The job of State Representative in Indiana pays less than $20,000 a year and the money spend by both parties in the race for the District 73 seat in the state House of Representatives could pay that salary for more than a decade.
The money spent by candidates Steve Davisson (Republican) and Ryan Bower (Democrat) total more than $350,000 and that doesn’t include outside spending by the state parties which pushes the totals to easily more than $500,000.
According to statistics obtained by this paper from Secretary of State Todd Rokita’s office, Davisson began the race with $14 in his campaign account, but through monetary contributions that new number at the end of the campaign had grown to $249, 291.07.

On Monday, Nov. 8 at approximately 2:05 p.m., The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call for a welfare check at 1450 State Road 335 just outside of Corydon.

The 911 call came from a family member who had been contacted about an alleged ongoing domestic situation at the residence located at 1450 State Road 335 in Harrison County.

When deputies arrived at the residence they came into contact with one of the occupants, Larry Ray Lowe Sr., 62 years of age.

When they confronted him he was in possession of a handgun. Deputies were able to talk Lowe into putting down the handgun.

After speaking to Lowe, Harrison County Deputies located a body in the basement of the home and contacted detectives from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg to assume the investigation.

During the preliminary investigation detectives were able to find out that Lowe and his wife, Catherine Lowe, 46 years of age, had allegedly been involved in a domestic dispute for most of the day. The dispute turned violent with Lowe allegedly shooting his wife, Catherine Lowe, with a firearm.

Lowe was charged with Murder and incarcerated in the Harrison County Jail awaiting his first court appearance.

This investigation is continuing.
