Five Dead in Indiana: Neighbors Unsure if Suspect on Loose

Jupiterimages/Comstock/Thinkstock(FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ind.) -- Worried neighbors in a rural Indiana town where five people were killed said Monday that they have not been told anything by police, especially whether a suspect has been identified or if a killer is on the loose.

Authorities in Franklin County, Ind., are releasing few details about the five people who were found dead, with possible gunshot wounds, at two homes in the town of Laurel.

"We live a couple of doors down, and you'd think they'd come around and tell us to be careful of the woods and look in your barn, but nothing. You'd think they'd send a detective around knocking on doors, but he didn't come here," said John Hammons, who lives on the same road where the five people were killed.

The bodies were found Sunday after police got a report of a child wandering along a road. They interviewed the child and neighbors, which led them to a home where a dead male was found inside a recreational vehicle. Police then found the other four bodies across the street.

Sgt. Jerry Goodin of the Indiana State Police told ABC News on Monday that police are still looking for a suspect or suspects, and that they are not saying whether they believe any of the deceased were responsible for the deaths.

Police said that the names of the victims would be released following autopsies in Indianapolis and the notification of family members.
