  • IPS showcases new all-choice high school modelIPS showcases new all-choice high school model

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — On Saturday, students got the chance to learn more about education that could help them follow a career path. Indianapolis Public Schools headed its fourth annual showcase of schools. Representatives answered questions about a new all-choice high school model. It will launch next school year. IPS will offer 15 high school option programs with more than 40 academic paths to choose. “I’m a very hands-on learner, and there’s not very many classes where you can learn hands on,” said Jonathan Garmany, who graduated from Arsenal Tech. “Now that you have these career programs, it helps you be academic in your other classes. I knew if I failed my other classes, i couldn’t take my career program,” Garmany said. Also new this year — a way for students and their families to apply through “One Match” — one application for a dozen different school options.

  • Indiana keeps bowl hopes alive with 41-0 win over RutgersIndiana keeps bowl hopes alive with 41-0 win over Rutgers

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Richard Lagow threw two touchdown passes Saturday, and Morgan Ellison ran for two more scores as Indiana shut out Rutgers 41-0. The Hoosiers (5-6, 2-6 Big Ten) have won two straight to move within one victory of becoming bowl-eligible for the third straight season and they posted their first Senior Day shutout since 1958 despite a 1-hour, 47-minute lightning delay late in the third quarter. “That’s what they deserved,” Indiana coach Tom Allen said. “They’ve given so much to our program. They’ve sacrificed so much, they believed when they came here to help us re-establish some things.” Rutgers (4-7, 3-5) has lost two in a row and has lost by 20 or more points four times this season. Indiana made it look easy, too, on a blustery day that devolved into a driving rainstorm. Ellison capped the Hoosiers’ first possession with a 6-yard scoring run and Lagow hooked up with a wide-open Ian Thomas on a 57-yard TD pass to make it 14-0 less than seven minutes into the game. Griffin Oakes made field goals of 26 and 20 yards to give the Hoosiers a 20-0 halftime lead, and then the Hoosiers continued to pour it on in the second half. One play after Lagow was picked off at the Rutgers 31-yard line, Greg Gooch came up with a strip-sack that gave the ball right back to Lagow at the Scarlet Knights 24. Three plays later, he found Luke Timian for a 20-yard TD pass. Ellison sealed it with a 1-yard scoring run with 4:19 left in the third. Then with 2:31 left in the third, the referees spotted lightning near Memorial Stadium. Both teams were sent to the locker and the small crowd was told to seek shelter. Many fans headed home and when the game resumed only a couple hundred returned to their seats. But Rutgers still failed to mount any kind of challenge. “They whipped us on both sides of the ball and the result is what it is,” Rutgers coach Chris Ash said. “We didn’t play very well and that’s on me.” Lagow finished 17 of 28 for 236 yards with one interception, Thomas caught four passes for 93 yards while Ellison and Cole Gest each rushed for more than 100 yards. Ellison ran 15 times for 149 yards and Gest added 23 carries for 104 yards and one TD. Rutgers was outgained 503-186 in total yards as Indiana pitched its second shutout of the season. It’s the first time since 1993 that the Hoosiers have had multiple shutouts in one season. THE TAKEAWAY Rutgers: The Scarlet Knights have achieved plenty in Ash’s second season. They’ve tied the school record for Big Ten wins in a season and are one of six Big Ten teams to follow a winless conference season with four league wins. But this dreadful performance will almost certainly keep Rutgers home for the holidays. Indiana: A brutal schedule put the Hoosiers’ postseason hopes in serious jeopardy. But dominant performances the last two weeks put them back in contention. And this was easily their most impressive win of the season. UP NEXT Rutgers: Returns home next Saturday to face Michigan State. Indiana: Visits Purdue next Saturday, looking for a school record fifth consecutive win against their in-state rival.

  • November storm causes severe damage in FrankfortNovember storm causes severe damage in Frankfort

    FRANKFORT, Ind. – Strong winds ripped through the east side of Frankfort Saturday afternoon affecting dozens of homeowners, the high school and several businesses. The damage centered around Frankfort High School and covered about a 1-mile stretch. The National Weather Services is still investigating if a tornado or straight-line winds caused the damage, but gusts were able to obliterate a garage, tip two semis and tear apart several roofs. “I was scared to death,” Frankfort resident Melissa Stepp said. “It was a matter of five seconds and it was over with.” Stepp was working at a nearby business when the winds and rain picked up around noon Saturday. “I saw all the trees going toward the ground so we ran in the bathroom,” she said. Clinton County’s EMA Director said there were no serious injuries Saturday and the county’s response plan went as executed. Crews spent Saturday afternoon cleaning up debris at several locations including Frankfort High School, Walmart and the First Church of the Nazarene. “As bad as the grounds look we still have a roof on most of the building. It just has a few leaks,” Frankfort School Corporation Transportation Director Dave Fouse said. Fouse explained the district was in the process of replacing the roof at the high school and those supplies were blown all over the campus. Also, debris from other buildings that were damaged flew across the roof of the schools basketball court and other areas and tore dozens of holes. Crews spent Saturday afternoon patching those up before more rain returned. “Kids back to school on Monday like nothing happened is always number one,” he said. Walmart also had several holes in its roof. The retailer closed Saturday afternoon and hopes to reopen Sunday. Two semi trailers in the parking lot also had to be turned upright Saturday.

