Murder-Suicide in Laporte County

Two LaPorte County residents are dead after an apparent murder-suicide.

Tuesday 47 year old Keith Metheny was found shot to death in St. John's United Church of Christ parking lot in Michigan City.

Police say it was suicide.

Afterwards Police attempted to notify his ex-wife, Angela Metheny.

She was found shot to death in their Rolling Prairie home.

This is the second double shooting this week.

On Monday two teens were found with gun shot wounds to the head at a house near Fish Lake in LaPorte County.

“Yes we've been inundated with murder suicides in LaPorte County lately it’s a very disturbing trend for medical professionals,” says LaPorte County Deputy Coroner John Sullivan.

Parents dropping children off for pre-school found Metheny's body in his car.

Church members don't know why Metheny drove from Rolling Prairie to the Michigan City church parking lot since he wasn't a member and he hadn’t been married there.

Meanwhile the two teens are still in critical condition at LaPorte hospital
