(BEDFORD, IN) - A woman has been arrested by Bedford Police for a murder taking place in an apartment complex in Bedford.
According to a press release from the Bedford Police Department, police were called to the 3300 block of Michael Avenue at the Ridgewood Apartment Complex to discover a man laying in a pool of blood in the street.
After questioning 38-year-old Susan Renee May at the scene, police transported and later arrested May for the death of the man.
Police say that the victim of the shooting, 35-year-old Jason Lee Joy from Lawrence County and Susan May from Hendricks County had been engaged in a prior relationship.
Both May and Joy were homeless and had been staying at a friend's apartment at the time of the shooting.
Jason Joy is suspected to have died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds from a 9mm handgun while he was working on a car.
He was found lying face down in the street when police arrived.
One nearby resident reportedly looked out her window following the sound of gunshots to see what the commotion was when, she stated she saw the victim fall to the ground.
The witness then said that after the man fell to the ground, a woman walked up to his body and fired 5 additional bullets into the man.
The scene of the crime had previously been marked off for a couple of hours during the investigation; as of 9:00PM last night the scene had be re-opened.

So they may not be forgotten...
News articles disappear after time, sometimes within weeks. This website won't disappear. It was brought about because of my absolute disgust with April Will's death in Indianapolis. After the shock wore off, I decided to make sure nobody would forget the victims. Feel free to contact me with victims to add if they have not been added yet. I am working at adding victims for the past several years, at least back to 2004. Beyond that, it is difficult to find information. I am adding any domestic violence death in Indiana (however I am not listing perpetrators that died as a result of murder-suicide).
I have done my best to try and find pictures of all the dear victims so they will not be forgotten. If not available, a burning candle or angel is placed instead. If you have a picture of one of the victims you'd like to share, please contact me at the email address below. Thank you.
