Police seek person of interest in Decatur Township double homicide
Indianapolis - Police are looking for a person of interest in a double homicide in Decatur Township.
Investigators want to talk to 56-year-old Michael L. Brown. They'd like to question him about the murders of 70-year-old Milton Lindgren and 73-year-old Eric Hendricks. The men were found dead Monday in their Middlebury Way home.
Police say both died of head injuries and there are previous reports of harassment at the home.
If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The friends of two elderly men found dead in their southwest-side home on Monday said they believe the men were killed because they were gay.
Milton Lindgren, 70, and Eric Hendricks, 73, were found dead Monday morning in their home at 9160 Middlebury Way. Police would not say how they were killed or how long their bodies had been inside the home, only that their deaths came by "violent means."
Patrick Beard, a friend of the victims, told 6News' Rick Hightower that he believed the men were targeted.
"I firmly believe it was definitely a hate crime. Milt was 70 and his partner was 73 and to go into someone's home and do something like that, it's just too coincidental," he said.
Police reports show that the men had their phone and cable lines cut twice in the past few months, and that anti-gay statements were posted on their front door.
Investigators said that while they do believe the vandalism was related to Lindgren and Hendricks being gay, that they didn't know if their killings were.
Beard's son, who also knew the victims, said he believes police will eventually reach the same conclusion he and his father have.
"I'm not a genius, but if someone's being harassed like that and fagot gets stamped on their door on a piece of paper, it's not that hard to connect the dots two months later that these two people are brutally killed in their home," Lee Beard said.
The friends said Hendricks was ill and confined to a wheelchair.
Police had not released any suspect information as of Tuesday evening. Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crime Stopper at 262-TIPS. Anonymous tips can also be submitted at www.crimetips.org
Please help if you have any information!
