Detectives subsequently located the deceased bodies of 14 year old Jacob McCarty and his dog Isabella near a wooded area off of Interstate 64, west of the Harrison County Hospital. Detectives and deputies from the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department along with the Harrison County Coroner and Indiana State Police thoroughly processed and meticulously documented the scene.
