INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indiana Fever guard Caitlin Clark’s phone was eerily silent after she became the first rookie in WNBA history to record a triple-double Saturday.

Or so she joked after practice Tuesday.

News 8’s Angela Moryan asked the All Star what the reaction was like on her phone and social media postgame.

“No text messages, nothing,” Clark said with a straight face. “No one reached out.”

That elicited a big laugh from the Indianapolis media contingent.

On the court, the Fever have a lot of confidence heading into Wednesday’s afternoon game against the Washington Mystics. Saturday’s 83-78 comeback win against the New York Liberty is the source of most of it.

“I think everyone is feeling good, especially with the way we won that game,” Fever forward Katie Lou Samuelson said. “It felt really good to have good runs, to combat their runs, and really just execute in that fourth quarter, and people stepped up big throughout the whole team. I think it was such a good, well-rounded win, and it was a lot of fun in the locker room.”

Seven of the team’s nine wins this season have come in the last month. But the win against the current best team in the WNBA has certainly been the higlight.

“To come out against New York, have a tough offensive quarter in the second and the third quarter but still keep playing hard defensively, that’s just where we grew,” head coach Christie Sides said.

“There’s a lot things we still could’ve done better in that game,” Clark said. “Our defense was pretty good though. On offense, I thought we pushed the ball well. So just continuing to build.”

Clark’s triple-double has helped that growth. It was the first triple-double in Fever franchise history, but it didn’t shock Clark’s teammates one bit.

“I mean, I think if you guys have seen her do it for an accumulation of four years, I don’t think it would be too difficult on the pro level,” guard Kelsey Mitchell said.

“She’s always been this player, but I think we’re just now seeing it come out in the triple-double and the things like that,” Samuelson said. “Every shot she takes, I feel confident that it’s going to go in…. We’ve really started to push the pace and run the floor, and I think that’s something that she excels at really well.”

Clark and company will try to stack some more wins, starting at noon Wednesday against the Mystics.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The noncustodial parents of the three children who went missing from Indianapolis last week are now facing charges related to their disappearance.

Willie Terrell, 50, and Jessika Officer, 31, have been charged with three counts of interference with custody, removing children from the state in violation of court orders, according to online records.

According to court documents, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were dispatched to the Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que, 3645 Vincennes Road, in Indianapolis around 1 p.m. on July 4 for an abduction. That restaurant is located on the city’s northwest side.

A man met with officers and said that he had custody of his three grandchildren — identified as Frankie, 4; Queen, 3; and King, 1 — and had agreed to bring the children to meet their parents for a meal at the restaurant with the approval of the Indiana Department of Child Services.

When the man returned from the bathroom after Willie and Terrell arrived, the pair had left in a white minivan with their three children.

IMPD detectives discovered the following day in their investigation that the children had been removed from their parents in October due to medical neglect, including failure to give their daily medications and fed them poorly.

A statewide Silver Alert was issued on July 5 for the pair and their three children.

  • RELATED: Silver Alert issued for family of 5 missing from Indianapolis

Detectives requested “exigent pings” of the parents’ cellphones using the phone numbers provided by Child Services. Initially, Jessika’s phone pinged in Louisville, Kentucky, but later, Willie’s cellphone pinged indicating they were in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Detectives were later informed that the couple’s phone numbers were no longer active.

On Monday, detectives obtained an accurate phone number and successfully pinged it at 4:16 a.m. in Columbus, Texas. A Child Services case manager informed detectives that she had just spoken with Willie and his therapist in a three-way call.

Willie reportedly told his therapist during the call “the children were okay, they were on their way to Mexico, stating he was 288 miles from Mexico, and he wanted the FBI to investigate why his children kept being taken from him,” court documents say.

Detectives obtained medical records of the three children, which showed they have diagnosed with illnesses that need continued treatment.

On Tuesday morning, with the help of Texas officials, a ping of Willie’s phone revealed that he was in Pearsall, Texas, 101 miles from the United States-Mexico border.

MOORESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A 5-year-old boy was found safe Tuesday afternoon after missing for nearly two years, Mooresville Police Chief Kerry Buckner says.

Buckner says two Indiana State Police troopers on Tuesday afternoon found the boy, his mother and her boyfriend, all sought in an Indiana Silver Alert issued in August 2022 at a rural Monroe County home.