  • Firefighter accused of leaving his dog locked in crate to die after evictionFirefighter accused of leaving his dog locked in crate to die after eviction

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A dog found dead in a crate inside a bedroom closet has led to charges against a Missouri firefighter who police say left the pet behind when he was evicted from his apartment. Blayne Trevor Theunissen, a 25-year-old firefighter with the Kansas City Fire Department, is charged with animal neglect and animal abuse, a misdemeanor. According to the charging documents, animal control officers made the grisly find Sept. 17 when they were called out to The Crossing at Barry Road, an apartment complex south of I-29 and Barry Road in the Northland. Officials say they found the decomposing body of a female chocolate Labrador retriever mix inside a crate in the abandoned apartment. (Facebook) The apartment manager told the animal control officer that after Theunissen was evicted, they went into the apartment and found the dog dead and decomposing in the bedroom closet. The dog was a female chocolate Labrador retriever mix. The dog's body was examined by a veterinarian, who determined she was severely emaciated at the time of death. Her 'body condition score' was a 1 out of 9. The veterinarian's report said there were large maggots found on her of more mature larvae. The investigator noted he tried to reach Theunissen numerous times through the firefighters union and by the phone number that had been given by apartment management. "At this time, Blayne Theunissen is refusing to cooperate with the investigation involving animal abuse and neglect," said the special investigator in his report. The fire department declined to comment on this story. The eviction notice went up on Theunissen's  door on June 30, according to apartment management. The eviction was executed on Sept. 7, although Theunissen was not there. It is unclear how long the dog had been left alone, unfed in her crate in the apartment closet.

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Heavy rain and thunderstorms moved through central Indiana Saturday producing up to 2.5 inches of rain in some spots. Standing water occurred on area roads and in neighborhoods due to heavy rain and most likely clogged drains. As cold air wraps in behind the cold front, there's a chance of a wintry mix, especially across northern Indiana through this evening.

A blustery day is in store Sunday with gusts to 25 mph and highs only in the mid-30s. We should decrease the cloud cover through the afternoon. However, a few snow showers are possible across northeast Indiana on Sunday. Monday will be milder with breezy south, southwest winds.

  • For those about to rock: 10 of the greatest AC/DC songsFor those about to rock: 10 of the greatest AC/DC songs

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – 64 is way too young. Founding member Malcolm Young of the legendary rock band AC/DC died today. His brother Angus is a little bit more known, but Malcolm was a main songwriter for the band and described as the heartbeat behind AC/DC. Young started the band in 1973 at the age of 20 with Angus. He retired permanently from the band in 2014. Reports indicated at that time that Young was placed in a care facility for complete loss of short-term memory. There’s no word yet on the cause of death. AC/DC would not exist if it wasn’t for Malcom Young. Let’s take a look back at 10 of the best AC/DC songs. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap One of the best things about AC/DC is their opening riffs. They make a statement right away and grab you, some are simple like “Dirty Deeds,” and some are complex like “Thunderstruck. The tune was an album-titled single off their third album by the same name in 1976. The album was released in the United States five years later, after the death of Bon Scott. T.N.T Keeping the theme with early AC/DC, “T.N.T.” was an album-titled single off their second album, released in ’75. The Live At Donington set is one of their most famous concert movies. Watch them slay below. Shoot to Thrill After the death of original singer Bon Scott, the band quickly auditioned singers from all over. Brian Johnson came out on top and AC/DC produced Back in Black. “Shoot to Thrill” is the only non-single to be featured here, but it’s incredible. Fans of Iron Man 2 may remember this song from the movie. Highway To Hell If you couldn’t tell, the band is a fan of naming singles after their albums. “Highway to Hell” was the first single off the same-titled album released during the summer of 1979. It was the last album to feature Scott, as he died the following February. Back In Black This song was more than just a single for the band, it was a statement that the death of Bon Scott would not hold them back. In fact, it went on to become the second-highest album of all-time! Of all-time, that’s very surprising, but not shocking. It ranks behind Michael Jackson’s Thriller and in front of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon.  Who Made Who The band didn’t lose steam as they moved through the 80’s. They decided to produce a soundtrack for the Stephen King movie Maximum Overdrive in 1986 and released this as the only single. They filled in the rest of the album with legendary singles from their past. For Those About to Rock Talk about imagery, producing a cannon for this album title is amazing. One of my friends opened with this song before his DJ set in college and thousands of goosebumps pricked up on both of my arms. Rock out below.   Thunderstruck The soundtrack to many openings of high school football games, “Thunderstruck” was their best song of the 1990’s. It was released off their 12th album The Razors Edge in 1990. Malcolm provided backing vocals to this song. You Shook Me All Night Long Originally on Back in Black, “You Shook Me All Night Long” reappeared on their 1986 soundtrack album Who Made Who. If the people like it, why not give it to them again? Check out the official video below. Hells Bells The first song off Back in Black made quite the statement. It starts off with a haunting bell striking four times slowly. Talk about showmanship, lowering down the official “Hell’s Bell” while rocking live is incredible. Celebrity deaths constantly come up in the headlines, but it seems like 2017 has hit the music world especially hard. Rest In Peace, Malcolm.

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It is scientific fact: nearly every edible fruit, vegetable, herb, nut and seed on earth can help prevent, treat, and even cure disease. That’s what food is: vitamins, energy and information absolutely vital for our cells to continue our lives. It is widespread vitamin deficiency that carries the blame for the majority of today’s diseases. Soft and sweet, pears, packed with vitamins, fiber and antioxidants, make a delicious, healthy snack or dessert. 1st segment: Nutritional benefits of eating fresh pears. Prepping pears for oven roasting and blending cashew cream. What is chai? 2nd Segment: Assembling dessert and finishing cashew cream. We were created / evolved to express perfect health: being sick isn’t natural. Sickness and disease are mostly caused by vitamin deficiencies. It’s like trying to build a house without tools.

