Killer of Gay Senior Couple Gets 120 Years in Prison

Two years ago I posted about the murder of Milton Lindgren, 70, and Eric Hendricks, 73, who were found dead inside their Indianapolis home. Today, their killer Michael Brown was sentenced to 120 years in prison:

Indianapolis "Hendricks and Lindgren were found beaten to death at their south side home in October 2008. Brown fled to California but was later found and brought back to Indiana. Brown was caught using Hendricks credit cards in 2008. Investigators think Brown may have killed them when the fraud came to light."

The Indy Star reports: "Brown was arrested in California a month after the killings. He was one of two men who discovered the victims' bodies. But he wasn't arrested until police had pieced together a circumstantial case showing Brown had used Hendricks' credit cards to purchase furniture and other items and had changed Hendricks' mailing address in the months before the killing. At the time, prosecutors said Brown might have killed the victims to silence them after his fraud was discovered. Another key piece of evidence in the trial was the testimony of a jail inmate who wrote a letter to police reporting detailed information connecting Brown to the case."

  2. Thank God! Let's hope it comes without the possibility of parole. He can spend his entire life in prison.

  3. Hanged is right...how about drawn and quartered (always had a nice ring to me). We have become way too soft on beasts. We don't send rabid dogs to doggy daycare. Put 'em down; it's the RIGHT THING TO DO.

  4. I loathe capital punishment, have zero respect for nations that employ it, and under no circumstances would I either advocate or approve of it. It's barbaric and civilized nations have all stopped using it. The sentence seems about right as it is, assuming they got the right man. That bit about a circumstantial case raises my eyebrow.

  5. Tone:

    Do you equally 'loath' career criminals? How about people paroled who went and did the exact same thing that got them in prison as soon as they get out? It's a bad thing if someone is wrongly convicted and executed [extremely rare btw in the U.S., there are so many checks and balances]; does the thousands of people victimized [raped, murdered,etc.,] by paroled convicts bother you as equally?

    A guy in Cambridge,MA recently committed a home invasion of a Harvard professor and his 11 year old son. He beat the father, tied father and son up, then forced the father to watch him rape his son. It gets worse, he then repeatedly stabbed the father and attempted to decapitate him, after the boy started refusing to do the things he demanded. The father is in critical condition. The perp has been arrested and matched through DNA to another vicious rape of 2 college students [female] across the river in Boston. Assuming the Harvard professor dies, is this guy deserving of the death penalty? He's already been arrested and released for various other crimes at the ripe old age of 31.

    Barbaric my ass. It's barbaric not to use it.

  6. 120 years in prison sounds like sound justice to me. I just hope there's no chance of parole; does anyone know about that?

  7. Tone is right. Killing does not make right, even if it feels satisfying in the moment.

    Glad this guy got the sentence he deserves.
