Indy homicides are evidently being downplayed as the year winds down. Throughout the year the reporting of violent deaths has been minimal, with little more than a casual mention in the news. The victims names are often not even given.
Lately, the habit seems to be to release a short statement about a death that is being investigated. Such was the case on Thanksgiving, when two mysterious deaths were noted, police made no (public) determination of circumstances, and yet ask people to call Crime Stoppers if they have information:
2221 Radcliff Ave – man dead in home
6231 W Washington St – man dead at motel
Could it be because the number of homicides in Indy is trending towards a 5 year peak?
