INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Walter Morrow stood outside his house as crime scene tape and squad cars surrounded his mother’s home. 84-year-old Julia Morrow and her granddaughter, 30-year-old Inity Morrow, were found dead inside of a home in the 2600 block of North Dearborn Street Friday morning.
In a candid interview, Morrow told 24-Hour News 8 that he knew this day would come.
“I knew something would happen to my mother,” said Morrow.
Morrow adds his mother provided a safe place for his niece Inity to stay; however, he questioned the company she would bring to his mother’s house.
Police said a woman called 911 Friday morning. The operator could hear the woman screaming and things being slammed in the background. Police later found the two women dead inside of Morrow’s home.
At this point it’s unclear how the two women died. Police also say the relationship between the suspect, Quintico Goolsby, 36, of Indianapolis, and the victims is unknown.
Detectives say IMPD Officer Gregory Milburn responded to the home Friday morning and returned fire after Goolsby shot him, fatally wounding Goolsby.
Since 1968, Morrow has lived in that home on North Dearborn. Family members and friends called her a church-going woman who was a fixture in the neighborhood.
Morrow said his mother and niece’s alleged murders are examples that nobody is immune to crime in the city.
“You look at the news every day, you see all these things happening. Today was us, tomorrow it will be somebody else,” said Morrow.
