Couple found dead in their mobile home from murder-suicide

Roanoke, Indiana – The couple found dead in their Roanoke mobile home Thursday died in a homicide-suicide, presumably from a domestic dispute that turned violent, according to the Huntington County coroner.

Investigators concluded that 26-year-old Jeremy Stroh shot his girlfriend, 25-year-old Nicole Scheiber, multiple times inside their home at Castle Hill Mobile Home Park in Roanoke and then turned the gun on himself. He died from a single gunshot wound, Coroner Leon Hurlburt said.

When Scheiber didn’t show up for work Thursday, the Roanoke marshal went to the couple’s trailer at 15 Duke Blvd. to check on her. He found the pair dead at 11:30 a.m., about an hour after the shooting, Hurlburt said.

No autopsy was necessary because an Indiana State Police crime scene technician determined how the pair died based on their wounds and the physical evidence, Hurlburt said.

No one can be certain what led to the killing, but Hurlburt said the violence likely stemmed from a domestic dispute.

Scheiber’s death was ruled a homicide and Stroh’s was a suicide, Hurlburt said. More on Journal Gazette
