the coroner’s office.
