If I were a reporter, I'd go with naming the more "tender" occupation, it tugs at the heartstrings. Media manipulation there for ratings, "Aww, that poor underpaid teacher, she didn't deserve that. Good reporting channel 5!" That kind of dumb viewers manipulation.

And second, I got the feeling the husband might have been unemployed. Isn't that what Linkedin is, a networking type of hire-me site? Thus, not saying what the husband does because technically, he doesn't have a job description to give.

In regards to a possible meteor strike....
I believe there was one person who said they saw one coming in but nothing else. I have no source to give but it's in this thread.

Here is 2012 Fire ball sightings as recorded by The American Meteor Society. nothing on the night of the Explosion but plenty sightings in Indiana this month.
Just throwing this out there.

All kinds of conflicting info out there. I saw one that said soil was tested, and ruled out gas leak. Others are saying gas leak is still on the table.

As for the two dead, from what I gather, they were in one of the two half burnt out houses.

It astounds me that we still have no positive info on this and it's been, what, 4b hours already? Lots of different theories.

It kinda freaks me out that there is no 'official story' yet.

I dont believe a gas explosion is a possible cause for this, at all. Why? Because two houses suffered equal, total damage. These 2 houses were not structurally connected. If a gas explosion was the cause, I would expect one house to be destroyed and the surrounding ones suffering at least somewhat equal damage. This is not the case here.

No gas can explode between 2 houses like that, in open air. Even if that was possible, the debris and damage would most likely have been different than what we have here.

Perhaps I am missjugding this, but I would like to be convinced otherwise. I will go with a small meteor exploding above ground or the material of the houses compensating for the lack of a crater.

Ok thanks. I didn't know where the two casualties came from when all I've been hearing were nobody was in the demolished home at the time of event.

OK, I've found this update: indystar.com


12:20 PM -- Homeowner suspects faulty furnace
The owner of a house that exploded in Indianapolis says he wonders if a faulty furnace might have been to blame for the blast that killed two people and destroyed or damaged dozens of homes.

John Shirley told The Associated Press on Monday that he received a text message last week from his daughter about a problem with the furnace at the house the girl shares with her mother and her mother's boyfriend.

John Shirley says no one was home at the time of the explosion.

His ex-wife, Monserrate Shirley, declined to comment Monday.

Indiana real estate records show the house had been for sale for a year until it was taken off the market in March.


So there's that..... Now keep in mind that the house had been taken off the market & read this...

Riggs said investigators continue to treat the blast-radius as a crime scene, and they’re looking through the debris field for any potential clues.

Riggs said it appears so far that natural gas played a role in the blast, but it’s not yet clear whether it was an accident or whether it was intentionally set.


So.... Since this homeowner was out of town when the blast happened, could this have been intentional to try and destroy the house for insurance money?? hmmmmm


And keep in mind that another house exploded in that area a few days before. Could that have been the inspiration?

Also, the couple's bodies were found in the basement of their home.


An IMPD report Monday morning said Jennifer L. Longworth, 36, and her husband, John D. Longworth, 34, are presumed dead in the blast, adding remains were found in the basement of their home at 8355 Fieldfare. Way. A report from the Marion County coroner is needed to officially establish their identities.

9 times out of 10, something like this is caused by a gas leak. I think that's why people keep thinking it is, but the local authorities don't seem to think so. Next would be death my misadventure, ie meth lab. That seems unlikely in this case too. After that you're usually looking at murder. Meteor strike is pretty far down the list.

The only way I can see it being a gas explosion, is if both the houses were totally filled with gas, then both were somehow sparked at the same time. The odds of that are not very good. Unless it was a sabotage thing.

I agree , that's why I posted the link to the AMC....I've also written them to get their take on the whole situation , I'm awaiting a reply that I suspect will put all the meteor talk to bed.

All the gas explosion pictures ive seen look similar, and with multiple homes destroyed. I dont get your logic, a house full of gas that goes off is just like a bomb.

I'm confused. What does DHS have to do with this?


If you want to get really paranoid, start investigating why DHS would be involved. Google dhs local fire police and check out things like this article in Police Chief Magazine:



Homeland security begins with local law enforcement and the community. The collection of information at the community level is critical to the overall homeland se­curity mission. That's where it all starts for every city and town in the United States.


