Micheal Chukwuebuka, Reporting 

INDIANAPOLIS authorities are investigating the killings of two women whose bodies were found around 150 yards away from each other in recent days, and who were killed in a similar manner.

Interim Chief Chris Bailey of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, on Friday, said there are similarities in the two homicide cases.

The bodies of Marianne Weis and Shannon Lassere were found days apart on Indianapolis’ far east side.

According to police and NBC affiliate WTHR of Indianapolis, Lassere’s body was found Saturday morning on N. Mitthoefer Road, across the street from where she lived, and Weis’ body was found on the same road on Thursday Feb. 1, 2024.

Police Capt. Roger Spurgeon, commander of the department’s homicide branch, at a news conference, also confirmed that they were found around 150 yards from one another.

“Both victims were killed in a similar manner,” Spurgeon said.

Stonix News reports that authorities are asking for the public’s help by checking their home cameras for anything suspicious as they do not know if the killings are connected.

NBC News stated in a report that both women are white and in their 50s.

“We don’t know if these crimes are connected at this point, and that’s why we’re asking for the public’s help.

“If you have info on these victims or know where they have been days before their deaths, we want to know,” Spurgeon said.
