    August 30, 2012 No comments

    Indiana State Police Detectives are investigating the death of a father and son found inside their rural Putnam County home Wednesday afternoon.

    The victims have been identified as 40 year old Kevin Boatright and his 14 year old son, Jeremy Boatright.

    Officers say a family member went to the Reelsville home for a visit around 1:35 pm and found the bodies located in the northwest bedroom of the home.

    Putnam County Sheriff’s deputies were first to arrive, but then requested assistance from the Indiana State Police after receiving information that Boatright was under investigation on allegations he had contributed to the delinquency of two female juveniles under the age of 18. 

    Based on the initial investigation there was insufficient information to result in an immediate arrest and the investigation was continuing.

    Preliminary indications are that Jeremy Boatright died of an apparent gunshot wound and Kevin Boatright died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
