PROSECUTOR: Mom, children found in New Albany creek were naked

Posted: Updated:

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -- Chilling details emerged Friday afternoon in the case of a woman and her two children who were found dead in a New Albany, Ind. creek.

Authorities found the bodies of a woman and two children floating in a creek in Binford Park Wednesday evening.

Officers responded to the park along Graybrook Lane about 5:15 p.m. after receiving a call from people walking in the park who noticed what they believed was a body.

It turned out to be the bodies of a woman, an infant girl and an adolescent boy, a source familiar with the case confirmed. The mother was identified as 35-year-old Jaime Clutter, and she was found with her 10-year-old son, Brandon, and her 6-month-old daughter, Katelyn.

On Friday afternoon, Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson called the case both troubling and disturbing revealing today that the bodies were found unclothed.

Authorities determined that the two children were drowned. The cause of Jaime Clutter's death has not been determined. Authorities say the father, Michael Clutter, is cooperating, and they have not ruled out a murder-suicide.

"I have no reason to believe that we have an individual on the loose that would cause the public alarm or harm," Henderson said at a news conference.

Henderson said the Clutters moved here from Washington State to be part of a local Pentecostal church, and he said a Bible was found near Jaime Clutter's body but he emphasized that authorities have not drawn any conclusions about any religious connection to this tragedy. Authorities are awaiting toxicology results to determine the cause of death for Jaime. In the meantime, Henderson said, there are more questions than answers.
