The Suitcase Murder: Who Killed Larry Terry?

Larry Terry was well-liked among his neighbors on the southeast side of Indianapolis. Often seen around the neighborhood where he rented a room, Larry always seemed to have a smile for the people he encountered. It wasn’t until he went missing in March of 2019 that the rumors started. Terry, people claimed, had said someone wanted him dead.

Two months later, his body was found stuffed inside a suitcase less three miles from his home.

On Memorial Day, May 27th, a group of people were walking along the banks of the city’s Bean Creek when they spotted a suitcase in the water. Curious, they opened it and made a horrific discovery — Larry’s remains. The Marion County coroner ruled the 56-year-old had been killed by strangulation.

To this day, his killer remains unknown.

If you have any information about this case, please call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
