    On Saturday, March 14, at approximately 10:22 a.m., the Scott County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call of an alleged possible suicidal subject at 829 East Harrod Road near Austin.
    When a deputy arrived he was met by family members at the home. The family members told the deputy of a possible death inside the home.
    As the deputy entered and began to investigate he noticed a deceased person. He then did a cursory search of the rest of the residence for injured persons. After that the deputy secured the scene and contacted detectives and crime scene investigators from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg to come to the scene.
    Once at the scene, detectives and crime scene investigators began their investigation. They entered the home and located three bodies.
    The bodies were positively identified by the Scott County Coroner’s Office as, Claude Campbell Sr, 57, Connie Campbell, 58, and Claude Campbell Jr, 35, all of 829 East Harrod Road, Austin.
    The three deceased are husband, wife and son. The bodies were located in different rooms within the home and preliminarily it appears as all three of the bodies contained gun shot wounds.
    According to the police report, at this time it is too early in the investigation to determine exactly what happened in the home. However, investigators believe the crime scene is allegedly contained totally in the home and the alleged  person/person’s responsible for the shootings is/are deceased in the home.
    There is no further information available at this time.
