The sight of mother and daughter in the same casket left Sheriff Anderson shaken. His pleas for peace brought applause.
"I mean, come on, people. Can't you hear what I'm saying? Can you hear what I'm saying? Enough is enough. When we start killing babies, when we start killing each other, enough is enough!" he said.
Anderson added: "If the evil people who did this deed should ever make to Heaven's gate, they will see a 'No Vacancy' sign."
Through their sorrow and anger, some saw opportunity, urging the community to clean up what's broken.
"We gotta go back in the hood and tell our boys who are standing on the corner that's tryin' to rob somebody, that's tryin' to carjack somebody, you know, ain't no life in this," said Dr. Byron Austin, minister.
Four men are under arrest and charged with the crime. The Yarrell family is grateful for the efforts of police and the community.
Andrea Yarrell's father, Lesley Yarrell, said he was grateful for people's support.
"The City of Indianapolis, everybody who's been there for me, I appreciate it and I love everybody, you know. And what people are now saying, you know, bad things about me and stuff like that, I'm here to bury my daughter and I put everything in the Lord's hands and the police and they did a good job and praise the Lord," Yarrell said.
Yarrell also said this crime has taken a piece of his heart.
Over 1,100 people attended the funeral services Monday.