  • Man dies following house fire on city’s east sideMan dies following house fire on city’s east side

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One man is dead following an early morning house fire on the city’s east side, and now IMPD is investigating it as a possible homicide. Fire officials were called out to the residence just before 1 a.m. Saturday morning in the 9400 block of Barr Drive — that’s near 30th Street and Post Road. A 70-year-old man was pulled from the fire and initially said to be in critical condition but later died from his injuries. Damages to the home were estimated around $50,000. Martha Settles lives directly across the street and said she was good friends with the 70-year-old man she called Mr. Steve. She said he had problems with people trying to break into his home as recently as a couple months ago. Settles says he was too nice to strangers who would often ask him for money. Settles said the last thing her neighbor said to her was to watch his house because people were trying to break in again. That was just two days ago. However, IMPD told 24-Hour News 8 it has no calls about break-ins at the victim’s address. Now only memories remain for Settles about her Mr. Steve, an Air Force veteran she called a great man, one of her best friends and a good influence on her grandchildren. “He will always be my friend. Always. Because he treated me with a lot of respect, and I treated him with respect. Because I loved him,” she said. If you have any information on the fire, you are urged to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477.

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- IMPD detectives are now investigating an early morning fire on the east side of Indianapolis that left one man dead as a homicide. A preliminary police report showed charged of murder, arson and burglary. Detectives on the scene told us the fire was extremely suspicious and that there was more than one point of ignition. Shortly after 12:50 a.m., crews arrived to the 9400 block of Barr Drive, on reports of an alarm. The alarm was quickly upgraded to a working residence fire, as neighbors saw flames coming out of the house. "My family woke me about 1 o'clock saying this house is on fire," said Williams Sanders who lives next door. "The flames, it got bad in this one room right here." Crews were able to contain the fire pretty quickly, but found a man in his 70's inside. He was pronounced dead at the scene. "It messed me up when I was looking and I seen them when they brought his body out," said Sanders. Rita Reith, the fire chief for Indianapolis Fire Department, says the man lived there alone. Steve Wendt lives a few streets away and said he'd talk to the man every now and then. "Just kind of a quiet, gentle old man. Him and I shared a passion for woodworking," he said.

  • Community ‘angry’ after child molesting charges filed against councilmanCommunity ‘angry’ after child molesting charges filed against councilman

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Republican Party leader and constituents of an Indianapolis City-County councilman responded on Friday after he was charged with three counts of child molesting. Jeffrey Miller, 50, was booked in the Marion County Jail on Friday and charged with three counts of child molesting. Court records show he was released Friday night. According to online court records, Marion Superior Judge Mark Stoner, set to oversee the case, will recuse himself, and a special judge will be appointed. Jim Merritt, chairman of the Marion County Republican Party, told 24-Hour News 8 he’s waiting for Miller’s formal letter of resignation. People who live in Miller’s district said they are upset, angry and disgusted after learning about the allegations involving two 10-year-old girls. According to court documents, the investigation began in October when one of the 10-year-old girls told her parents about what happened. She told investigators Miller touched her inappropriately at his home on Fletcher Avenue. He massaged her upper legs, patted her on the butt and touched her bra by putting his hand underneath her shirt. Documents show the girl came forward after watching the news with her parents about someone famous doing the same thing. During their investigation, the other 10-year-old girl told detectives Miller would massage her foot and back using massage tools. The girl told her mother Miller gave her a piggyback ride and “grabbed her butt.” For the past six years, Miller has represented the 16th District, which includes the south and southwest sides of Indianapolis. But his career in city politics is likely coming to an end. “Now that all of these charges have been filed, I don’t know this Jeff Miller,” said Merritt. “We have separated him from the Republican Party. I can’t tell you how angry I am about this situation.” Merritt said he talked with Miller on Friday, and Miller indicated he would resign from his seat. “Obviously, he has 30,000 constituents that elected him to the spot, so it’s up to him now to write me a letter and the clerk of the court a letter in Marion County resigning, and I expect that to be on my desk on Monday morning,” said Merritt. “I dedicated most of my life, most of my career, to legislation dealing with keeping kids safe, and my heart goes out to the victims in this tragedy,” said Merritt. “This is not what the Republican Party is about. This is not what the Marion County Republican Party is all about.” Merritt said once he receives a formal letter of resignation from Miller, he will call for a special election within 30 days to fill Miller’s seat. Constituents we spoke to said they agree with that decision. “I got four children, so someone like that to represent our community and so many kids around here, it’s just scary, and it’s disgusting,” said Amanda Kelley, who lives near Rhodius Park. “I wouldn’t want him representing my district if anything like that was really going on,” said Madonna Prewiitt, who lives in Mars Hill.

  • Councilman’s molestation charges open door for talks with your kids, experts sayCouncilman’s molestation charges open door for talks with your kids, experts say

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.- With the charges of child molestation against Indianapolis City-Councilman Jeff Miller, and the allegations that keep coming out about big names in Hollywood and politics, the issue of sexual abuse is dominating the headlines. It is not a pretty subject to talk about, but experts say it is one that is especially important to discuss with your children, even though it can be terrifying. “There’s not necessarily a certain age, you just want to set the stage for the conversation to keep occurring as the child gets older,” said Sandy Runkle-Delorme, of Prevent Child Abuse Indiana. She said discussions can progress and naturally get more sophisticated as a child grows. “Start opening up some conversations based on the child’s development and that’s up to the parents,” said Runkle-Delorme. But as some parents admit, it’s not always an easy discussion to have. “It’s uncomfortable but it is important,” said parent Laura Grogan. One of her daughters just learned about appropriate and inappropriate touching at school. She and her husband, William, said it’s something they take seriously. “We joke about it, oh it will never happen to us,” said William, “but it happens everywhere.” And experts say what’s happening around us, can also influence kids to speak up. Court documents show one of Miller’s alleged victims, a 10-year-old girl, told her parents that he’d massaged her inappropriately after she saw news coverage of Harvey Weinstein. “That’s always positive to be able to use some of these unfortunate events that have been occurring as a teaching moment for children,” said Runkle-Delorme. Court documents also say Miller was friends with both of his alleged victims—something experts say all parents need to keep in mind. “When a child is perpetrated against,” said Runkle-Delorme, “it is almost always by somebody the child knows.”

