The body of Bloomington resident Russell Wayne Lewis was found July 8, 2020, according to a press release from the Indiana State Police issued Friday.
The Bloomingtonian was alerted by a reader about the death of Lewis last July but finally received information this today.
The Indiana State Police released the following:
“On July 8, 2020, at approximately 10:30 pm we received a call from a person who was out with a broke down vehicle on I-69 NB at the 120.3mm (45/46 Bypass Exit) who had discovered a body down the embankment of the east side of the road. Troopers then responded and confirmed the call and requested investigators to the scene. We have confirmed that the subject is Russell W. Lewis (3/14/1961) and we are investigating this as a murder. That is all we have to release at this time while our Detectives continue to investigate this case.”
The Indiana State Police does not comment on active murder investigations.
