Obviously the house was not "a safe place' as the father said. And since he had to get this younger daughter out of there and tell her he had better not catch her over there again, it was most definitely not a safe place. I am guessing it was primarily due to the behavior of the two mothers, who put their babies in harms way by the lifestyle they led-look at all the drug connections, one baby daddy already shot, drugs in the house where the two mothers lived, guns, they were living the street life and now the innocent babies are dead. I wish the young women living similar life styles would take a lesson from this but they probably will not. If only they would not drag their little kids into their crazy lifestyles. Very sad

in this economy the bad guys dont need any added incentive to rob you - how hard is it to rob two young single moms?- they were in the house with all that weed and all the trappings of a weed dealer - jewelry, flat screen tv's, cash - it was very naive of them to not realize that they were huge targets - they probably knew most of their customers intimately but when you are in that business you cant trust everybody and your business will eventually get out - they let their guard down - take heed folks when the economy goes down, crime goes up and the economy is going to get worse before it gets better!!

Heard America's Most Wanted offered to provide their assistance and wanted to go on the air this Saturday night with the details, and our local reps turned them down.

WTF?

Letís work together with the community and law enforcement agencies who are trying to catch the dogs who committed this horrible crime. Before anyone post a rude, disrespectful, or arrogant comment I ask that you do one thing for me before doing so......imagine if this was your brother, sister, mother, father or any close loved one. Even if you think this could never happen to you it still happened and someone lost their mother, daughter, sister, and a close friend and loved one. While you are welcome to post any comments as you want, please understand that this was horrible and that someone will never be able to see their loved one again. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL. PEACE IN THE STREETS......STOP THE VIOLENCE!!!

If marijuana was legal there would be far less drug-related crime. Look what alcohol prohibition did to stimulate crime across the U.S. Prohibition doesn't work, plain and simple. As long as there is a demand, people will step in to meet it, regardless of whether or not it is illegal to do so. If we make it legal, we remove much of the crime associated with this sort of business and these four people might be alive today.

Until young women stop sleeping with and supporting drug dealers then problems like this and he ones in the Phoenix will not go away. When they get capped everyone talks about what nice people they were.

Lesley Yarell know bad stuff was going on there. Did he call the police and tell them his daughter was into bad stuff? If he had his daughter and grandbaby might still be alive.

Women, these drug dealing losers don't care about you, they are using you.

I'm a supporter of police departments. Like em, trust em, stick up for em, know they have a hard job. But these kinds of houses are tolerated in Marion County. You can call and call and call about a drug house in this town, and they'll come and talk to you, but they won't arrest. Until we change the rules, this is what we live with. We have Judges that won't sentence. We have jails that won't hold onto the criminals they've got. And police who won't arrest. Don't tell me this isn't the case. I've called the police on my own tenants before whenever there's drug use in a house with children. Child Protective Services does nothing. The police won't arrest, even if I show them the damn crack pipes and you can smell the drugs. The "community" up there around 38th St has a mentality that what their menfolk are doing is victimless and they tolerate it. Drugs just get dealt and used around kids. Security cameras and safes and guns in residences. Nobody wants to snitch. The solution is a crackdown. At every level. Bigger jails, more arrests, longer sentences, harder work details, corporal punishment and swift removal of children from questionable homes. Those who would receive welfare benefits like Section 8 and food stamps should be drug tested every month and benefits quickly revoked for testing positive. Scott Newman should take a delegation to Singapore and study their system. We need a change or Indianapolis is going to become Detroit, E.St. Louis or South Central Los Angeles. The violence will only get worse. We permit it. Bottom line. Stop every car. Arrest every person in a car where an unpermitted gun is. Jail them and hold them. Don't let them out in 2 days. For crying out loud, the bad guys aren't afraid to be arrested because they're right back out again. Don't deny it. You can beat a guy senseless in this town and be out of jail in the morning.

I think the dad had a different "safe place" that he secured for the Yarrell girl. The Hunt girl then asked the Yarrell girl to move in with her at the Hovey Street address. The dad did not approve of this and wanted her out of there.

Can you imagine being one of these thugs right now???

The wrath they are going to feel when they are caught is going to be unlike anything for a long time in Indy.

What they should do when they catch them is just let them lose at noon on the Circle and let the public decide their fate.

The article was confusing, but I think that the house that this happened in was not the house where he put her "in a safe place". He said that he was not happy that Hunt had asked his daughter to stay there with her...that he had removed his younger daughter from the place, but couldn't make Andrea leave b/c she is an adult. It seems that this house is Hunt's place of residence and not the house he had gotten for his daughter to be safe. I am not trying to argue with you...just pointing out what I think from reading the article....b/c it is confusing!

They still haven't caught the Broad Ripple Ripper.

The cops can't catch anyone who isn't speeding.

Gotta agree with you on that!! If they would legalize it and tax it like they do cancer sticks then they could concentrate on the drugs that really f*** your life up! People don't go out and prostitute, rob, steel, or kill for some weed, that is what crack heads and meth heads do. What people fail to realize is, and I am a professional that knows many influential people in the city, and there are so so so many, lawyers downtown, doctors, dentist, and other white collared workers that smoke weed, I also know a few that smoke crack too, but the point is, if you go to your eye dr.,family dr.,your dentist, and then you go see your lawyer, 2 of those 4 professionals are more than likely smokein some weeds after office ours, if not wake and bake on the way to work. There are functional weed smokers, just as there are functional alcoholics, professionals that the majority of people would freak out about!! It's crazy but true!

Did you ever think that they want a lot of "crime?"

It's great welfare for cops, and all those cops let us know whose in charge and keep us subservient.

A tragedy for sure. A tragedy which should not be politicized by a sheriff looking to hang onto his job. "There's a special place in hell for you, and we're gonna help you get there"--Frakie "Bling Bling" Anderson (paraphrased) Puh-leeeeeeeeeeeeese. The first portion of the quote may be true, and the second portion should be a guarantee. Having said that, do not allow this awful situation to be used by a politician looking to improve his cosmetic standing as a tough, get outta Dodge before the sun sets, sheriff. Disgraceful.

If you read the story completly it says the girl moved there recently with the other female, that was not the home where he put his daughter up...

You make some valid points, but you are very naive if you think that the police would have done anything about it, had the father reported his concerns. The cops show up after the shooting is done. Even us white guys in the "burbs" know that.

This girl had a $4500.00 plasma screen TV in her house? In that neighborhood with no job? I am very sorry for her death but something very weird was going on here.
