Police Ask For Information On Five Deaths In Franklin County

Last updated on Tuesday, September 27, 2011

(LAURAL) - Indiana State Police are continuing the investigation into the five bodies found inside a home in Franklin County Sunday.

Speaking at a press conference Monday night, Sgt. Jerry Goodin said they do not have any suspects or persons of interest at this time.

He said they are not going to release any information on the victims until the autopsies are complete and family has been notified.

Goodin said four of the autopsies have been completed with the final autopsy to be done Tuesday morning. He added the crime scene will be maintained until all autopsies are complete or "until we find out that there's no further evidentiary value for us to be there."

Earlier Monday, neighbors identified the victims as Roy Napier, his ex-wife Angela along with Roy's son Jake and daughter Melissa. The fifth victim was 43-year-old Henry Smith whose body was reportedly found at a nearby home.

Franklin County Sheriff Ken Murphy said the investigation is continuing and they need help from the public.