  • A look inside a police bodycam programA look inside a police bodycam program

    LAWRENCE, Ind. (WISH) — It’s been nearly a year since Lawrence Police Department started using body cameras, and the department said the cameras are helping solve cases while holding officers and the public accountable. Chief David Hofmann said there’s been a reduction in cases going to trial from Lawrence police because of the evidence these body cameras give the prosecutor’s office. The hope is cases gone cold can also get revived from this everlasting video. It looks like a phone but it slips right into an officer’s uniform to document every call from a Lawrence police officer. “This is a game changer in law enforcement,” Hofmann said. WISH-TV followed Officer Matt Weber for several hours this week to see the impact in real time. Dispatchers sent Weber to a scene where a couple of young men were allegedly smoking marijuana. “I try to talk to the people so they know I’m a person, too,” the officer said after the incident. One of the men told Weber he had a handgun. After getting the weapon, Weber made sure to record the serial number and the gun on his body camera. “If there’s evidence that’s needed for a later investigation, it would pick up that firearm,” he said. The men did not get arrested, but Weber said a homicide this summer at Maison Garden Apartments showed him the importance of body camera recordings. “I was talking to the victim trying to get any information that I could,” he recalled. The victim died shortly after. That body camera recording is the last interview he gave and a possible tool for the detectives still trying to find that man’s killer. “That may be that one bit of information that we just don’t remember in the heat of the moment to put in our report that the camera always has,” he said. But these cameras can’t capture everything. For these body cameras to pick you up, you have to be looking straight on to the camera. If you do move side to side, then the officer has to move with you for these chest cameras to pick you up. If you get too close, it’s hard to see what’s happening. But the police chief said the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. Hofmann said this year all complaints against Lawrence police officers have been proven wrong because of body camera footage. One man accused an officer of stealing $500 from his son after an arrested. “Well, we showed him the video and he apologized and he told us that he had some things he needed to clear up with his son,” Hofmann said. The department spent $300,000 on the cameras over five years. It’s a tool the chief called the best investment by the department, one to keep you and its officers safe. Hofmann said he knows there could be a time where the body cameras show a mistake by Lawrence Police Department. He said the key is using them as a learning experience … and they will keep his officers accountable for their actions, the good and the bad.

The victim testified about the incidents, which were said to have occurred during the month Buskirk stayed at the residence of the other family members.

  • Wire taps helped lead authorities to Richard Grundy IIIWire taps helped lead authorities to Richard Grundy III

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A highly placed source indicates the raids conducted by FBI SWAT teams along with IMPD officers and Indiana State Police troopers Friday were the result of a long-term Operation Safe Streets and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigation including wire taps. That electronic surveillance reportedly picked up evidence of narcotics trafficking by Richard Grundy III, reputed leader of an Indianapolis drug gang, and his associates. David Carroll and Lance Hatcher were also arrested and previously faced charges as the result of 2015 IMPD investigations into drug trafficking and unsolved murders linked to the Grundy Crew. Across the board, charges were dropped or reduced in exchange for guilty pleas among the reputed gang members. Grundy himself, once charged in a murder conspiracy, pleaded guilty in August to a felony marijuana charge resulting in a suspended prison sentence and non-reporting probation. 17 suspects were sought in citywide raids carried out before dawn this morning. Three suspects may still be unaccounted for. All those arrested remain in federal custody inside the Marion County Jail pending initial appearances before a federal magistrate next week. U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler is expected to reveal details from the sealed warrants and charges Monday. Investigators discovered guns and drugs in some of today’s raid locations which includes addresses on North Central Avenue, North Medford Avenue and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Street. The source told FOX59 that Grundy’s name surfaced as part of an ongoing investigation, not necessarily a probe begun after his plea agreement. The willingness of the U.S. Attorney to file criminal charges against Grundy is indicative of prosecutors’ confidence of an eventual conviction, indicated the source, as federal authorities are often reluctant to pursue criminal cases built on less than, “door slammer,” evidence.\ Attorney Keirian Brown, who represented Grundy in his plea agreement last summer, told Fox 59 News he has not been in contact with his former client following his sentencing and was unaware of today’s developments. At the time of his last court appearance, Grundy was recovering from gunshot wounds suffered during an attack as he attend cemetery services for a cousin who was murdered in July. Last month, the Marion County Prosecutors Office won a successful conviction of reputed Grundy hit man John Means. Means was charged with a pair of double murders in the winter of 2014. He was found not guilty in one case. Charges were dismissed in the other. Within days of his release from custody last February, Means, a convicted serious violent felon, was arrested in possession of a firearm. He recently received a ten-year sentence on that charge and faces another count that could tack another 24 years onto his current prison term.