The troopers found 5-year-old Steven Bryan; his biological mother, Deborah Bryan; and her boyfriend Caleb Blevins in a home in the 8300 block of North Fox Hollow Road in northern Monroe County. That’s near the rural community of Wayport, which is about halfway between Bloomington and Martinsville. The home also sits just southwest of the Morgan-Monroe State Forest.

Buckner said, “They went and knocked on the door. They knew people were inside, but they wouldn’t come to the door, and they applied for a search warrant. When they executed the search warrant they found all three individuals inside.”

Buckner says Steven Bryan was unhurt and was turned over to the Indiana Department of Children Services.

Deborah Bryan was 29, and Blevins was 30 when the Silver Alert was issued in August 2022.

Steven Bryan was last seen June 15, 2022, at a home on Elderberry Court in Mooresville. That’s where his biological father was supposed to visit the boy.

Investigators had always believed Steven was with his biological mother and her boyfriend.

Buckner said, “Over the last two years, we spoke to Deborah Bryan’s attorney, and I said, ‘Let’s just do a Zoom call and make sure the kid is OK, give us peace of mind,’ and no cooperation.”

About three months ago, two state troopers were assigned to the case, Buckner said. About 1 p.m. today, the troopers received evidence that the boy, his mother and her boyfriend were in the rural Monroe County home. The troopers got a search warrant, and then secured all three at the home. Buckner is not sure how long they were living there.

“It kind of indicates to me that they moved around a little bit. This may have just been where they moved to because when you’re on the run you don’t want to stay in one place too long.”

Misdemeanor charges of interference with custody were filed against Deborah Bryan in December 2022 in Morgan Superior Court 2. A warrant has been pending for her arrest.

Court records show Deborah Ryan asked the Indiana Court of Appeals to reverse a lower court’s ruling that awarded custody of Steven to his father. The court has not yet made a decision in the case.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indiana Department of Transportation on Tuesday night had its second of four hearings on its plan to expand the state’s electric vehicle charging network.

The second hearing was at the Global Village Welcome Center event hall on Lafayette Road.

INDOT says the project is funded through the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Leaders say the goal in Indiana is to have at least 500,000 electric charging stations by 2030.

On Tuesday night, Indianapolis residents got a chance to ask questions about the project.

George McCue, director of the zero emissions vehicles program for INDOT, said, “We’re really trying to look toward the future and future proof and have that build to support current EV owners and also give people who are looking and considering EVs in the future to have that opportunity to charge on their road trips.”

The next hearing will be from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Thursday at Hingst Hall on the campus of Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo, 1815 E Morgan St., Kokomo.

The final hearing will be from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. July 16 at the Green Activities Center on the campus of Vincennes University, 120 W. Harrison St., Vincennes.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Sandy Brondello, the Australian women’s basketball head coach, gave Kristy Wallace the call to tell her that she would be on the Australian women’s basketball team for the Olympics.

Wallace could not contain her emotions.

“I was just a bag of tears,” she said.

This is Wallace’s first selection to the Australian Olympic team. She said she has dreamed about this since she was a young kid, and this selection is a dream come true.

Wallace said that the Australian women’s basketball team stays in touch with each other, and that the whole team is very close and all friends.

Former Fever player and current video associate Tully Bevilaqua made the Australian Olympic team back in 2008. Wallace said that Bevilaqua told her to just embrace the moment and enjoy it.

Wallace is the fifth Fever player to be selected to play in the Olympics, joining Natalie Achonwa, Bevilaqua, Tamika Catchings, and Kara Wolters.

The Australian women’s basketball team is currently third in the FIBA world rankings, behind the United States and China. The last time Australia medaled in the Olympics for women’s basketball was in 2012, when the got the bronze medal.

Wallace is averaging 5.0 points per game this season for the Fever. But, she is frequently tasked with guarding the opposing team’s best player on the perimeter.

“That’s what she does, whatever is needed for the team,” Fever head coach Christie Sides said. “She will pick up the best offensive player, defend whoever, be ready to shoot wide open shots when they’re open, (and) run the offense if we need to. She’s just able to help us wherever we need it.”

“I think she does a great job of being the next man up when her number is called,” Fever guard Kelsey Mitchell said. “She does that really, really, well. That’s probably why she’s about to go be an Olympian.”

The Fever return to action on Wednesday against the Mystics. The game will tip off at noon at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

NEW YORK (AP) — Caitlin Clark leads Angel Reese in the race for WNBA Rookie of the Year honors at the midpoint of the season, according to a national panel of voters who also rank the AP Power Poll each week.

