INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD homicide detectives, with help from the U.S. Marshals Service, arrested a suspect for his alleged involvement in a double homicide on the near northeast side last month.

Two men, later identified as 30-year-old Dominic Patton and 35-year-old Jamel Perry, were found dead inside a home in the 2300 block of Adams Street, which is just north of Interstate 70 between Keystone Avenue and Sherman Drive, on Dec. 15, 2021. 

Officers made the discovery just after 5 p.m. while doing a welfare check. According to IMPD, the officers found the men unresponsive with signs of trauma. Medics pronounced both men deceased at the scene. 

The causes of death were multiple "sharp force traumatic injuries" and ruled homicides.

On Thursday, the U.S. Marshals Service arrested 27-year-old Jamie Wells in Illinois on an unrelated arrest warrant. He was returned to Indianapolis and booked into the Marion County Jail.

Anyone with information about the homicides is encouraged to contact Detective Jose Torres at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Jose.Torres@indy.gov.

Anonymous tips can also be made to Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-TIPS.
