Wagswoofs – Last Thursday, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department successfully apprehended a suspect in a homicide case that had remained unsolved for a year.
A press release states that Linsey Rose, 23, has been arrested for her suspected involvement in the murder of Maxine Congress, also 23.
Around 7 p.m. on November 1, 2022, officers were made aware of the Congress’ killing. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) received a dispatch to East 40th Street and North Emerson Avenue regarding a report of a person shot.
Police discovered Congress shot in the area and in a car. According to IMPD, she was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition. Congress was declared dead not long after she got to the hospital.
Earlier this month, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office filed a murder warrant against Rose, according to IMPD.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department’s violent crimes unit successfully located Rose on December 21st in the 5200 block of West 62nd Street. It was reported that Rose cooperated with the officers and was apprehended without any trouble. It was also revealed that Rose was found in possession of a handgun at the time of her arrest.
A man was initially arrested for murder by the police. However, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office decided to drop the case against him after both he and his girlfriend pointed fingers at each other for the shooting.
Rose’s involvement in Congress’ death remains unclear, as well as her connection to the case.
