TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Neighbors say Mill Drive and surrounding neighborhoods are fairly quiet and family oriented. The homicide-suicide that happened has really shocked them.
“You say it never happens in my neighborhood, it never happens here but a domestic, it can happen anywhere,” said neighbor Trent Richter.
Richter like many other neighbors just didn't expect it to happen so close to home.
“I had no idea that that had happened and it's obviously a surprising thing and we're just praying for those that are affected by it,” said a neighbor who chose not to be named.
The Tippecanoe Coroner Donna Avolt confirms Jason Moore shot his wife, Jane Moore multiple times.
The deaths were discovered after Tippecanoe County deputies responded to a call a 911 call at 50 Mill Drive in Lafayette early Sunday morning. News 18 learned one of their two kids made that 911 call.
Alec Argo is also one of their neighbors. He hopes this is the last time the neighborhood has to deal with such a tragedy.
“It'd be great if we could get to a point in our society where this stuff is no longer part of it,” said Argo.
