LEXINGTON, IN (WAVE) - A man and woman are found shot to death in a Scott County home. 

A family member made the discovery Monday night at a mobile home along State Road 356 in Lexington.

Family said the home owner, who was a mother of three, and her friend, who family said she was helping out, are the two victims. 

The Scott County Sheriff said they have conducted several interviews and are currently following up on some good leads.

Alyssa McCurry said she talked to her aunt, Michele Brewer, 46, every day, but Monday was different.

"She always answers my calls, that day she wouldn’t answer all day and I just had a bad feeling," McCurry said. 

McCurry went to Brewer’s home around 8 p.m. and that’s when she made a terrible discovery.  Her beloved aunt was dead, shot multiple times.

"You would have to be a monster to actually want to hurt Michele, she was a great person, I don’t know," McCurry said. 

Brewer wasn’t alone. The sheriff said Willie Bowling, 51, was also pronounced dead at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds. 

Rochelle Copeland, Brewer's niece, said the two were close and she was giving Bowling a place to stay, just as she would for anybody. 

"They were best friends, he was out here with her on Sunday for Easter as well," Copeland said. "He was always doing stuff for her, feed her dogs what not, if she was not at home, anything that she needed he was there for her, they were truly best friends." 

Scott County Sheriff Dan McClain said it’s not clear why these two were targeted. He said there was no forced entry at home and nothing appeared missing.

"Obviously, I would suggest that everyone be vigilant, be aware of who is in your surroundings, when you are out and out, if there is anything that looks unnatural or out of place to you, please report it to the sheriff’s office or state police," McClain said. 

With two people dead and no arrests, neighbors are concerned.

"Very uncomfortable, it’s getting closer, that worries me," neighbor Steven Lucas said. 

The family said they don’t know how to feel either. 

You find out that one of your loved ones is gone and you are trying to grieve, but at the same time, you have all these questions, all these emotions, you don’t know whether to be sad, mad, scared for your own self. There’s so much going on, I’m just kind of numb right now," Copeland said. 

The sheriff is asking anybody with information about this crime to call the tip line at 812-752-7898.

McClain said they currently do not have any suspects or a motive in the case.
