Inside this stately Carmel home, a tragedy

Full story: The Indianapolis Star

In the elegant home she shared with her TV producer husband and their baby son, the once-outgoing Leanne Paulsen became a virtual recluse.

What is the point for the Star to print two days in a row that "she often wore jeans and a t-shirt around the house"? Don't most people? I see nothing newsworthy about that.

I'm not one to cry but....,I feel so sad for that child. I sit here and can't imagine doing that to a child(or my wife). I think I'm going to get sick. What a way to start my day.

Why would they describe her as a "triple threat" when it came to her talents. That paragraph alone seemed like I was reading something from MTV. Indy Star stop trying to be ghetto!

My prays are with her family and child.

It was just a quote from her neighbor posted along with other quotes the neighbor said.

I saw this guy being arrested! He looked like a bum. He was dirty and wearing dirty clothes, carrying a backpack. I thought the Carmel cops were getting him for being homeless in the wrong place. Then I wondered why it took three cars to arrest a bum...Kinda creepy now that I know why.

I am shocked and stunned at this news.

My prayers go out to her Mom and her sisters, as I fondly recall Leanne in The Ambassadors and in class, having talks at the dinner table with groups of our friends during the hot summer nights of 1985, her voice, her smile, and those good, innocent times.

My God Bless her Soul, and her little boy.

That was a terrible thing to say. You should pray for her, her child, and her husband. And while your at it, say a prayer for yourself.

Oh please - no one deserves abuse and no woman should take it 'obediently'. This story and their situation is too tragic for such a response.

The Star needs to put a filter to keep "white trash" from

How is it that an autopsy was able to be performed on her within only a day or two but most of the time in other cases we always hear/read that the cause of death is unknown until an autopsy is perfomed in 4,6,8 weeks or more??

You'd think that the Star would mapquest the residence. It clearly shows this home on the northeast of Carmel. Not the southeast.

It has already started again on this forum. For the past 3 days it's been nothing but "I feel so bad", "How could this happen...", balh blah blah. Get over yourselves already. Go outside and enjoy the sunshine.

In greenwood it is the norm, but maybe in that neighborhood it is isn't.

I agree! Amen. Now there are 2 bums connected to this story! No wonder you probably can't keep a woman you idiot ! And as the other reader stated....."Say a prayer for yourself!

My deepest sympathy to all of the family. From reading the Star it sounds like family lived locally. Why did they not go over to the house to see why they had not heard from her since December? Believe me, if I had not heard from my sister in 4 months and living in the same area, being aware of the abuse, I would have camped at her house until I knew that she was ok.

That's the difference between Hamilton county coroner and Marion county coroner. Plus the HC coroner doesn't have nearly the volume.
