Elderly woman murdered in Mishawaka


Thursday morning a broken window at 84-year-old Lois Hickey's home prompted neighbors to call police. Once inside officers found Hickey dead her home on East Donaldson. Police now say they've found the victim's stolen car at the Courtyard Apartments. They've also found a unique clue inside her home.

An autopsy reveals she was beaten and stabbed. Metro Homicide Assistant Commander David Wells says detectives found more than the victim's blood at the scene.

"The person that did this cut themselves in some manner. Blood at the scene that we believe other than the victims." Wells said.

That blood has been sent to the Indiana State Police to be analyzed. As they wait for results. They're asking for your help. To be on the lookout for someone acting strange, who might have, as police describe it "a fresh injury that doesn't seem right".