In a nutshell, the federal government is moving towards DHS being the coordinator over federal and local law enforcement, first responders, emergency management, citizens groups, and businesses, with fusion centers gathering and aggragating and analyzing information from everywhere.

Here is a list of community information sources listed in that article in Police Chief Magazine::



Neighborhood Watch—supported by local law enforcement, easily contacted and provided advisories of crime trends, source of information about suspicious activities

Hotels (clerks, security officers, housekeepers, food service workers, and entertainment staff members)—source of information about suspicious guests

Real estate agents—source of information about suspicious activities at properties and about location of wanted persons and undocumented residents

Storage facilities—source of information about explosive or hazardous materials or other items in storage that could be connected to terrorist or criminal activity

Religious groups—source of information about controversial religious speakers or visitors

Fraternal, social, and civic clubs—source of information about upcoming events

Colleges and universities (police officers, administrators, faculty clubs, student groups, and alumni association groups)—source of information about possession of hazardous materials, foreign exchange students, and controversial research, speakers, activities, and events

Printing shops—source of information about threatening or illegal photos and about requests for development of multiple photographs for false IDs

Business managers—source of information about purchasers of dangerous materials such as torches, propane, and blasting supplies

Transportation centers and tourist attractions—target-rich environments for terrorism and source of information about suspicious persons and activities

Major industrial enterprises (owners, security officers, and nearby neighbors)— source of information about potential threats and suspicious activities

Schools (teachers and administrators) source of information about suspicious activities

School and office building custodians source of information about students, employees, visitors, and after-hours activities

Health care providers (EMS drivers, doctors, and hospital employees)— source of information about unusual injuries, such as radiation and chemical burns, as well as mandatory reports of firearms and cutting injuries

Bar and liquor stores—source of information about suspicious conversations,observations, and activities

Inspectors and code enforcers source of information about suspi suspicious activities and materials, such as a large amount of fertilizer where there is no agricultural activity

Facility licenses-source of information about type of building, building plans, premise protection, fire suppression, and storage of hazmat materials

Licenses and permits (handgun, firearm, liquor, hackney, parade and event, blasting, business occupancy, and other types)-source of information about the background of licensees and permit holders

Delivery services (letter carriers, couriers, delivery drivers)-source of information about suspicious activities and packages

Department of public works employees and refuse haulers- source of information about strangers in the neighborhood, foreign substances in trash, inactivity or increased activity at a residence, and other suspicious persons and things

Housing managers (public housing, apartment complexes, and property management associations)-source of information about unusual rentals and other suspicious activities in the properties

Meter readers-source of information about unusual observations

Automobile and truck rental companies- source of information about items left behind in rented vehicles, method of payment, and departure and return details that arouse suspicion

Taxi and delivery drivers, many from countries of interest-source of information concerning activities and threats


It's quite Orwellian. Now realize that article was from 2006 and they have now gone a long way down this road already...

Not the same. Look for the center of the explosion on the photos. It is between two houses. Outside. That doesnt make sense.
A gas leak in one house should have demolished both houses on its sides equally. Gas explosions cannot have such a directed blast. An explosive object from air can. Thats my logic.

I apologize if this has already been posted. I've been TRYING to keep up with the thread.

Take a gander at this "possible cause". A furnace malfunction??? Can this cause this type of devastation???

Do you have any to post for comparison? The only other decent photo of a gas explosion I was able to find for comparison was this one:


Not nearly as strong of a blast I don't think, as it left the two adjoining buildings on either side standing. This one in IN totally removed two houses that were not connected at all.

Not sure if it's been posted earlier but here: (IFD: Press Conference - 11/11/12)



firefighternation.com

Mentions that "some people saw fireworks & strange colorful flames". . . Worth a watch.

Edit: Also mentions that possibly 1 out of the 2 demolished houses could have been a vacant house. If correct, this leaves both of the homes that were destroyed at time of event were completely empty at the time.

But the weird thing is that it looks like two houses exploded relatively equally at the center of the blast. I wouldn't think that's what it would look like if the blast was due to a faulty furnace in one house.

That's about what I was thinking.

My question is why would this guy come out & make this claim. Very strange!
