INDIANAPOLIS -- Police are searching for a suspect after three adults were found dead in a home on Indianapolis' east side Thursday morning. 

Homicide detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were called to a house in the 1800 block of Forsythia Drive around 10 a.m. 

The three people killed were Mark Higgins, 64, Keith Higgins, 34, Jessica Carte, 34.

The investigation started when one of the people didn't show up for work Thursday, police say. A relative doing a check on a family member found the front door open and found a man laying on the floor.

Police located a red Monte Carlo that was taken from the home Thursday afternoon. They have not said whether any arrests have been made. 




Police believe the murders are an isolated incident and there does not appear to be any threat to the public. 

Anyone with information about the crime or the location of the red Monte Carlo should contact IMPD Homicide Branch at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
