No sexual assault charges have been filed against either of the suspects, and Marion County prosecutor Terry Curry said today that "unless additional evidence is developed, at this point, there is... no sufficient evidence to file any sexual charges in this case."
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Chief Rick Hite said in a statement Sunday: "We are thankful to our federal, state and local partnerships that aided in the apprehension of the suspect in this terrible and senseless crime. All victims of criminal homicides deserve closure, and as a community we must send a collective message that violence is not option."
Police said last week a handgun had been found near the home Blackburn, 28, shared with her husband and son at the time of the Nov. 10 shooting. The weapon was submitted for testing at a crime lab to determine whether it was connected with the Blackburn killing, Lt. Richard Riddle said last week.
Pastor Davey Blackburn found his wife's body when he returned from the gym, authorities said. He told ABC News' “Good Morning America” that "Amanda didn’t have an enemy in the world. I can’t imagine any reason why. That’s why this has baffled us as much as anybody," he said.
"That’s why we’re trusting the investigators. They’ve been so good to us through this whole process, trying to keep us up to speed on what they have.”