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Indianapolis Fire Department had responded to 27 fires as of Friday morning during November and 13 of them have been at vacant structures, IFD Battalion Chief Rita Reith said. “November has already been a busy month,” Reith said. “We seem to have a lot of reports of people seeking shelter in these vacant structures… We just don’t want anyone to get injured. All eyes on the city, all eyes on your neighborhood, and call 911 if you see people going in and out.” Friday, three firefighters were injured while fighting a blaze on the 200 block of South Warman Avenue at a vacant home. Just three weeks ago, three other firefighters were also injured fighting a fire at a vacant home on Ketchum Street. "The inside of these structures are not always safe as people may think. When people aren’t living in them, they can be dangerous places not only for squatters to be in, but also for us to try to mitigate a fire if they tried to set a fire inside to stay warm,” Reith said. Firefighters are urging the public to report any squatters they see entering into vacant buildings around town this winter. “We’re asking everyone to be pretty vigilant, if you see anything, call IMPD, call 911, let them know there are people going in and out of these structures,” Reith said.

  • Thieves steal scooter from double amputeeThieves steal scooter from double amputee

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - An Edinburgh man said he lost his freedom when thieves stole his scooter. Lee Wood rode a used blue Tao Tao scooter to get to work every day. He said he couldn't keep it inside his second story apartment, so he chained it to a tree and placed a blue tarp over it, hiding it within a tree line. It went untouched for about a month, until he woke up one morning and it was gone. "It definitely was my work horse. It got me around. It made life more easier and simpler," he said. "It was pretty devastating." Devastating, because Wood is a double amputee. "I was born with a disease called Sacral Agenesis," he explained. Wood underwent several surgeries in his childhood for his Clubfeet, but eventually they were amputated. Now, the 41-year-old walks on prosthetic legs. "Pain comes and goes," he said as he walked across the yard. Wood bought the scooter a year ago from friends for $400. He said he'd just put another $300 into it to fix it up. "I plan on getting another one. It just takes time. Save my money." He didn't ask for donations, but the Edinburgh Fire Department is stepping by offering to collect any donations that do come in on his behalf.  Donors should ask for Chief Allen Smith. Until then, he's hitching rides with friends or pedaling his bike. Sometimes he carries laundry or groceries, making his loss all the more painful. "I wasn't raised to steal from people, you know. If you want something, go get a job and work hard for it," he said. "It's unfortunate." If you have any information about Wood's scooter, contact the Edinburgh Police Department at (812) 526-2636.

Larry Lawson was taken into custody after an investigation began off the accusation that he possessed counterfeit currency on Aug. 7 at the Indiana State Fair. Police said Lawson agreed to be interviewed by ISP at their command center. During the interview, Lawson reportedly identified himself as a US Marshal and presented troopers with a badge. Authorities showed up to his residence two days later and he was interviewed at his home. Lawson told investigators that the badge he presented was false and that he was no longer in possession of it. During the interview, authorities said they found the badge in his nightstand, along with a handgun and a large amount of money. Lawson reportedly acknowledged that he lied to police earlier about no longer having the badge. He was taken into custody on Oct. 4 on charges of impersonating a federal officer and lying to a federal officer.

  • ‘Grundy Crew’ leader back in jail 8 weeks after being freed‘Grundy Crew’ leader back in jail 8 weeks after being freed

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) —  A man once accused by prosecutors of leading a murderous drug gang walked out of court a free man in September. On Friday, the U.S. Marshals Service returned Richard Grundy III to the Marion County Jail as the FBI coordinated a series of raids in and around Indianapolis. The FBI has not commented on the raids. In addition, associates who were part of the alleged drug gang — called the “Grundy Crew” — also were listed Friday as being brought to the jail by federal authorities: David Carroll, who turns 35 on Saturday, and Lance Hatcher, 33. Grundy faced charges in 2015 for conspiracy to deal marijuana, conspiracy to commit murder, corrupt business influence and criminal gang activity. All of those charges are dropped as part of a plea agreement with county prosecutors, and Grundy was put on two years of probation. In a separate case, prosecutors charged Gundy with murder in 2014 but dropped the charges after a witness lied. Before Grundy’s court sentencing Sept. 21, someone shot Grundy in the arm during his cousin’s funeral procession in July, police said. He said in September he was continuing to recover from the shooting injuries. After his September sentencing, Grundy said he planned to move to the West Coast to serve his two years of probation. “It’s important that I get out of town because I’m harassed every day for being Richard Grundy,” he said. Grundy’s former associates who were re-arrested Friday also had faced a similar fate after being criminally charged as part of his alleged drug gang. Carroll was convicted in August of marijuana possession, with 10 other charges, including three counts of conspiracy to commit murder, dismissed. Some of the charged were dropped as part of a plea deal. He was sentenced to a day in jail. Hatcher was convicted in August of unlawful possession of a firearm by serious violent felon and sentenced to probation as part of a plea deal. He was given permission to serve his probation time in Houston, Texas.

  • ‘Grundy Crew’ leader arrested as FBI agents conduct raids across Indianapolis‘Grundy Crew’ leader arrested as FBI agents conduct raids across Indianapolis

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—Federal authorities arrested the ringleader of the “Grundy Crew” Friday as FBI agents raided several locations in Indianapolis in an effort to crack down on guns, drugs and gang activity. Richard Grundy III, a man investigators and prosecutors accused of leading a murderous Indianapolis drug gang, was detained by authorities as part of the sweep. Sources indicated to FOX59 News that Grundy was a target of the raids after his name surfaced as part of federal surveillance during a recent drug investigation. In September, Grundy avoided jail time after murder charges filed against him were dropped. At one time, Grundy was charged with leading a major drug conspiracy ring that was investigated for its role in more than a dozen unsolved murders. Since the arrests of Grundy and his associates in the winter of 2015, several cases have been dismissed due to unreliable witnesses, other murder trials ended in acquittals and most of the co-defendants have pleaded guilty to reduced charges while, occasionally, picking up new criminal counts. FOX59 will update the story as more information becomes available.

