Entry Description

Vigo County—Indiana State Police detectives from the Putnamville Post continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the discovery of two bodies found under a private lane bridge at 7400 West Pennington Road in northwestern Vigo County. The bodies of a man and a woman were discovered around 10:00pm Saturday, October 19, 2013 by persons riding all terrain vehicles in the area.

Vigo County Coroner Dr. Susan Amos has released some preliminary findings after autopsies were performed on the victims.

The cause of death for the female was strangulation with the manner of death listed as homicide.

The cause of death for the male is pending with the manner of death pending as well. There were no physical injuries consistent with causing his death. Toxicology results are pending on both and could take two to four weeks.

Positive identification of the victims has not been made. The coroner’s office and ISP investigators continue their efforts in positively identifying the deceased. Fingerprint identification will be attempted first and could have positive results in a couple of days. If no match is found, DNA testing will be utilized and could take up to a month.

At this time, ISP investigators have no evidence to suggest that anyone other than the deceased male caused the death of the female and investigators believe there is no danger to the public from an outside suspect. However, the investigation is ongoing.

More information will be released as it becomes available…

Direct questions about the autopsy to Vigo County Coroner Dr. Susan Amos as 812-232-2936.

Questions about the ISP investigation should be directed to ISP Sergeant Joe Watts.
