    Here's a Google Map with several locations marked. Let me know of corrections or additions. Any idea where Davey's gym was located?

    Blackburn's husband found her in their home about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday when he returned from the gym. A resident reported hearing gunshots between 6:45 and 6:55 a.m. She died Thursday and her organs were procured for donation.

    Amanda Blackburn, who was also mother to a 1-year-old toddler, was found by first responders “unresponsive, and suffering from apparent signs of trauma” on Tuesday, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.

    Emergency crews were called to a northwest-side home on Sunnyfield Court around 8:35 a.m. Tuesday for a report of an unresponsive woman. They arrived to find 28-year-old Amanda Blackburn in critical condition suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.

    The case began when IMPD officers were dispatched to a home in the 2800 block of Sunnyfield Court to assist Indianapolis Fire Department crews after it was determined a woman at the residence had been assaulted.

    Arriving officers found the unresponsive woman inside the home with "apparent signs of trauma," police said. However, according to an IMPD report, the "woman was shot."

    Emergency medical personnel then transported Blackburn to IU Health Methodist Hospital.

    I've been following this case since the first thread, but I may have missed a few posts here and there. I don't think this article was posted yet:

    Amanda Blackburn's best friend: 'Amanda inspired me in so many ways'

    http://www.theindychannel.com/news/l...n-so-many-ways

    There's a short video at the link. Amanda's friend seems devastated. She can hardly speak to the reporter through her tears. It looks like Amanda had a great set of friends. I hope justice comes soon.

    Four suspects questioned in connection to death of Amanda Blackburn
    TheIndyChannel.com Staff
    8:59 AM, Nov 19, 2015
    2 hours ago

    [...]

    It is unknown whether an arrest will come from the questioning, but the four are in police custody.

    They were found overnight at two different locations by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. IMPD raided the two locations Thursday morning with search warrants, including an apartment complex on the northeast side where they had taken three of the four suspects into custody. A source told RTV6 they were looking for clothing that the killer or killers were wearing the day surveillance photos captured them on Sunnyfield Court following Blackburn's death at her home on that road.

    ==================

    The following statement was issued to RTV6:

    "At this point in the investigation, we cannot confirm, nor do we know that Amanda Blackburn was sexually abused.
    That information may change as more evidence comes in, but at this time nothing in our investigation shows that."
    Lt. Richard Riddle, IMPD Spokesperson.

    IMPD also issued a more general statement Thursday about the status of the investigation:

    Investigators continue to follow up on all investigative leads in the murder of Amanda Blackburn. We continue to talk with individuals who may have some knowledge of the case. We will keep you posted on any new developments. No other information is available at this time.

    Very short blurb about one of the searches...

    A 21-year-old man who lives in the apartment where police served a search warrant Thursday says it was all a misunderstanding.

    http://www.wthr.com/story/30564314/p...olis-apartment

    He said he knows nothing about the investigation into Amanda's murder.

    Amanda Blackburn case: Two arrested after Indianapolis police probes
    Jill Disis, jill.disis@indystar.com
    7:53 p.m. EST November 19, 2015

    [...]
    Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Sgt. Kendale Adams acknowledged late in the evening that the two people were questioned about the slaying of the pastor’s wife during an attempted burglary last week.

    The individuals were later taken into custody on charges unrelated to either the Blackburn killing or another burglary that happened on the same street earlier that morning.

    “There are no arrests,” Adams said. “And nobody is in custody in connection with the Amanda Blackburn case. Period.”

    [...]
    Police have closely guarded details in the case. The names of the two people taken into custody Thursday were not released.

    Three arrested, one held on murder charge in Amanda Blackburn case
    Published November 23, 2015

    The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement that Larry Taylor was arrested by detectives from the department's violent crime and gang units, with assistance from U.S. Marshals. Prosecutors were reviewing the case to make a final decision on what charges Taylor would face in connection with the murder of Amanda Blackburn.

    "We are thankful to our federal, state and local partnerships that aided in the apprehension of the suspect in this terrible and senseless crime," IMPD Chief Rick Hite said in the statement. "All victims of criminal homicides deserve closure, and as a community we must send a collective message that violence is not an option. Our detectives have worked tirelessly going days without sleep to solve murders in our city."

    Fox 59 reported that two other suspects, identified as Jalen Watson and Diano Gordon, have been arrested in relation to the Nov. 10 murder. The station also reported that all three will be charged in at least three more burglaries as well as a sexual assault.
