2 found dead in bedroom of house in Huntertown

– By Thursday afternoon, the yellow police tape that roped off the yard and wrapped around the cars and truck in the driveway still fluttered in the breeze.

A few kids rode their bicycles by, a woman played with two kids in a nearby garage and a sheriff’s reserve officer tasked with guarding the house took a seat in a wicker chair.

It was a quiet afternoon in a quiet Huntertown neighborhood, but inside the home at 12004 Wandering Way was a crime scene involving two dead bodies.

The bodies – those of a man and a woman – were found inside a bedroom of the Carroll Creek home about 9 a.m., according to the Allen County Sheriff’s Department.

Neither has been identified, and the causes of their deaths have not been released.

The sheriff’s department, however, is treating the deaths as suspicious.

The discovery of the bodies happened after the man had not shown up for work for a few days. A family member and co-worker went to the home and found the two dead, according to the sheriff’s department.

Nothing further is being released about what went on inside until the Allen County coroner completes autopsies on the man and woman, possibly today.
