More details are coming to light in the murders of a Mt. Vernon couple on Saturday.
The couple was identified by Posey County Coroner Bill Denning, as John and Elizabeth Hall. Both were 75 years old.
The autopsies were completed on Sunday, with the manner of death being ruled a homicide.
John and Elizabeth Hall were found dead in their home on Mulberry Street by a family member on Saturday morning.
Now, the Posey County Community is left wondering how something like this can happen so close to home.
“Nothing like this has ever happened in our neighborhood, or none that I know of even in Mt. Vernon. But I was just totally shocked,” says neighbor Lynnetta Laubner.
Indiana State Police did uncover during the homicide investigation that items were taken from the residence.
They are asking anyone with information about the crimes to come forward and tell them or the Mt. Vernon Police Department.
“My heart goes out to them. Even when we heard what had happened, I just immediately started praying for the family. That God would give them peace and comfort,” says Laubner.
The cause of death has not been released at this time as the investigation is still ongoing.
