That’s in a residential area on the city’s south side west of State Road 135 and between West Southport and West Stop 11 roads.

When officers arrived to the scene they found two unresponsive individuals. One individual was pronounced dead. The second person was treated at the scene and released.

Police have not said how the person died but that they suffered “undisclosed trauma to the body.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317.262.8477 or (TIPS).
