INDIANAPOLIS — A homicide investigation in Indianapolis is believed to be connected to a double death investigation in Maryland, according to police.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers and emergency personnel were called around 7:45 p.m. Friday to the 5000 block of Brandywine Court on the report of a person down, IMPD Officer Genae Cook said in an email.

When they arrived, they found a female who was dead, Cook said. Investigators believe foul play was involved and possibly started as a domestic incident.

The identity of the female has not been released.

The case is also believed to be connected to a similar incident in Waldorf, Maryland, investigators say. Waldorf, Maryland is southeast of Washington D.C.

Detectives found the possible suspect in the Indianapolis case and another person dead in Waldorf, Cook said.

Charles County Sheriff's deputies in Maryland were called to a Hilton Garden Inn in Waldorf, Maryland, around 7:40 p.m. and found two dead people in a room, according to the sheriff's office.

Shereese Desire Curbeam, 36, of Waldorf, Maryland, was found dead from a gunshot wound, according to a Saturday press release from the sheriff's office. Daniel Clark, 47, of Indianapolis, was also found dead from a gunshot wound.

The incident in Maryland is being investigated as a murder suicide.

Investigators in Charles County have been in contact with IMPD, according to the sheriff's office.

Police in Indianapolis received a tip about the incident and contacted police in Waldorf after the tip was believed to be true, Cook said.

Detectives in both states are working to learn more information about the motive in the case.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-TIPS (8477) or Charles County Sheriff's Office Detective J. Feldman at 301-609-6474 or Charles County Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
