— A few days after a man was found dead inside a dutch-style house in a suburban Indianapolis suburb, authorities in that state say they have located the man’s mother, who was in the home when the man was discovered.
Authorities in the state of Indiana say that on Saturday night, they were called to a home on the 700 block of Pemberton Road in Danville, where they found the man in the backyard and discovered he had been shot.
The man’s body was discovered at around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday by two people who had been outside with their children, authorities said in a statement on Sunday night.
A neighbor who was also in the house when the shooting occurred called 911 and was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries, authorities told ABC News.
The homeowner told police that the man had been at his house for about three weeks, and that he had a large, rectangular box with a number of holes cut in it.
Authorities said the homeowner and a relative of the victim told investigators that they had been in the residence several times in recent months.
Authorities told ABCNews.com on Sunday that the home is owned by the family of a woman whose husband, John Paulus, has been charged with the murder of a former neighbor.
A search of the home was conducted on Saturday but no trace of the man or the body was found, the statement said.
A preliminary investigation determined that the woman’s husband, who is also being held in lieu of $250,000 bail, had not been in contact with the man, authorities wrote in the statement.
Police did not release the names of the woman or her husband.
