A former Hanover resident was one of the victims in what Indiana State Police officers are describing as a double murder-suicide.

The bodies of Robert Eugene “Bobby” Morrow, 42, of Markleville, and Ruth Webb, 38, Middletown, were found by Indiana State Police shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 9, at the woman’s home outside of New Castle in Henry County.
Each had suffered fatal gunshot wounds.
State troopers also discovered a white van near a country intersection in Henry County. Inside the van was the body of Johnny Webb, 39, the ex-husband of Ruth Webb.
He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to reports.
Johnny Webb is believed to have shot both Morrow and Ruth Webb. The investigation is on-going.
Morrow was born in Anderson and was raised in Jefferson County.
After high school, he worked with his father at Jacobi Sod Farm, then worked for B&B Groundworks before beginning his own company, Morrow’s Erosion Control.
He had lived for five years in Tennessee and in Markleville for the past four years. He was a member of Grace Baptist Church in Madison.
Calling at the Morgan and Nay Funeral Centre in Madison today (Saturday) will be from 4 to 8 p.m. and on Sunday, October 14, from 1 p.m. until the funeral service at 2 p.m. Pastor Michael LaFountain will officiate at the service.
Burial will be in Grandview Memorial Gardens near Madison.
Memorial gifts may be arranged through the funeral home staff to benefit the Robert “Bobby” Morrow Memorial Fund.
