    February 11, 2014 No comments

    Monday evening at 10:40, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting an
    alleged stabbing at 635 North Broad Street in Sullivan. Indiana State Police
    and multiple Sullivan County emergency agencies responded to the scene.

    Preliminary investigation revealed a small number of acquaintances had gathered
    at the Broad Street home. During the gathering and for reasons yet known to law
    enforcement, a fight broke out between the homeowner and one of the attendees.
    As the physical confrontation progressed, the homeowner is believed to have
    been stabbed multiple times with a pocket sized knife. The victim was
    transported to Sullivan County Community Hospital and later airlifted to
    Methodist Hospital of Indianapolis for treatment of potentially serious to life
    threatening injuries.

    Victim: Bruce E. Adams, age 56, of 635 Broad Street, Sullivan, IN.

    Arrested: William R. Grimes, age 28, Merom, IN.

    Preliminary Charges: Attempted Murder (felony)

    Battery with a Deadly Weapon (felony)

    Held in Sullivan County Jail

    Investigators worked into the early morning hours of today processing the scene
    and interviewing various persons. The investigation is still ongoing and more
    information may be released at a later time.

    The lead investigator is ISP Detective Mike Taylor. Assisting were ISP Crime
    Scene Investigator Sergeant Kris Fitzgerald, Trooper Erik Smith, Sullivan
    Police and Fire Departments, Sullivan EMS, Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office and
    the Sullivan County Prosecutor’s Office.

    Under the Law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is
    presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
