INDIANAPOLIS -- Two people were found dead in an apparent homicide-suicide on Indianapolis' east side late Saturday afternoon after a passerby noticed a car parked in front of a home with someone inside for two days.
Police were called to the home in the 5100 block of East Tabor Street at about 4:30 p.m. after the passerby went to the car and found that the man inside was dead and that a gun was with him.
Officers said it appeared that the man inside, identified as Scott Clark, 48, of Indianapolis, had shot himself. When they went in the house, they found Jennifer Miller, 18, of Indianapolis, dead in a bedroom.
"There's a good possibility it happened yesterday," said Indianapolis Metro police Sgt. Paul Thompson. "The preliminary information was the car was in the same position yesterday or yesterday evening, so we're still working on those details."
A neighbor told 6News that lights inside the home had been on for two days and that the man had lived in the home for about two months.
