INDIANAPOLIS — A husband and wife found dead Monday afternoon in a house on the southeast side are believed to have been part of a murder-suicide. 

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and paramedics were sent about 4:55 p.m. to a death investigation in the 2800 block of North Sumner Avenue. That’s east of the South Keystone Avenue interchange on Interstate 65. 

An adult family member found the husband and wife dead in the house, said IMPD Officer Genae Cook. 

“Preliminarily it appears the one person took the life of the other and then took their own life,” said a news release from IMPD. 

The Marion County Coroner’s Office will release the names of the deceased after other family members have been notified, the release said. 

No additional details were immediately offered by police.

Anyone with information was urged to call the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-4877.
