    Steven Lindsey, 35, has been arrested and charged with murder in the Jan. 16 shooting death of his wife, Melinda Lindsey, 23, in Porter County.

    We are starting a new thread for the shooting death of Melinda Lindsey.

    The last thread was filled with non-mainstream media links. Too many to remove which is why we are starting fresh.

    Thank you so much for this! This is the case that brought me here, but I could never find the thread! I am so glad to hear that they arrested the husband. His story was weak from the outset. I just feel so sorry for Melinda's daughter and his son by his first wife. Such a tragedy.

    His story is completely weak. Choked unconscience, but heard the gunshot while unconscience. Lifted by his neck & put in a choke hold from behind to the point of blacking out and dragged into daughter's bedroom. Bound with ONE zip-tie (that was somewhat loose) on his wrists behind his back. Nothing on his legs. Gunshot residue on him, but claims not shooting a weapon; the baby standing in her crib described as "calm" by the responding officers after a life or death struggle; A $1M dollar + $100,000 accidental death clause life insurance policy on a 23yo housewife; a wife who was trying to leave him; wife shot with her own gun; big dog in the house; no indication of forced entry;
    Wow.

    Seeing as a choke hold will only put you out for 30-45 seconds!! Then makes it an appoint to tell the judge he is on meds for anxiety and depression.. Hmm I feel a bs plea coming on.. Ugh

    Lol. You should give the closing statement for the prosecutor. I would find him guilty just by listening to this quick detailed run down you just gave. Thanks.

    ....lol....
    And don't forget the aftermath...
    He left his wife's body at the ME's office for DAYS without claiming her; Then he had her CREMATED without a service; he immediately took down her Facebook account; and then got busy trying to claim the life insurance money.

    So yeah...just the circumstantial evidence is SO BAD. I can't wait to hear the rest of the evidence they have that hasn't been released.

    The investigators had him show them by replaying how he made the 9-11 call with his hands behind his back. He couldn't recreate it.

    Wow. They need to send monthly reminders to spouses that have big policies out on them. Sometimes a conniving spouse will tripple the policy without the other knowing. So sad.

    This guy doesn't seem like the brightest bulb. There were also no signs of a struggle, nothing that indicates forced entry and no footprints in the snow around the house. I really don't know how he thought he was going to get away with this.

    Thank you from me too. I've now read the rules and won't post anything I shouldn't. This was the crime that brought me here also. Such a tragedy - and such an incredibly weak story it beggars belief. i hope the people around him aren't going to ruin themselves financially in order to pay for a lawyer for him.

    Has LE said if he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol? Shooting a sleeping person is an incredible act of cowardice.
