Investigators believe the attacker entered the family’s home in a normally quiet neighborhood on the city’s northwest side at around 6 a.m. after seeing Davey Blackburn leave to go to the gym.

On Monday, police released grainy images of a possible suspect that were captured from surveillance video cameras at nearby houses, including one that was burglarized earlier that morning.

The couple moved to Indianapolis from South Carolina to found the independent Resonate Church in 2012. More than 2,000 people attended a memorial service for Amanda Blackburn on Sunday.
