Indianapolis killing of mother, son may be related to money, police say

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): A sheriff says investigators believe a dispute over money from a family trust led a man to fatally shoot his niece and her young son in their suburban Indianapolis home.

Boone County Sheriff Mike Nielsen says the trust involved millions of dollars and had been a lingering issue the last few years.

Indiana State Police Captain Dave Bursten says 61-year-old Lucius Oliver Hamilton the Third was found dead of self-inflicted gunshot wounds at a hotel one block from the Indiana Statehouse on Wednesday afternoon.

Hamilton had been the subject of a manhunt since shortly after the bodies of 31-year-old Katherine Giehll and her son, 4-year-old Raymond Peter Giehll the Fourth, were found in their home in Zionsville, just northwest of Indianapolis. Boone County Sheriff Mike Nielsen says the bodies were found Wednesday morning.
