INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - More resources are being added to the gas explosion investigation that killed two people, Department of Public Safety Director Troy Riggs said.
Riggs says heavy equipment and excavators will be brought to the investigation site in the Richmond Hill subdivision. The machinery is expected to arrive Friday.
When asked how long the investigation is expected to last, Riggs said he did not want to place a timeline on investigators. However, he did say he expected the team of local, state and federal investigators will work through the weekend.
Homeowners are now able to visit a recovery center at Southport Presbyterian Church . The center enables residents to meet with representatives from nine different agencies under one roof. The agencies include the BMV, Animal Control, American Red Cross, and the Marion County health Department.
Dozens of residents are still recovering, and two people were killed in an explosion in the neighborhood Saturday night. Dion and Jennifer Longworth were killed in the blast. On Friday, their family members released a statement to thank people for their support.
"The family of Dion and Jennifer Longworth would like to thank the firefighters, police and other officials; Dr. Edds, Principal Guilfoy and the Greenwood schools family; Indy Audio Labs; our church communities; friends, neighbors and the community for all the support and love for our families during this difficult time.
