LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WISH) – The deaths of two people found deceased in a Logansport house have been ruled a murder-suicide.
Just before 4 p.m. Sunday, Logansport police officers were called to a residence in the 400 block of Hanna Street. After arriving on scene, officers found 24-year-old Brooke Day and 41-year-old David Rush dead from apparent gunshot wounds, inside the house.
Monday afternoon the Cass County Coroner’s Office completed autopsies of Rush and Day and continued their investigation.
