Amanda Blackburn's neighbors look for answers

INDIANAPOLIS -- As police work to track down Amanda Blackburn's killer, community members took to the streets Saturday to pass out flyers. 

The pregnant mother was murdered in her northwest side home Tuesday morning, and neighbors said they have not felt safe since. 

Neighbors said they are frightened and sad, but also vigilant. 

They came together to hand out Crime Stoppers flyers. The flyers ask "Who killed Amanda Blackburn?" 

Police said the 28-year-old pregnant other was murdered in her home by someone who was likely trying to burglarize the home.

Police said the murder is likely connected to a burglary that happened about two hours earlier just a few houses down. 

Police say they have seen who killed Blackburn, but they don’t know their name, since it was from a surveillance camera.

The person police are looking for is a black man with medium-to-light complexion, slim-to-medium build, between 5-feet-4-inches and 5-feet-9-inches tall. He was wearing light pants with a two-toned hoodie -- the jacket part was suede and the hood was lighter.

The alleged killer drove a dark-colored SUV and was seen on video leaving the area. Multiple TVs were stolen, and believed to be transported in that SUV.

Police haven’t released the photos or videos of the suspect, but are asking for anybody who knows anything to call 317-262-TIPS (8477). Police said they will release the photos of the suspect in the "near future."
