IMPD believe teen was victim of bail bondsman
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police said late Wednesday a body found on the northeast side of Indianapolis Monday was identified as a teenager. Police believe he was killed by a bail bondsman on Christmas Eve.
The body was found near 34th Street and Shadeland Avenue in Indianapolis late Monday night.
Police say the body was that of 15-year-old Timmee Jackson. Jackson and 16-year-old Satori Dionne Williams were murdered by Kevin Watkins, police believe.
Police said Jackson was identified by his fingerprints. A cause of death hasn’t been released, but it is considered a homicide.
Investigators searched the surrounding area but no other bodies were discovered. Williams’ body has yet to be found.
Police found blood, pieces of bone and other human matter at Watkins’ home, his bail bonds business and in his SUV. Detectives also found bloody clothing that matched what the teens were last seen wearing. Prosecutors say Watkins believed Dionne had broken into his home.
Watkins is also charged with criminal confinement and impersonation of a public servant. Both are felonies.
According to court documents, Watkins handcuffed a teen on Dec. 20 and questioned him about breaking into his house.
During Watkins’ first court appearance, a fight broke out in the hallway outside the courtroom. No one was arrested.
He is due in court for a pretrial hearing on April 14.
