Suspect in Ind. Killings Is Hospitalized

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ A man suspected of killing three people and leaving a 7-year-old boy tied up in a house with the bodies was on life support Monday.

Raymond Strominger Jr. apparently suffered a heart attack in a Pennsylvania hotel, police said.

Strominger, 39, was identified Saturday as a suspect in the deaths of his ex-girlfriend, her mother and a male friend last week in Indianapolis, Police Maj. Lloyd Crowe said. He said police were seeking an arrest warrant.

Strominger was found early Monday in a Hazleton, Pa., hotel after the manager heard moaning and called 911. Emergency crews that responded found several guns in the room, Crowe said.

The killer had forced open the back door of Angelic Sanders’ home in Indianapolis late Wednesday or early Thursday and shot Sanders, 29, her mother Delores Taylor, 54, and Martin Richardson, 28.

Sanders’ 7-year-old son may have spent more than a day bound and gagged in the same house where the victims were found shot to death, authorities said.

Strominger had dated Sanders before she ended the relationship earlier this year, and friends told police he had been stalking her, authorities said.
