Police are looking for more information regarding a double homicide Tuesday morning.

The Henry County Sheriff's Department and Indiana State Police were dispatched to a home in the 6000 block of North County Road 200 West around 1:30 a.m.

When authorities arrived on the scene they found two bodies and determined they were both victims of homicide. The victims have been identified as 38-year-old Ruth Webb, who lived at the residence, and 42-year-old Robert Morrow of Markleville.

Shortly after 7:30 a.m., officers found a man dead in a van in the area of CR 850 North and 300 West. He has been identified as 39-year-old Johnny Webb, of Middletown, who investigators say is the ex-husband of Ruth Webb. He suffered from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Detectives say Johnny Webb went to his ex-wife's home, shot her and Morrow, then took his own life. The investigation is ongoing.

The Henry County Major Crimes Team, including investigators from the Henry County Sheriff's Department, the New Castle Police Department, as well as the Indiana State Police are investigating the homicides.
