Coroner IDs remains found at Herb Baumeister’s Fox Hollow Farm estate



Noblesville, Indiana – The Hamilton County Coroner’s Office has identified the human remains discovered at the former residence of Herb Baumeister, who is widely regarded as Indiana’s most prolific serial murderer.

The DNA sample that was given last year matched the human remains that were found in 1996 from Fox Hollow Farm, Baumeister’s Westfield estate, according to a release issued by Coroner Jeff Jellison on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old Allen Livingston, who was reported missing from Indianapolis in 1993, was found to have left behind these remains.

“The identification of Allen Livingston was the result of the dedication of many forensic experts working collaboratively in an effort to identify nearly 10,000 human remains recovered from Fox Hollow Farm,” Jellison said.

When Baumeister committed suicide in 1996, he was a suspect in a slew of murders. Baumeister founded the Save-A-Lot thrift store network in the area. Authorities think that in the 1980s and 1990s, he killed young men by luring them to his Westfield house and killing them there.

The Doe Network claims that Livingston vanished on the same day as Lafayette resident Manuel Resendez, one of Baumeister’s known victims, had his body discovered buried on the farm.

When the bones were retested, the total number of males whose DNA profiles were identified in the house in 1996—11—may have increased to about 25 men, according to a report released by authorities in November.

“I would like to thank the entire team of law enforcement and forensic specialists that have come together to support this effort. A special thanks goes to the hardworking people at the Indiana State Police Laboratory whose expertise in DNA led to the identification of Allen Livingston,” Jellison said in a release.
