CONNERSVILLE, Ind. — Police are investigating after three people were found dead in east central Indiana.

Connersville first responders were called to a report of three people who were unresponsive in the 2100 block of Whitewater Boulevard on Saturday night. 

When they arrived at around 9 p.m., first responders found 51-year-old Joseph Counceller, 46-year-old Brian Collins, and 50-year-old Patrick White, all of Connersville, unresponsive. Medics determined all three had died, according to the Connersville Police Department.
