Two Dead in Murder/Suicide


A man and a woman were found dead last night in what investigators believe was a murder/suicide on the east side of Bloomington. The two were discovered in the common area of Stratum at Indiana Apartments around 9:21 p.m. When police arrived, they found a 20 year old man dead from an apparent suicide by hanging. The woman, who was 21, had died from apparent stab wounds. The investigation is still on-going. In a press release, Lieutenant Brad Seifers with Bloomington Police said detectives believe the woman was killed by the man, who then committed suicide. Police have not yet identified the victim or the suspect in the case.

Arts Interchange – Abby Lee On Hedda Gabler


Hedda Gabler has become Hedda Tesman in marriage to George Tesman. But the play is not called Hedda Tesman. And this must be our first indication of how an audience needs to be critical of the social world where marriage confers a new identity on a woman. Hedda will have none of that. But what has she had, and what will she find in this new circumstance? Hedda Gabler yearns to be an “artist of the beautiful act.”

Hedda Gabler is played by Abby Lee in the IU Theater Production. Abby joins us for this Arts Interchange to discuss a complicated woman who audiences tend to either love or hate.

The IU Theater opens Hedda Gabler in Ruth N. Halls Theater this Friday evening at 7:30 and will run through October 3rd.
