Cumberland Remembers Double Homicide Victims

Vigil Held For Jeremy Crane, 21, Kyleigh Crane, 7

Cumberland residents gathered at a church on Wednesday to remember two young victims of a violent crime that rocked the close-knit community to its core.

Cumberland police said they are investigating the deaths of Jeremy Crane, 21, and Kyleigh Crane, 7, after their bodies were found inside Cathy Crane’s home in the 600 block of Woodlark Drive on Monday.

Cathy Crane said she discovered the bodies of her son and granddaughter when she came home from work.

“I am moving. I am not going back to that house ever again. I only went back there to get stuff to bury my son in,” Cathy Crane said.

The dozens of people who attended the vigil at Cumberland Christian Church said they wanted to show support for the grieving family.

"The community is hurting, and this church is part of the community. It’s our job to reach out and feel God's love right now,” resident Shelli Albright said.

Police said they’re following leads, but haven’t made any arrests yet.

Kyleigh’s father, Josh Crane, said he has faith in the Cumberland Police Department, RTV6's Eboné Monet reported.

“I know there are so many people, so many officers who are not sleeping. There are 24 hours in a day, but I know that they will not let whoever did this get away. I know that and I see it in their eyes," Josh Crane said.

Investigators said they believe whoever committed the crime likely stole the family’s Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 video game consoles.

Police said a reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in the double homicide.

Don Davis, owner of Don’s Guns in Indianapolis, has offered an additional $10,000 to a reward fund.