    Ahead of the 2013 American Pianist Awards winner’s November 19 performance at the Indiana Landmarks Center, we pulled a few strings to score a chat with Chen. How many pianos do you own? I just have one—they’re too expensive to own multiple ones. So are different types of pianos good for different types of music? For performances, generally you want to have a grand piano because of the way it’s constructed, the way it resonates—the hammers use gravity, as opposed to upright pianos, which use springs.

  • Indianapolis councilman Jeff Miller charged with 3 counts of child molestationIndianapolis councilman Jeff Miller charged with 3 counts of child molestation

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.-- Indianapolis City-County Councilman Jeff Miller is accused of molesting two children following a nearly month-long investigation. Friday, three counts of child molesting, fondling or touching with child under 14 were filed against the councilman. The charges come after authorities conducted a search at Miller's home after reports of child molestation surfaced last month. Marion County Republican Central Committee Chairman Jim Merritt said he accepted Miller's resignation Friday, and it will be effective on Monday. A police report filed with Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) investigators on Oct. 20 included allegations of molestation, involving a young girl. According to court documents, police executed a search warrant for Miller's downtown home the next day. The warrant directed officers to search for handheld body massagers and massage tools or implements. They were also specifically searching for a massager described as a blue "blob" with a ribbon on the back for a hand as well as a wood massager that is arched with "spikey things that roll." The search warrant also told officers to take photos of the inside and outside of the detached garage and any vehicles belonging to Miller. Officers said in the document that photos were taken of a blue Toyota Prius. According to court documents filed in the case, one of the two alleged victims told authorities Miller "did bad touch" to her at his home on Oct. 20. She was playing a computer game when Miller allegedly came up to her and started massaging her. She tried to squirm away, but he didn't stop. This happened the next time she went to the home as well. She said he was doing it subtly and was touching her skin underneath her shirt. Court documents show she said Miller accidentally touched "this." She didn't say specifically what, but was pulling at her bra strap. The victim also said Miller tried to massage her between the legs, but she told him she didn't like it. She asked once, "Can you stop" and tried to squirm away on other occasions. Miller is also accused of patting her on the butt. She said nobody saw him do it, but he just kept doing it and would do so every time she was there. Court documents show she demonstrated to authorities how Miller would also touch her side. She claims one time, "he went all the way up and touched." She also said he massaged her on her upper legs, where her legs meet her groin. The "blob" massager was used by Miller to massage her feet. It vibrates when the user pushed in on it. She said on one occasion, Miller moved the massager up her thigh. She got up and went to do something else. One of the alleged victims said Miller used the blue massager, as well as the wooden one, on a friend's feet. She informed her parents of the incidents after seeing news reports "about the famous guy that directs Broadway things and how he has been doing things like this," court documents show, in reference to Harvey Weinstein. Her father, after seeing the report with her, expressed to her that she could always share anything with him or her mother. "I know," she replied. About an hour later, she told them about the massages. She expressed guilt for not saying anything earlier. One of the girls told authorities the massages were "pretty normal for them to do." One time, according to court documents, One of the girls said Miller gave her a piggyback ride and grabbed her butt. She told him to stop, but said he kept doing it. A parent said she had seen Miller be "very physical" with the children and pick them up in a way she wasn't comfortable with. Police interviewed Miller about the allegations on Oct. 21. When asked what would happen when kids came over to his home, he said the kids sometimes go off and play in other rooms. They also play hide and seek or video games. They sometimes play a game called "Ride the Wild Jeff-beast." He also said he'll sometimes give them piggyback rides and they "have back massagers." Miller said he felt like if something was bothering the girls, "they should say that they were uncomfortable," court documents show. He said that it was okay if they didn't and said, "I’m not trying to say that as a negative, I just mean, I try to operate in that, the old swimsuit…rule, you know. Don’t touch anybody where the swimsuit covers.” He also said if anything made someone uncomfortable, that's legitimate. When asked if the massages were on top of or underneath the clothes, court documents show he said, “I…thought on top. Now you’re making me try to remember. I’d…I…think she would say something if I was not on top of the clothes…maybe on back, I guess possible.” He claimed he would always make sure they were comfortable with whatever was being done, and denied ever touching the accusers in their genitals. “I sure hope not. I don’t believe so, no. No," he said. When they asked if he was doing it for some kind of sexual enjoyment, he replied, “Lord, I hope not.” The accusers' parents said they were not aware he was using massage items on their children. Miller (R - District 16), was elected in 2011 to represent the near southeast, south and southwest sides of Indianapolis on the City-County Council. He was re-elected in 2015. His district includes Fountain Square, the Old Southside near Meridian, Mars Hill on the west side, IUPUI, UIndy and White River State Park. The City-County Council is the chief legislative body for the City of Indianapolis. Miller is now in police custody. The court has set his bond at $10,000 surety. Marion County Republican Central Committee Chairman Jim Merritt said he expects to accept Miller's resignation on Monday. After that happens, a special election will be held to fill Miller's post. Judge Mark Stoner secured himself from the case, and a special judge will be selected. Councillor Jeff Miller resigning is best for the citizens of the district, the institution of the Council, and the people of Indianapolis. — Michael McQuillen (@mike_mcquillen) November 17, 2017

  • Woman who plotted to kill Noblesville attorney sentenced to 27 years in prisonWoman who plotted to kill Noblesville attorney sentenced to 27 years in prison

