Deaths of woman, children found in creek remain mysterious weeks later

Authorities await toxicology tests on mother

NEW ALBANY, Ind. - Questions remain weeks after the deaths of a woman and her two children in southern Indiana.

The bodies of Jamie Clutter, 35, and her children -- Brandon, 10, and Katelyn, 6 months – were found in creek at a park in New Albany on March 13.

New Albany police spokesman Maj. Keith Whitlow said Wednesday that investigators don't have all the information they need "to draw any real conclusions" in the deaths.

When they were found, the Clutters were nude. They had moved in December from Aberdeen, Wash., to an apartment near where the bodies were found.

Authorities have said the children drowned, but the cause of their mother's death remains undetermined.

Floyd County Coroner Leslie Knable told The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., she's still awaiting results of toxicology tests.

In the days after the deaths, Michael Clutter, Jamie's husband, told police he came home to find his wife and children missing.

Michael Clutter said he doesn't believe his wife of 12 years took her own life and those of their children.
