3 bodies found in New Albany creek, homicide investigation launched

NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) – A homicide investigation was launched Wednesday afternoon after the bodies of a woman and two children were discovered in a creek that runs through New Albany's Binford Park.

According to Major Keith Whitlow with the New Albany Police Department, one of the children was under the age of two. The other child was an adolescent. Their genders were not released.

Whitlow said a person walking through Binford Park discovered one of the bodies in Falling Run Creek around 5:15 p.m. Wednesday and called police. Binford Park is off Graybrook Lane north of downtown New Albany.

Whitlow wouldn't say how the victims died or whether any weapons were found at the scene. He did say no vehicles were found at the park that appeared to be related to the crime.

As detectives, evidence technicians and the coroner worked the scene, the entrance to the park was closed with police tape. The park is home to several sports fields and a golf course and sits below a public housing complex.

"It's been nine years since we've came to this park on a homicide," Whitlow said. "We don't have many cases like this, especially multiple deaths and children."

The victims had not been identified and the cause or causes of death had not been determined as of Wednesday night. Police expect to have more information after autopsies are performed.

Anyone with information about this case should call the New Albany Police Department's anonymous tip line at 812-948-NAPD.
