Man shot to death on east side

April 14, 2011

A man found dead Wednesday afternoon in a home on the east side of Indianapolis near Brookside Parkway and Rural Street has been identified as 28-year-old Bobby Ford. Ford’s body was discovered after his girlfriend repeatedly tried calling him. Worried, she sent her father to the house, where he discovered the back door had been kicked in. Inside, he found Ford dead of an apparent gunshot wound. Ford, a father of a 2-month-old and a 3-year-old, recently purchased the home and was renovating it.
