INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two people of interest are being questioned in connection to the murder of Amanda Blackburn, the pregnant pastor’s wife attacked in her Indianapolis home last week,
sources within the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department confirmed to 24-Hour News 8.
The two people being questioned were not called suspects, and no arrests have been made.
Surveillance images captured the suspect in the case, but the photo is hard to make out.
Detectives are hoping DNA evidence helps solve the case.
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.
