This week’s story involves a young Indianapolis mother named Tatyana Sims. She was a 20 year old mother who was viciously murdered while at home with her daughter. It was around 3am on September 3, 2019 when The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to the 3300 block of Hovey Street in Indianapolis.

Police entered a bullet ridden home and found Tatyana Sims and her young daughter suffering from gunshot wounds. Although Tatyana’s daughter survived, she died in the hospital. The police found over 40 shell casings at the home. Amanda Davis, who is Tatyana’s mother, told me that the baby slept on a couch that evening. And this is what saved her life.

For this episode, I spoke to Amanda Davis, who is the mother of Tatyana Sims. She told me she has an idea of who killed her daughter and a possible motive. Before Tatyana died, she told her mom she had received a death threat from a man who terrified her. Amanda said her daughter knew this man was going to kill her.

Amanda has said there are people who know what happened to her daughter. But they won’t speak to the police because they are terrified of reprisal. Do you know what happened to this young mother? Her family is grieving over the loss of the daughter. She was only 20. If you you know anything about the death of Tatyana Sims, please contact the Indianapolis PD Homicide Office at (317) 327-3475 or call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS. You can even leave an anonymous tip.
