    IN - Sgt. James Vester, 32, killed in Craigslist robbery, Indianapolis, 4 Dec 2013

    Police suspect that the slaying happened during an attempted robbery and that two suspects fled in an unknown vehicle. Police did not have a description of the suspects.

    Detectives said they believed robbery was the motive, but they were still investigating.

    Vester did not live at the apartment complex, but sources confirmed to RTV6 the victim went to the complex to buy an iPad in what may have been a robbery set-up.

    Sounds like he may have gone into the hood to buy an ipad?

    Per his wife's Facebook, it was a Craigslist meeting. How terrible.

    So sad. What a waste. Now a little boy will grow up without his father. It never ceases to amaze me how criminals will lure in an innocent person, that they know nothing about, knowing that they will likely kill them.

    Jim was my best friend's boyfriend's platoon sergeant. This is so, so sad. All of my thoughts go out to his beautiful wife and son. So unfair.

    I'd think they would be able to track down the perps very soon with phone and computer records, correct?

    I'll be watching our local news and check in with any new developments...

    I'm so sorry. My friend's cousin is a client of Jamie and Jim's photography. That's how I came across it. He sounds like a great man.

    I would imagine they would be able to track it. Does Craigslist retain the IP address a post comes from? I don't know. If they don't and if these perps have a burn phone, could complicate it. Let's hope these %#!holes weren't smart. They deserve to be locked away forever.

    So sad

    Something very similar happened her in SoCal very recently. Seems like it's spreading. Hopefully they will find Mr Vester's killers soon.

    If I ever do a Craigslist hook-up, I'm suggesting the local Police Dept.

    Otherwise, no way.

    Do they know if the perps were definitely the Craiglist "sellers?" Or was he robbed at random by someone else in the complex parking lot?

    Someone I went to college with posted about this on facebook -- his wife knew him

    We use Craigslist a lot -- my husband is selling his ipod on there now -- but I think we'll stick to meeting in public places from now on.

    **ARREST MADE**

    Police arrested Tryon Kincade, 19, and his 18-year-old brother Tyshaune and preliminarily charged them with murder and robbery. The men were allegedly involved in the shooting death of 32-year-old James Vester on Wyckford Drive Wednesday afternoon.