Clark and Reese have garnered national attention with record-setting rookie seasons — leading to them being the first rookie duo to make an All-Star team since 2014 — so it’s no surprise that they’re the leading candidates for the award.

The pair have helped the league tohuge increases in ratings, attendance and merchandise sales and with so much basketball still to be played an argument can be made for either to win the award.

But at the halfway point, the 15-member panel gives the edge to Clark in a 9-5 vote. One person didn’t vote.

“Today, I would say Clark, only because they have one more win overall as a team and have a 2-1 lead head-to-head,” said voter Christy Winters-Scott, a basketball analyst for the Mystics. “Clearly this could change as the WNBA season progresses. It has been a complete joy for me to witness how both players have evolved as professionals in such a short amount of time in the league.”

Clark is leading the WNBA in points accounted for (points plus points off assists) with 713 according to ESPN. The Indiana Fever’s No. 1 pick also became the first rookie to have atriple-double in a gamedoing it in a win over New York.

Reese set the WNBA recordfor consecutive double-doubleswith 13, passing Candace Parker’s mark of 12 set across the 2009 and 2010 seasons. She’s leading the league in rebounding with 11.9 a game.

The panel also picked Las Vegas star A’ja Wilson as the unanimous choice for Player of the Year at this point in the season. Wilson felt she should have won the award last year and this year has been even more dominant. She is averaging 27.0 points, 10.9 rebounds and 2.7 blocks.

The Aces star forward is on pace to shatter the record for average points in a season. Shebecame the Aces’ all-time scoring leaderon Sunday.

Cheryl Reeve gets the mid-season nod for Coach of the Year. She guided the Minnesota Lynx to a Commissioner’s Cup title and has the team sitting in third in the standings. Reeve was a near unanimous choice, with Connecticut’s Stephanie White garnering the only other vote.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A woman died sometime Tuesday morning after being shot during a fight at a gas station on the northwest side of Indianapolis.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the woman as 21-year-old Tyreana Terrell.

Online police reports show that Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were dispatched to the Marathon gas station at 4720 W. 56th St. early Tuesday morning, shortly after midnight Monday, on a report of a person shot.

That’s in a business area with gas stations, restaurants, and pharmacies at the intersection of West 56th Street and Georgetown Road.

Police arrived and found Terrell suffering from a gunshot wound. An update from IMPD shortly after the incident said Terrell was awake and breathing, but she died at a hospital sometime later.

Investigators say they believed Terrell was in a fight with another person before being shot, but didn’t say if they were injured or who the person was.

IMPD declined to tell News 8 if a suspect or other person was being sought, or if someone was in custody.

Anyone with information on the fight was asked to contact Det. Sara Didandeh at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or by email at Sara.Didandeh@indy.gov.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It was a police chase and a crash that killed 17-year-old Terryoun Mays.

Police found the vehicle flipped over on Brill Road near the intersection with Madison Avenue and Southern Avenue. Three people were inside. Mays was one of the passengers.

Police said a group of men were flashing guns downtown after midnight Sunday. Police were in hot pursuit of a person banned from carrying a handgun. The driver stopped but then took off again. At one point, police lost sight of the vehicle and stopped the chase, but the vehicle kept going eventually crashing.

Damage can be seen on Brill Road: car parts, including a rearview mirror and what looks like a broken car window. On the scene, there are tire marks on the grass,a broken metal barricade,a hole in the box truck, a completely demolished trash receptacle, an uprooted tree, and a downed street sign.

Neighbors and workers around the area did not want to appear on camera but the told I-Team 8 that the vehicle must have been speeding so fast it went airborne because it ruined the box truck. It knocked out the rolled-up back door and left metal scattered on the ground.

Police said two firearms, a drum-style magazine, and bullets were recovered at the scene.

I-Team 8 found an empty box that once held bullets.

The city workers are now cleaning up the mess.

The driver and other passenger are still in critical care at a local hospital.

SAN DIEGO (Ivanhoe Newswire) – Genetic testing looks at changes in a person’s DNA.

With a simple test, researchers can find out if you have a genetic condition and determine your chances of developing or passing on deadly diseases, such as breast, ovarian and colon cancers, cystic fibrosis, even heart disease.

But, these tests can be costly, and some people can’t afford them. Now, the move is on to make genetic testing accessible to everyone.

Genetic testing – a simple blood draw or saliva sample – can identify opportunities for prevention, single out the best clinical trials, and improve treatment outcomes.

