Indiana State Police, Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office and the Evansville Police Department worked together to execute a murder warrant for Murbarger after a grand jury issued an indictment for him late last month in the case of Megan Nichols, a young Illinois woman who was reported missing in 2014 and whose remains were found in a rural area of Wayne County, Illinois.
