East Chicago Man Becomes Gary's 42d Homicide

11 Oct

By Ken Davidson



Still no word from Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson regarding the Indiana State Police Technical Assessment Team reports and the homicides continue to pile up.  An East Chicago man with an extensive criminal history was Gary’s 42d Homicide victim on Wednesday night.   The Coroner’s office has identified the victim as 41 year old Marlon Allen.  Allen was pronounced dead just after 9:00 pm last night.  It is unclear whether any arrests have been made in the case.

Gary residents have reported seeing a significant increase in police patrols in the past week.  As previously reported, one of the suggestions of the ISP Tac Team was to assign more officers and reserve officers to patrol.
