2 Women Found Dead In Car

Women Found In Car Outside Apartments

Two women found dead in a car on Indianapolis' north side appear to be victims of homicide, police said.

Officers were called to the Barrington Estates at 8700 Old Town Lane near 86th Street and Ditch Road just before noon, said Sgt. Matthew Mount.

They found Alisha Preer, 26, and Tonia Tinney, 28, dead in a gray Pontiac four-door car parked outside an apartment complex.

Police did not release the cause of death.

Neighbors said the area is mostly quiet, although several reported hearing gun shots overnight.

"I'm scared to walk my dog out here now because they were probably around my age, around 20," said Jessica Mallah. "I don't want to walk around alone now because I don't know what happened to them, if it was personal or just a random act of violence."

Mount said the women had gone out Friday night.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
