    WAYNESVILLE, Ind. — The bodies of four individuals, discovered in a Waynesville home Saturday night after they were shot to death, were removed from the scene at about 7:10 a.m. today.

    Sheriff Mark Gorbett, addressing the media just before 5 a.m., said deputies were called to a home at 2634 E. Main Cross St. at 10:39 p.m. Saturday, when a resident returned home and discovered at least two bodies in the living room.

    The individual, who had just gotten home from work, called 911 and was told by dispatchers to leave the home — where he lived with his mother and stepfather — until deputies could arrive, which occurred at 10:51 p.m............

    Gorbett said at 5 a.m. that no suspects had been arrested, but the sheriff is planning another press conference at 3 p.m. today to announce any additional details that emerge.............

    I live not to far from these areas and I agree. I wonder how much of it has to do with the depressed economy.

    Ok, weird. Could that imply she committed suicide after killing the others?

    First I thought she killed them all then went into the bedroom, locked herself in and killed herself. Then I thought she might have been killed by her boyfriend earlier while she was in bed, then he locked the door. Later he killer the other 2 men, then himself. I think the latter makes the most sense.

    The killing of four people in a Waynesville residence Saturday were described today as "a very violent and brutal attack."

    Those were the words of Bartholomew County Coroner Larry Fisher, who spoke to the media with Sheriff Mark Gorbett.

    The sheriff also said several spent shell casings were collected from the crime scene at 2634 E. Main Cross St., as well as methamphetamine.

    Gorbett said the homicides are considered to be drug-related.

    Strange. On one of our local newstation said the son who found all the victims had been shot by one of the visitors previously but they made up with one another. Going to have to look further to see what news station it was.

    The whole phone call was strange.

    There were 3 bodies in the living room but he only saw two (the other must have been under the other 2 bodies?).

    He may have been in shock (I'm sure he was) and he was probably aware of the drug activity.

    And his mother was the only one with stab wounds.

    Waynesville quadruple homicide 911 call, full transcript
    http://www.tribtown.com/view/local_story/Waynesville-quadruple-homicide_1368567676
    (snipped from article)

    Burton: I see the lights.

    911: OK, she's almost there.

    Burton: A female officer?

    911: Yeah.

    Burton: That's even better.

    I found this in the local paper today. I think the 911 operator did an awesome job!!! Maybe it's just me, but this transcript/phone call threw up several red flags for me??

    From scorekeepers link:

    Two persons of interest have been interviewed, but there have been no arrests, Gorbett said.

    Daniel Burton, the son of Katheryn Burton, who discovered the scene Saturday night, has been cooperative and is not considered a suspect, Gorbett said.
