DEKALB CO – The DeKalb County Coroner’s Office has identified the deceased in Monday’s shooting incident as Heather Lynn Harmon, 35, of Auburn, and Edward James Conboy, 37, Edon, Ohio (formerly residing in Garrett, Indiana).
The preliminary investigation revealed that Harmon and Conboy had been involved in a past relationship. Yesterday’s incident on Griswold Court began with Conboy forcing his way into Harmon’s vehicle at gunpoint. During that forced entry, shots were fired by Conboy, which is what generated the 911 call to the Auburn Police.
Detectives believe that Harmon (as the driver) was refusing to stop for police based on coercion. At the conclusion of the vehicle pursuit, Conboy shot Harmon and then turned the gun on himself.
This remains an active investigation. There is nothing further to release.
