Greensburg deaths being investigated

(Continued)

Officers remained at the scene of the crime until approximately 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. Members of the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department and the Indiana State Police assisted with the investigation, Meyerrose said.

Decatur County Coroner Charity Banks and Deputy Coroner Doug Banks pronounced Hall and his son dead at the scene.

A somber Greensburg Community Schools Resource Officer Bruce Copple remembered Tyler Hall as a child who constantly wore a smile.

“Our hearts and condolences go out to the family of Tyler,” Copple said.

Copple added that teachers and administrators were briefed of the situation prior to the start of school Wednesday morning.

Extra counselors and other grief specialists were brought to the school to help students and teachers deal with the sudden loss.

Copple said students and teachers will be excused to talk with counseling team members whenever needed. Those services are planned to be offered at least through the end of the week.

Meyerrose, speaking on behalf of the GPD, said his department extends its sympathies to the family.

“We are sympathetic to the family and we appreciate everyone’s help in looking [for the Hall and his son],” Drake said Wednesday morning.

Drake identified Tyler Hall as the son of Amy Stainbrook, a Greensburg resident.

“It’s tragic that it turned out this way,” the Chief Deputy said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hall and Stainbrook family.”

Officials were in the process of creating an Amber Alert for the missing 14-year-old, but no alert was issued due to the discovery of the bodies Tuesday night.

Meyerrose said the incident is still under investigation and police anticipated further interviews with family members.
