Four bodies pulled from a pond have been confirmed as those of a father and his three children who went on a fishing trip and were missing for a week.
The body of 27-year-old Kyle Moorman was found in a body of water near Bluff Road and Troy Avenue in Indianapolis Tuesday night, according to Fox 59.
About five hours later, around 1:15 a.m. Wednesday, fire department divers recovered a vehicle matching the description of the black Saab in which Moorman was last seen. Three children were found dead in the car.
The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified her as Kyle Moorman II, 5; Kyannah Holland, 2; and Kyran Holland, 1.
The cause and manner of her death have not yet been clarified.
Moorman took his children to the pond on the evening of July 6, and his cell phone was last active at 12:48 a.m. the following day, his loved ones said. Family members searched the section of the pond for several days, as some expressed frustration that investigators appeared not to have checked the area earlier.
“We were alone out here,” Moornman’s sister, Mariah Moorman, told the TV station Monday night.
Moorman’s aunt, Gloria Hamblen, said: “Nobody (will) help us”.
Meanwhile, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Deputy Chief Chris Bailey insisted officers were trying their best on the case.
“These are answers we may never have the answers for, but I guarantee you the detectives working behind me will do whatever it takes to bring answers to this family and our community,” Bailey told Fox 59 at the crime scene .
TV station crews said they saw verbal altercations between Moorman’s family and police officers during the course of the search.
The Moorman family went so far as to offer a $10,000 reward for information leading to the whereabouts of Moorman and his children.
