Fishermen find man’s body along creek in south Indy
INDIANAPOLIS – A group of fishermen in Indianapolis make a deadly discovery on the city’s south side.
Police say the fishermen found a man’s body dead along a creek behind an apartment complex near Highway 31 and Southport road.
Police say Kobi Walden, 31, died from multiple gunshot wounds, and the case is being investigated as a homicide.
“I heard 6 or 7 rounds and thought it was fireworks, but then thought no that’s guns,” said neighbor Sarah McCann.
Hearing that gunfire, neighbors called 911, but police who showed up the apartment complex last night were not able to find a victim.
“Officers did respond to a shots fired run last night, but didn’t find anything, so we’re trying to figure out all that information,” said McCann.
Police say the body had been tucked away in the woods and was not easy to see.
“I’ve never been near anything like this. It’s a little bit scary,” said McCann.
Sarah has only lived in the complex since March and says the death is alarming. Still, everyone knows crime can happen anywhere and anytime.
“This is an area that usually involves domestic calls, but nothing too violent, but again no area is immune so we’re trying to figure out what happened so we can address it,” said Hamer.
Police do not have any suspects in custody at this time.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 or (TIPS).
