Police are now investigating the southside explosion that killed two people and damaged dozens of homes as a criminal homicide, and they are offering rewards for any information.

Gary Coons, chief of the Indianapolis Department of Public Safety’s Homeland Security division, said investigators have been trying to determine the cause of an explosion that killed a Greenwood elementary school teacher and her husband and damaged 86 homes in the Richmond Hill neighborhood, while the city also has led a recovery effort.

“At this time we’re here to inform you that we’re turning this into a criminal homicide investigation,” Coons said.
