She wa pronounced dead at the scene of blunt force trauma. Two men, 20-year-olds David Summerlin and Ranear Kirksey, also of Cincinnati, were severely beaten.
For now, a judge has sealed the case so police can't release much information. but neither neighbors nor police seem to be too worried. For now, authorities say they do not want anyone to panic, especially as the Indiana State Police are helping out with the case.
Police tell Fox 41 News they hope to release more information in this case in the next 24-48 hours.
The two male victims are both still hospitalized. Kirksey remains in critical condition, and Summerlin has been upgraded to fair.
