Indianapolis is one of the country’s most dangerous cities according to a new report by “24/7 Wall St.” The report ranked Indianapolis 13th out of all major cities for violent crime. The list was made using data from the FBI’s 2015 Uniform Crime Report. With 148 murders in 2015, the year ended on the books as the deadliest year on record for this city.
Indy may be in the running again for 2016, based on these latest crime headlines…
Indianapolis Metro Police (IMPD) continue their investigation into a double shooting in Broad Ripple that has left one man dead and another one critical. Police were called to an ally near the Lava Lounge nightclub in the 6300 block of Guilford Avenue around 3 a.m. Monday morning. Various media reports reported that police found one man who said he’d been shot and later found another. Both men had at least one gunshot wound. They were taken to IU/Methodist Hospital. One of them, a 23-year-old, died at the hospital. The other man, only identified at this time as “a 22-year-old,” was shot in the stomach and is in critical condition. Police have not released the victim’s identities.
A teenager shot while trying to sell a cell phone is in serious condition. IMPD says the boy was shot early Sunday morning in the parking lot of their southeast district headquarters. Investigators say the boy was in the parking lot to complete an “Offer Up” deal. “Offer Up” is an online service that allows users to buy, sell and exchange items with other users.
No one seems to know if two child murder victims, Liliana Hernandez and Rene Pasztor, will get a public memorial. Family members canceled a funeral mass for the siblings that was supposed to be held Monday. Their mother, Amber Pasztor, is charged with kidnapping and then killing them. Amber Pasztor is due in court later on Monday to face formal murder charges.
Also due in court on this busy Monday is an Indianapolis father who is accused of killing his infant son. A jury trial begins today deciding the fate of Willie Wilson. You may recall the case of the disappearance of 6-week old Delano Wilson. It was originally reported in August 2014 as a violent kidnapping that turned into a desperate search that ended up being a suspicious false report, with evidence including internet how-to searches on child abduction and surveillance video leading to Wilson. In February 2015, Wilson was charged with murder in connection with the baby’s disappearance. Police deducted after finding blood evidence that the baby boy was dead. His remains have never been found.
If your morning commute takes you up northbound I-65, you may want to find a new way to work. Crews are wrapping-up bridge work meaning the exits on I-65 northbound between Meridian and Pennsylvania streets were closed until 6 a.m. on Monday morning and they will do the same Tuesday morning.
Residents are ‘batening down the hatches’ in the Caribbean. A major hurricane is threatening both, Haiti and Jamaica, on this Monday. ‘Hurricane Matthew’ is packing winds of 130 miles per hour and is the strongest storm to threaten the Caribbean in nearly a decade. Haiti and Jamaica are expected to get hit today, with landslides, high waves and flooding possible. The storm could threaten the Southeast U.S. later this week.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says there’s no evidence that Donald Trump didn’t pay taxes for years. Christie said on “Fox News Sunday” that documents obtained by The New York Times only show that Trump took a loss of nearly a billion-dollars in 1995. Trump could have legally avoided paying taxes on more than $900-million in income for 18 years after that.
Former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says a leaked page from Donald Trump’s 1995 tax return illustrates the inequality between the rich and the rest of America. This was Sanders’ response to the same New York Times report.
The Colts are adding another loss to their record. They fell to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday on an international stage, 30-to-27. The game was played at London’s Wembley Stadium. The Colts and Jaguars are now tied in the AFC South at 1-and-3. By the way, Robin Thicke provided the pre-game entertainment.
