February 2, 2011 by USA Post 

Indiana State Police, Authorities hope dental records will help identify a body found badly burned in a house where a gunman held police at bay for several hours Monday night. Randolph County Sheriff Ken Hendrickson said Tuesday he was convinced of the man – who shot two police officers before apparently setting fire to the house – had no intention of leaving the scene alive.

“We had all the resources we have to end this safely,” said Hendrickson. “He ended it the way it ended.” Two members Hendrickson were sent to the home of William T. Stein, 2251 N. Randolph County Road 350-E, about 4:45 p.m. Monday to stand as an employee of a local bank changed locks on the house, which had been the goal of foreclosure proceedings.

When members – Steven McCord and David Baldwin – knocked on the front door, two shots were fired through the door from inside. Members who have not been affected by the shootings, moved to safety and called for help.

At one point, two more shots were heard in the house. The sheriff said he was not certain that the man – whose body was recovered after the fire was out – had turned his weapon against him. More apparent financial difficulties, Hendrickson said he believed the man had relationship problems.

On the exterior wall of another building on the property, someone had spray painted the words “Thanks, btch.”

In addition to service Hendrickson, officers of the police department in Winchester, Indiana State Police emergency response, criminal investigations and hostage negotiation units crisis, and the Delaware County Emergency Response Team responded to the impasse.

When motorists encounter our soldiers on the side of an interstate highway in the United States, or the highway with emergency lights on their patrol vehicle, they attempted to warn motorists of an accident or slip-off future. In an effort to reduce secondary accidents, troops strategically space outside their patrol cars before the affected area. This is to alert motorists to reduce speed and proceed to the adjacent lane of travel, where the accident is. This procedure is also applied in the traffic backups caused by accidents, not only in bad weather, but throughout the year. or call 800-261-ROAD (7623). Another excellent source for the public and the media to check on the county snow emergency declarations is the Indiana Department of Homeland Security web site is frequently updated: Depending on your location, there may have downed power lines and tree branches or trees due to ice and strong winds. We must let our phone lines open for emergency calls. Motorists can access traffic and weather information by visiting the Department of Transportation web