Dr. Stephen Gruber, chair of the Center for Precision Medicine at City of Hope in Maryland, said, “We actually recognize that it’s going to be the most cost-effective care as well.”

A test can cost hundreds of dollars and is sometimes not covered by insurance. Now, City of Hope is one of the first cancer centers in the world to offer free genetic testing to every single patient, and possibly their immediate families.

Bita Nehoray, genetic counselor manager at City of Hope, said, “Someone I recently spoke to who was identified to have a genetic change that increased her risk for breast and ovarian cancer, and we got those results in just before she was about to start chemotherapy, and it actually changed things for her, and we were able to offer her a more appropriate and better line of therapy.”

The panel tests 189 genes related to the risk of cancer and other inherited diseases.

Nehoray said, “It’s been a tremendous game changer, as it relates to prevention in families, but also in really personalizing the most appropriate treatment plan.”

Taking part in the genetic testing is completely free to the patients. City of Hope will soon begin offering the INSPIRE study testing nationwide in their locations in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, and Phoenix.

BEECH GROVE, Ind. (WISH) — Police have arrested three people believed to have tried to break into Beech Grove Firearms on Friday.

The owner of the store at 3020 S. Emerson Ave. on Tuesday shared video from the attempt with News 8. It shows 18-year-old Tyrone Bonner and two 17-year-old boys jumping a fence next to the store. They had a hammer, a bag, a ski mask and bolt cutters.

Police quickly caught them, which can also be seen in the video.

Owner Greg Burge says having police close to the shop is invaluable. “We are a hundred yards from the Beech Grove police station, which is invaluable and it proved … it didn’t prove to be a deterrent, but it sure proved to be an asset because the Beech Grove a hundred yards away, you know watching this unfold.”

“From the information I’ve been told, they pretty much did everything but say ‘good morning, officers, we’re here to break into Beech Grove Firearms.'”

Last April. three men used a stolen pickup truck to ram the front of the building and steal nearly $30,000 worth of firearms.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Former Indianapolis Colts player Daniel Muir and his wife, Kristen, are fighting a decision to hold them in jail without bond.

It’s in connection to domestic battery and obstruction of justice charges after their son went missing last month.

The Muirs are claiming their constitutional rights are being violated because the judge did not give them a bond.

Judge Stephen RogerKittsII denied both of them bond and said they were a flight risk after they did not cooperate with law enforcement in the search for their son.

In the court filing Tuesday, their attorney argued the judge was supposed to use specific evidence to prove the Muirs are a flight risk or a danger to the community before holding them without bond. The filing said, “No such tools were used in the Muirs cases and nowhere in Criminal Rule 2.6 does it authorize a Court to outright deny bail if someone presents a flight risk or danger to the community.”

The attorney for the Muirs argued the judge should have followed the bond matrix established in Cass County.

According to the county website, that means Daniel Muir should have been given a $5,000 surety or $1,000 cash bond for the low-level felony of domestic battery that he’s accused of.

WASHINGTON (WISH) — A southern Indiana man got more than five years in prison after pleading guilty to assaulting a police officer during the U.S. Capitol riots on Jan. 6, 2021.

Curtis Logan Tate, 32, of Jeffersonville, had pleaded guilty to charges that he used a metal baton, a lamp and other makeshift weapons to assault police officers who were protecting the U.S. Capitol from a mob of Donald Trump supporters.

Tate struck at least two officers with the baton that he brought to the Capitol. He hit one officer in the hand and the other repeatedly on the helmet.

Tate also threw a broken table leg, a floor lamp, a speaker box and a shoe at officers guarding a tunnel entrance on the Capitol’s Lower West Terrace. He struck a third officer’s arm and damaged a window when he threw the speaker box.

Tate had pleaded guilty to three felony counts of assaulting, resisting or impeding police using a deadly or dangerous weapon, court records show.

Tate lived in Jeffersonville, Indiana — near Louisville, Kentucky — when he and a friend traveled to Washington to attend then-President Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally near the White House on Jan. 6. He posted several videos on Instagram as he stormed the Capitol with other rioters.

Tate was arrested in August 2023 in Wilmington, North Carolina. A federal magistrate judge ordered him to remain jailed until his case is resolved.

In March 2023, USA Today interviewed Tate for a story about Capitol rioters who had been identified by online sleuths but not yet arrested. Tate acknowledged that he was at the Capitol on Jan. 6, but he denied assaulting anyone.

“I would never hurt an officer. I come from a military background, I’m very respectful of our military and police,” he told the newspaper.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
