North Vernon Detective Ivory Sandefur states in a report that 42-year-old Elena Hardwick was found with Prozac and amphetamines in her system and that she likely set the home ablaze.

Hardwick, 72-year-old Helen dean, 23-year-old Erika Hardwick and 18-month-old Hunter Hardwick all died in the fire.
