UPDATE: Victim's family makes plea for suspects to turn themselves in to police

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- As the search continues for two murder suspects from Indiana, for the first time, we're hearing from the family of one of the victims.

In an emotional plea, they're begging John Carpenter and James Davidson to turn themselves in to police. In an update Friday evening, Indiana State Police say they apprehended Davidson near Marengo, Indiana at his brother's house. 

The last few days have been unimaginable for the family of Corey Harris.

"He went to pick up a friend of his and just the wrong place at the wrong time and he just got out of the car," said Ashley Harris, the wife of Corey Harris.

Harris was shot and killed at a home near Paoli on Monday, along with Nicholas Fields.

Another man, Daniel Smitson, was also shot, but survived.

Harris was married and had two young daughters, 10-week-old Kali and 6-year-old Kyrah.

"Kyrah, it's sinking in on her cause she knows she's never gonna see daddy again," said Ashley Harris.

For days, police have been searching for 35-year-old John Carpenter, and 36-year-old James Davidson of Marengo, both accused of murder.

WDRB was there when another man, 48-year-old Elbert Brooks, was arrested Wednesday in Marengo, also charged with murder. On Thursday, we caught up to authorities as they were searching the home of Carpenter's nephew.

Family members of Corey Harris are waiting for police to catch up with the two suspects on the run.

"I hope they rot in hell because I hate them. I really do. They took away a good man," said Ashley Harris.

"If anyone can do anything, and help get these men where they belong, because they don't deserve to be free," said Ronda Harris, the stop-mom of Corey Harris.

On Friday, authorities announced the would also like to speak to 54-year-old Anette Davidson, the wife of James Davidson.

They believe she may be hiding him.

"We are wanting her for questioning and we are seeking the public's help in trying to find not only Carpenter and Davidson, but Davidson's wife Anette as well," said Sgt. Philip Hensley with Indiana State Police.

As authorities spent Friday combing through John Carpenter's truck, discovered late Thursday on Dixie Road in Harrison County, they continue to ask for help from the public.

Family members of Corey Harris are begging the suspects to come forward.

"Please, please for these babies and our family, turn yourself in," said Lyn Harris, the aunt of Corey Harris.

If you have any information about the whereabouts of Carpenter, please give Indiana State Police a call.
