Construction workers found a woman in a basement in Indianapolis, tied up and bound, and authorities want to figure out just who was responsible. RTV 6 shared the details on Oct. 28.
The woman, said to be 83-years-old, was found Monday morning when construction workers noticed her house's back door open. The contractors had been doing work replacing the home's siding, and they initially just started working Monday morning when they saw no sign of the woman. Soon they heard noises in the basement and went to investigate.
The workers found the woman in the basement, where she was tied to a chair and had duct tape covering her mouth. The woman had been confined like that for at least two days, and she told police that someone had forced their way into the house, tied her to the chair and robbed her. She was unable to give a description to the police.
The woman found in the basement in Indianapolis is dehydrated, but otherwise seemingly doing okay. She has been taken to the hospital for further treatment and observation. Many can only imagine what the outcome would have been in this situation had the construction workers not been slated to do more work on Monday.
Anybody with information regarding the robbery and situation that led to workers finding the woman in the basement in Indianapolis are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477 or the police at 317-327-3811.