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A woman accused of plotting to kill an Indiana attorney learned her punishment Friday. A federal judge sentenced Renee Perillo to 27 years in prison, calling the case "diabolical" and "almost something that you would read in a novel." U.S. Attorneys said Perillo and her son, Richard Perillo, tried to kill Rebecca Eimerman, an attorney from Noblesville, in a bizarre murder plot. According to testimony, the pair waited in the back of Eimerman’s car in May 2015 with a gun and a syringe filled with a lethal dose of the drug succinylcholine, which is used in hospitals to paralyze patients. Eimerman’s husband found them, holding them until sheriff’s deputies could arrive. Other items found in the car included gloves, a shovel, saw, hammer, disguises and a tranquilizer gun. Renee Perillo lived in Florida while her son lived in Nevada; both traveled to Indiana to carry out the plot, investigators said. Both Perillo's bonded out of jail and went on the run shortly after their initial arrest. U.S. Marshals later picked them up out of state and charges were transferred from state to federal court. Eimerman spoke to FOX59 in 2015, just as a grand jury moved to indict both Renee and Richard Perillo. "I'm hopeful that justice will be served," Eimerman said then. "We have to take new safety precautions, it’s a new way of life, but we’re getting through it." In court Friday, Eimerman delivered an emotional statement forgiving Perillo for the crime. "I forgive you. That's your gift from me...and I'm moving on," Eimerman said. Perillo was sentenced per the terms of a plea agreement she signed earlier this year. She later tried to back out of the deal, but a judge ruled it would move forward. She was sentenced on two of four counts, for conspiracy to commit kidnapping and murder-for-hire. The murder-for-hire charge came after U.S. attorneys said Perillo wrote to a federal agent, who was posing as a hit man, from jail and asked him to murder Eimerman. In court, Perillo turned to Eimerman, saying "I sincerely apologize." She also told the judge, "I'm not saying I'm entirely innocent, I should never have gone to her property," but later claimed "never was I going to kidnap her at all." An assistant U.S. attorney questioned the sincerity of Perillo's apology, telling the judge "the defendant is not a victim here." Instead, he told of how Perillo's actions changed the victim's life, saying "she was just doing a job - a job she loved - and it literally nearly killed her." Both an attorney for Perillo and the victim herself questioned whether Perillo was coerced into her actions. According to testimony, the case stemmed from a divorce battle between Perillo's ex-boyfriend, Dr. Arnaldo Trabucco, and his ex-wife, who the victim represented in court. According to court documents, Trabucco is a urologist who formerly practiced in Columbus, Indiana. He has not been charged in connection with the case. Eimerman asked Perillo directly to give agents more information about the doctor. She also said she was sorry Perillo's son was caught up in the plot, saying "he deserved a mom." Richard Perillo, who spoke to FOX59 in 2015 and denied the plot, has since pleaded guilty in the case. He awaits sentencing. Richard Perillo

  • ‘Grundy Crew’ leader arrested amid FBI raids to crack down on guns, drugs, gang activity‘Grundy Crew’ leader arrested amid FBI raids to crack down on guns, drugs, gang activity

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Federal Bureau of Investigation led a series of coordinated raids around Indianapolis Friday. The raids included federal, state and local resources throughout the city. More than a dozen SWAT teams took part in the operation, which focused on tracking down people involved in drug activity, gun trafficking and gangs. Richard Grundy III, a man investigators and prosecutors accused of leading a murderous Indianapolis drug gang, was detained by authorities as part of the sweep. Sources indicated to FOX59 News that Grundy was a target of the raids after his name surfaced as part of federal surveillance during a recent drug investigation. The raids started around 6 a.m. at several areas around Indianapolis, including locations on the west side and north side. Authorities were conducting warrant sweeps and working to break up local drug operations. Police blocked Central Avenue from 34th Street to 36th Street, flashing blue and red lights all around the Constitution Gardens Apartments. Residents there said they heard police call for one apartment in particular to vacate. The fire alarm blared through the building as residents saw officers all over the place. In a neighborhood off of 21st Street and Medford Avenue, another SWAT raid took place. Authorities put at least two people in the back of squad cars as local narcotics and FBI agents went through the home. Later on in the morning, SWAT teams raided again, this time at a duplex in the 2200 block of Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard. At least one man was detained. The man's sister told FOX59 News she didn't believe brother would be involved in gang activity. "My brother has a hard head, but he’s a good guy. It’s all about his kids and his family," Tenisha Williams said. Williams added she was happy her brother's young children weren't home during the time of the SWAT hit on the house. Sources tell FOX59 News that at least seven people including Grundy were transported to the FBI Headquarters Friday afternoon: Ezzell Neville Thomas Bullock Undrae Moseby Michael Hyatte Dion Gregory Madison Robert Lisenby Daona Gholston Lance Hatcher David Carroll All of them are listed in the Marion County Jail and were brought in by U.S. Marshals. At least two are believed to be associated of Richard Grundy. In September, Grundy avoided jail time after murder charges filed against him were dropped. At one time, Grundy was charged with leading a major drug conspiracy ring that was investigated for its role in more than a dozen unsolved murders. Since the arrests of Grundy and his associates in the winter of 2015, several cases have been dismissed due to unreliable witnesses, other murder trials ended in acquittals and most of the co-defendants have pleaded guilty to reduced charges while, occasionally, picking up new criminal counts. Keirian Brown, the attorney who represented Richard Grundy during his recent plea agreement on state drug charges, said he was unaware of today’s developments. Along with the FBI, the sweep included the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and Indiana State Police.

