UPDATE: On Sunday afternoon, police identified the two deceased people as Dianne Cook, 65 years of age, and Barri Cook, 61 years of age, both of Avon.  The Cooks’ had been legally divorced since 2019; however, they were known to continue living together.

“The preliminary investigation indicates that there was some type of altercation in the home, and Dianne Cook was apparently shot multiple times by Barri Cook.  Barri Cook subsequently died from what appears to be a self inflicted gunshot wound,” said Captain Amanda Goings with the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office.
Hendricks County Detectives along with the Hendricks County Coroner’s Office are continuing to investigate this incident.

AVON, Ind.— A man and woman were found dead at a home in Avon Saturday morning.

Deputies with the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office were called to County Road 100 South to do a welfare check. That’s just west of Reagan Parkway. They say a family member had not been able to get in touch with a loved one who had also not gone to work for several days.

There, deputies found the man and woman. While the reason for their deaths is not known at this time, a press release says it could have been a homicide/suicide. Both the man and woman lived in the home.

If you have any information, call the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office.
