Two elderly gay men were murdered in their Decatur Township home recently. Their bodies were found inside the house by a family friend.
About a week ago, the same friend came by to check on 70-year-old Milton Lindgren and 73-year-old Eric Hendricks. He first thought they left for vacation but became suspicious after coming by again Monday morning. After making entry into their home he found them dead.
Despite a neighbor claiming the victims suffered harassment in the past, police are not sure about a motive for the murders. They are looking at all possibilities.
"Their lifestyle obviously is something that has to be looked at."
Lindgren was active in several LGBT organizations. While local gays and lesbians refer to the two as a couple, WTHR is reporting that the two men were not in a relationship.
