Deputy Durm of Marion County is led to the Crown Hill funeral home



Indianapolis, Indiana – The suspect in the killing of Deputy John Durm has been transferred from the coroner’s office to a funeral home as formal charges are anticipated to be filed against him in the coming days. Around 9:30 am on Wednesday, Durm is anticipated to be taken to Crown Hill Funeral Home. He will be escorted by other officers on numerous occasions, including this one.

The 61-year-old deputy will be escorted by colleagues from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office and will receive full honors for an officer murdered in the line of duty.

Police assert that as suspected murderer Orlando Mitchell exited a transport van after returning from a medical appointment, he wrapped Durm’s neck in the chain connecting his handcuffs.

According to court records, Mitchell and Durm tripped and fell to the ground while being recorded on camera. Up until he stopped moving, Durm fought to free himself from the neck chain. As he attempted to flee, Mitchell allegedly unfastened his restraints and crashed the van.

The prosecutor’s office anticipates formal charges being brought against his alleged killer later this week. When asked if they would seek the death penalty, they remained silent.
