Oh wow. I'll have to watch the news tonight for a recap
Warrants have been issued for the arrest of two people in connection with the Nov. 10th south side explosion in Indianapolis, and Eyewitness News has learned that one person is in custody.
Indianapolis Metro Police served the arrest warrants in a Mars Hill mobile home park on the Indianapolis west side. Police also served search warrants.
Bob Leonard is in police custody. He is a relative of Mark Leonard, who lived in the house that exploded. Leonard is the boyfriend of Monserrate Shirley, who also lived in the home on Fieldfare Way.
Eyewitness Brad Horton reported that a SWAT team arrived in his neighborhood Tuesday afternoon.
"They came down the road in two tactical trucks and pulled in this yard right here," Horton said, indicating the mobile home where Bob Leonard lives.
Horton said two officers arrested Leonard and they went inside the trailer looking for others.
While the operation was going on, Horton said he and other neighbors were told to go inside.
Horton reported that Bob Leonard had a white van parked outside his mobile home for nearly two weeks, but "it's been gone for a week and a half now." Horton said Leonard told him that the van belonged to his brother.
Police have said that Mark Leonard owns a white van. They also issued a plea for anyone who might have seen a white van in the Richmond Hill neighborhood on the weekend of the explosion.
In other developments Tuesday, Eyewitness News partners at The Indianapolis Star reported that a source close to the investigation believes that natural gas was intentionally released into the home on Fieldfare Way that is at the center of the investigation, and that a spark ignited the gas - possibly from a remote source.
Experienced private fire investigators tell Eyewitness News that the damage appears to be too extensive and far reaching to be the result of a natural gas leak alone.
This is a developing story that will be updated.
They said there was 2 months worth of gas let go in the house in just a few hours. I bet that white van was moving their stuff out because they said they can't find any of the things that were in the house.
And from a the Fox FB page, someone posted a link. It seems Mark Leonard and David Gill were womanizers who preyed on women and took their money.
Sounds like if he wasn't in on it himself, someone had a vendetta big time. Turned the house into a bomb basically.
