JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- Police have identified two suspects wanted in connection with a fatal stabbing Monday morning in Jeffersonville.
55-year-old Robert Eader was found stabbed to death early Monday in his own apartment in the 300 block of Spring Street in downtown Jeffersonville.
Detective Todd Hollis says police are searching for 35-year-old James Washington and 25-year-old Dana Eisenback.
Washington is described as a black male, who is 5'10" and weighs about 300 pounds.
Eisenback is a white female. She is 5'7" and weighs about 350 pounds.
Police say Eisenback and Washington had known Eader for several weeks. Officials say both are from Louisville and they may be in a 2002 gold or silver Mercury Sable with Missouri license plates WG8-Z9H.
Jeffersonville police spokesman Detective Todd Hollis would not say why police named Washington and Eisenback as suspects. However, he did say they cut Eader's throat and stabbed him in the chest several times.
"I would consider them desperate and dangerous," Hollis told reporters late Monday. "They have known the victim for at least several weeks. The exact nature of their relationship, we haven't fully determined."
"Once I go to bed, I'm out," says Robert Monks, who lives next door to the crime scene. He did not hear anything until 5 a.m. "I heard him running up and down the walkway, yelling 'Oh my God! Oh my God!'"
He says his neighbor just found out their friend in apartment number two had been murdered. "Never hurt nobody," Monks says, "kept to himself. Real quiet. We watched TV together the night before. He'd do anything in the world for somebody if he could."
Police say there were signs of a struggle, and a broken window still had shards of glass in it.
Monks says neighbors think they know who did it, and police have reviewed footage from cameras at nearby businesses.
"I tell you what, there's a camera right there," Monks says. "If they did come out of there, it's right there on film."
Anyone with information is asked to call Jeffersonville police at 812-218-TIPS (812-218-8477).
