Suspect arrested in 2015 Indy quadruple homicide

INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man is in custody, charged in a quadruple murder case from nearly four years ago.

Homicide detectives finally got the break they were hoping for when new information was brought forward connecting the crime to Nicholas Dunn.

Terry Bettis, Sherri Taylor, Tiara Taylor and Davon Whitlock were shot to death in the front room of a house in the 3100 block of North Harding Street on March 24, 2015.

A family member found the bodies and called police.

"It is understandably difficult for families to have passage of any time, let alone years, without knowing how a loved one was lost to violence. It is correspondingly frustrating to law enforcement when we are unable to hold someone accountable for their actions," said Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry.

IMPD Chief Bryan Roach said detectives have been following leads and talking to neighbors to track down information that would lead to an arrest.

"Our detectives work tirelessly to bring peace and closure to families impacted by violence. These cases are always on their minds, no matter how long an investigation may take," said Roach.

Information from police and the prosecutor indicates Dunn entered the home in the early morning hours and held the three female victims at gunpoint.

He then had the women lure Whitlock, who was parked outside, into the home.

Dunn then allegedly shot all four with an AR-15 style rifle and fled the scene in Whitlock's car.

Dunn faces four murder charges in addition to Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Serious Violent Felon.

He is currently in prison for an unrelated matter.
