Woman, 3 children found dead in S. Calhoun St. homeBy Amanda IaconeThe Journal Gazette
Police found the bodies of a woman and three young girls in a South Calhoun Street home early Tuesday morning after receiving a report of suicide threats.
Fort Wayne officers arrived at 4122 S. Calhoun St. shortly after 5 a.m. and found a man standing on the front porch of the home. The man did not speak English, and police only knew that there was a problem inside, police said.
Officers entered the one-story gray house and found the bodies, and medics pronounced them dead at the scene.
The unnamed man was taken to police headquarters for questioning by a Spanish-speaking detective, police said. During the early portion of the interview, police learned some type of domestic dispute had occurred at the home, but police refused to confirm the relationship between the man in custody and the dead woman.
Neighbors said a man, his wife and three daughters lived in the house. The neighbors were not aware of any problems with the family, adding that two of the girls were too young to be attending school, while the oldest girl was elementary-school age.
At 10:15 a.m., police were still milling about outside the home and had not re-entered the home to continue their investigation. The crowd of interested onlookers continued to grow all morning.
No names had been released by 10:15 a.m.
The investigation was happening on South Calhoun Street less than a block south of the school bus stop where 10-year-old Alejandra Gutierrez was headed Thursday but never arrived. Despite the close proximity, police do not believe the Tuesday morning events have anything to do with the ongoing search for the missing girl.
Additional information, as it becomes available, will be posted at www.journalgazette.net later today.
