Police work to unravel what caused deaths of woman, 2 children in southern Indiana

Park blocked off during investigation

NEW ALBANY, Ind. - More questions than answers remain a day after the bodies of a woman and two children were found in a creek at a park in far southern Indiana on Wednesday afternoon.

New Albany police identified the people Thursday as Jamie Clutter, 35, her 10-year-old son Brandon Clutter, and her six-month-old daughter, Katelyn Clutter, WHAS-TV reported.

New Albany police blocked off Binford Park as they investigate what they believe to be a homicide. Investigators did not release much information in the case Thursday morning.

A passer-by noticed a body in Falling Run Creek about 3 p.m. and called police. When investigators arrived, they found the bodies of a woman, a child and a toddler in water that was a little more than a foot deep.

WHAS-TV reported that police removed a car from the park, but there was no indication if the car is linked to the deaths.

Autopsies were being performed in an effort to find out what caused the deaths.

Police have talked with people who live nearby. Neighbors told WHAS that the discovery shocked the community.

New Albany police Maj. Keith Whitlow said Wednesday that there were no obvious signs of foul play.
