    IN - Kobi Walden, 31, murdered, Indianapolis, 1 May 2017

    (**This is my first time starting a new thread, so bear with me! This is local to me and while I do not know the victim, we have mutual friends**)

    Family and friends of a murdered Indianapolis man are begging anyone who knows anything about the crime to please come forward.

    On Monday afternoon, a group of fishermen found Kobi Walden’s body behind an apartment complex on the city’s south side.

    his fb posts show he was so excited for a roller derby match i think, just about a week ago. it makes me so sad to see how normal someone's life is before it's taken from them.

    Police say Kobi Walden, 31, died from multiple gunshot wounds, and the case is being investigated as a homicide.

    “I heard 6 or 7 rounds and thought it was fireworks....
    bbm

    Not much info to go on but will take a closer look.

    Anyone from the area that can give some insight to the neighborhood?

    Agree. Even though I didn't know him personally, from what I see on FB, he was very loved and respected. I hope his family and friends get justice.

    Thank you for this. I live in Indianapolis but I am on the complete other side of town, so anything I know about the neighborhood would be rumors or talk that I've read on social media.

    ETA: I will see what details I can find about the apartments.

    According to Google map, this apartment home invasion shooting is 10 minutes from where Kobi was located.

    FWIW (?) Since they are both apartments. Is crime in that area common/uncommon?

    Indianapolis has high crime areas in "pockets" it seems. This area to me is not known as a high homicide area at all (MOO). I found a 2017 homicide map of Indy and it looks like it is not common in this area at all (when compared to the inner city). Although I would have to look more into crime rates in general, the murder is what seems to be not ordinary.

    The location of Kobi's incident is shown here where I circled in purple so you can see the comparison of homicides closer to inner city.

    Exclamation IN - Kobi Lee Walden, 31, Murdered, Indianapolis, 1 May 2017

    I am still rusty on the rules of what I can post, I've tried to read as much as I can, but if I heard something on a scanner can I share it here or no? TIA.

    I live on the northside in suburbs of Indy. Southside is known for down-home, somewhat "redneck" populations in just some opinions.

    Here is Kobi's obituary. It mentions he was a musician and frequently played in the Indy Pride Band. I hope this wasn't a hate crime but it could be JMO

    99.9% positive it's a no.
    edit to add flag your post so a moderator can see your question. Perhaps a thread can be started downstairs in the scanner section.

    I thought so, too, sometimes I get things confused. Ugh. Thank you so much!

    I'm on the north side also. I grew up on the east side which is known as high crime, but I haven't spent much time on the south side. From what I know, your description is spot on. Hate crime was one of my first thoughts as well, IMO.

    I don't know the requirements for setting up a scanner thread but if you do set one up, let me know and I will transcribe.

    So far, I haven't heard enough to be worth starting one, IMO. But I really appreciate it, and I'll let you know if it changes.
