WOLCOTT -- As a double-homicide investigation is underway in Wolcott, now we're hearing from the community.
News 18 spoke with two residents on Monday afternoon, both living just a few miles from the home of the incident.
One man tells us he's interacted with the two brothers multiple times these past few years. That's why this killing really came as a shock.
"They ran around with my grandson and you know, they would be in and out of the house but they were pretty decent kids, real decent," said nearby resident, Rick Dobbins.
Dobbins lives just around the corner from the Benyon boys' home. He said the brothers, ages 20 and 24 were nothing but respectful when coming over to visit his grandson.
"You know, you never hear kids anymore saying 'yes sir,' 'no ma'am' but these guys did," said Dobbins. "And my grandson would tease them, said, 'you don't have to say yes sir, no sir that's just Paw Paw, that's just grandpa you don't have to say all that stuff," said Dobbins.
Dobbins said it's been a few months since he's seen the Benyon brothers after his grandson moved out of town. It's been a hard few days processing their death.
"Man, it took my breath away," said Dobbins. "You know, I couldn't really believe it because, you know, you hear stuff all the time but, you know, never has anything ever happened like this since I've been living in this community."
Dobbins has lived in Wolcott for 19 years, not as long as Keith Hurlburt who grew up in the area.
"I've lived in the Wolcott and Remington Indiana all my life, I'm 30 years old," said Hurlburt.
Hurlburt didn't know the brothers personally but went to school with them growing up. As this incident is being investigated as a double-homicide, he believes the hardships of this pandemic may have played a role.
"Violence is increasing everywhere and maybe a lot of its due to this pandemic, with Covid-19 who knows," said Hurlburt. 'We all have our faults though, we're not perfect."
What lead to the killing is still under investigation.