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- A woman is dead after what police are calling a domestic dispute. Indianapolis Metropolitan police investigators were called to the 1100 block of W. 35th St., on a disturbance investigation around 12:30 a.m. They arrived to find a woman in cardiac arrest. She was transported in critical condition to IU Health Methodist Hospital where she later died. Police said the victim is a 34-year-old woman named Tasha Allen. According to the Coroner's Office,  Allen was strangled to death. Police said the suspect is the victim's 42-year-old boyfriend, identified as Tarik Fields. Police arrested him on a preliminary murder charge. This is the second deadly domestic incident in just a few days. On Wednesday, a 21-year-old woman was fatally shot on Senate Avenue after a fight with a man inside a car. "It is unusual to see female victims of gun violence," Major Richard Riddle with IMPD said of the recent violence. "Unfortunately, many of the female victims we do see are in domestic violence relationships that turn deadly." The case remains under investigation.

  • $6,000 raised so far as teachers “camp” on bus to raise money for student with cancer$6,000 raised so far as teachers “camp” on bus to raise money for student with cancer

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – By the time Shelbyville Middle School principals and teachers headed back on a bus to the school parking lot, they’d raised around $6,000. The principals and teachers are spending the night on the bus. That $6,000 is all going to student Kiara Lee and her mom. This isn’t the first time Principal Ryan Mikus, his assistant principals and a few others have spent the night at the school. Lee is the school’s second student in less than a year diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Last year principals and teachers spent a day and a half on the school’s rooftop to raise money for Kory Stewart, who was diagnosed with the same form of leukemia last fall. “The same grade?” remembered assistant principal Kyle Huerkamp. “It was just complete shock when we found that out.” So this time, they swapped the #KoryStrong banner for one saying #KiaraStrong. “The people of central Indiana really came out to support Kory last year and we knew we wanted to do something for Kiara, but we couldn’t do the same thing,” said Huerkamp. “We had to do something unique for her.” They’ve been on the bus since 8 a.m. Thursday, moving from the school to downtown, back to the school in time for student pick-up and then to WalMart to hit the evening shopping crowds, before heading back to the school at night. The goal is to give Kiara and her mom as much financial help as they can. Kiara is in remission just a month after being diagnosed, but will still have chemotherapy treatments for the next 2.5 years to try to keep the cancer away. “It makes me feel like, I don’t know, like somebody cares and that’s really what I need through this,” said Lee. With all the support they received, Kory’s family is now paying it forward. Kory’s mom Lea Stewart is helping Kiara’s mom with her in-home chemo treatments, since she spent several months doing them for Kory. Now she’s determined to help draw in more donations for Kiara too, telling everyone she knows how they can support the family. “You need that support constant because whether it’s being up there or being here at home, you know, there’s times that you’re down, you know?” said Lea. “Because you’re seeing your child go through something that you never want to expect to go through.” That pain Kiara, Kory and their families feel is what’s inspiring these teachers. “We knew we were not going to be comfortable,” said Huerkamp. “This was not going to easy. But it’s nothing compared to the fight that Kiara’s got in front of her or that Kory has been battling for the past year.” Each drop in the bucket over the 30 hours is what will give each person hope and strength. “It just lets me know that everything’s going to be all right and I’m still going to be strong in the end of it,” said Kiara. The principals and teachers will stay on the bus collecting donations until noon tomorrow. You can also send donations to Shelbyville Middle School: 1200 W. Mckay Rd.

  • Revisiting The Trick Play Laughed At ‘Round The WorldRevisiting The Trick Play Laughed At ‘Round The World

    That ill-fated, humiliating fake-punt/trick-play thing was on October 18, 2015. Even then, on that night, we recognized it for what it was: an utterly baffling and yet darkly amusing sequence of events—an enigma wrapped in ineptness wrapped in a raw sewage fire of poor decisions. But it was an outlier of sorts at that time. An aberration. Certainly not the norm. It was half #WTF?/half #LOL! among Colts fans on Twitter that night, if memory serves. There was no panic. That was two years ago. Looking back on that debacle now, though, it doesn’t feel like an outlier at all. It doesn’t seem amusing, either. Quite the opposite, really. Two years later, re-watching The Trick Play now feels like a quick, terrifying glimpse into the…View Original Post

  • All-Female Exhibit Challenges Male-Dominated Art WorldAll-Female Exhibit Challenges Male-Dominated Art World

    One group exhibit features the artwork with first names like Frank, Rusty, Reuben, and Virgil. Another, pieces by Vernita, Elle, Sofie, and Nikki. So what’s the difference? A year-long series of solo shows at the Long-Sharp Gallery’s New York Project Space sprang from that question. The series concludes in Indianapolis with Athena Shrugged, Remix, running November 10 through December 30. The seven-woman exhibition includes all four artists who showed in New York—Constance Edwards Scopeletis, Jamea Richmond-Edwards, Sabina Klein, and Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. Hoosier artists Anila Quayyum Agha, Cagney King, Amy Kirchner, and Mary Pat Wallen have also been added to the mix. On November 11, the gallery will host a companion panel discussion with the artists on women in the arts. Shannon Linker, vice president of…View Original Post

  • Meet Butler Blue III, AKA Trip, On Game DayMeet Butler Blue III, AKA Trip, On Game Day

    The most popular Butler Bulldog wobbles on four legs, barks at the basketball instead of dribbling it, and doesn’t consider it punishment to run laps around Hinkle Fieldhouse. His name is Butler Blue III, but most refer to him as Trip. The university mascot’s game-day regimen starts with a brisk walk from his handler’s home in Butler’s Apartment Village, across the football field, and into a Hinkle back door. From a foot off the ground, everyone must look pretty tall and maybe a bit scary, but the 5-year-old English bulldog doesn’t seem to care—he poses with dozens of fans like the seasoned pro he is. As soon as he bursts onto the court, cheerleaders pet him amid a chorus of oohs and ahhs. But Trip…View Original Post
