Family hit by tragedy faces yet another

INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis woman whose husband died last February is now dealing with the house fire death of one of her daughters.

After Donnetta Waling’s husband died last February from cancer, neighbors rallied behind her, buying her food, shoveling her driveway and helping her in other ways.

Waling’s disabled 35-year-old daughter, Janice Waling, was killed Monday night when a fire hit their home.

Waling’s other daughter, 22-year-old Audrey Waling, had tried to save her sister. She was listed in serious condition at an Indianapolis hospital.

Man’s body to be exhumed for autopsy

Cary Owsley’s sister and son have questioned whether his death was a suicide. The 49-year-old Columbus man died last April from a gunshot wound to the chest.
