Some new details have emerged regarding the incident where workers found a woman in her basement in Indianapolis Monday morning. The IndyStar shared the latest information on Oct. 28.
Authorities have not released the woman's name, but have indicated she is 83-years-old. Workers found the woman in her Indianapolis basement after hearing some noises in the home. The construction workers had been doing a siding project on the home, and believed the woman was gone for the day. They had initially arrived to see the door ajar, but they got no answer when they called into the house. They went ahead and started working, but went to investigate when they heard something in the basement.
The workers found the woman in the basement in her Indianapolis home, with duct tape over her mouth and rope binding her to the chair. The woman did not appear to have any life-threatening injuries, but it is believed she may have been restrained for up to two days. She is currently hospitalized.
Lt. Chris Bailey indicates that the woman is a bit confused over exactly what transpired, and they hope after doctors work on her she will be able to provide a bit more information. There are items missing from the home, so it is believed that the intruders tied the woman up so they could proceed with robbing her. Reports indicate that so far she has not been able to provide a description of the person or persons who came into her home.
The workers found the woman in her basement in Indianapolis around 11 a.m. Monday morning and they immediately called police. While it seems she will likely be okay, this story could have had a very different outcome had the workers not been slated to be at the home on Monday.
