Investigation underway after murder-suicide on Indy’s southeast side


INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating after two people were found dead on the city’s southeast side.

The IMPD said officers responded to the 7800 block of Tanza Road just after 10 a.m. Friday after family did not hear from the residents. Officers were able to enter the residence along with some family members.

When officers arrived, they found a man and woman with possible gunshot wounds. They were pronounced dead. Police later identified them as Savannah Blevins, 34, and Anthony Henderson Jr., 35.

Police say they believe this involved some sort of domestic dispute. The coroner’s office ruled Blevins’ death was a homicide, and Henderson died by suicide.

The IMPD says if anyone knows someone going through a domestic dispute, reach out to someone that can help them either by calling the police or finding some way to intervene.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 317-262-8477.
