INDIANA – Three people found dead in a Newton County home on Sunday night were victims of homicide, a northern Indiana coroner said.
Police found two men and one woman dead about 8 p.m. Sunday in the community of Sumava Resorts, Newton County Coroner Scott McCord said Monday morning. All were victims of trauma and there was “no suicide associated with this,” McCord said. The Newton County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to an email seeking information.
McCord said an officer responding to a report of a man bleeding found a 20-year-old man dead in the home. The officer then found two more people dead, a 23-year-old man and a woman in her 30s, in an adjacent bedroom.
McCord said autopsies are scheduled Tuesday morning on the three victims.
