    Indiana Unsolved: Trisha Kay Meredith, 19, stabbed in apartment laundry area
    Another murder where witnesses heard screams but failed to act. :tsktsk:

    Note: Recall Detective Carter said this case is not believed to be related to Carmen Van Huss's murder. Just thought I'd mention it now for anyone who might have missed it.

    The killer was obviously quite bold to do such a thing at that time of day in an apparently busy apartment complex. It is just unbelievable that the group hitting golf balls heard the screams and yet did not even investigate or call the police! And if there were people in the parking lot but nobody saw anyone exit during that time (the person had to have been covered in blood splatter) it leads one to believe that the killer resided in the building as well. I wonder if everyone in the apartment was talked to that day? The comment from the detective made it sound like they have the suspect's DNA that they could possibly test using today's technology. I hope that is the case and this is being done now. So sad about her mother and recently her brother too!

    I looked at the scene on google and there is a pair of service doors in the back of this laundry room so my money would be a maintenance person who had easy in and out.
    Also I wonder if police looked on the very low roof for a knife.

    Another case I think about a lot. Like Carmen, frenzied stabbing. Makes you wonder...i think they need to look harder at the groundsmen. JMO

    Article from 2016
    Lots of information

    “As the investigation went on, that person became a suspect, a person of interest,” said Reardon. “Unbeknownest to me, as the investigation went on for a day or two, that individual who allowed us to use the telephone had a recording system set up in the back of his apartment and so he knew all the conversations that I was having with my partner who was trying to get a more comprehensive story from the boyfriend of Trish who had found Trish.”

    Over the years, Reardon has kept track of his two best suspects and has developed no new leads to sway him from their pursuit.

    The only unsolved case I had was Trisha Meredith,” said Reardon. “I am firm believer that all cases can be solved.”
