Gaylyn Morris was arrested by Indianapolis Metropolitan Police early Friday morning (June 3) after they found her boyfriend Andre Smith underneath her car. 

The tragic incident took place in the parking lot of Tilly’s Pub in the 3900 block of East 82nd Street at approximately 12:30 am.

Andre was reported deceased by medics with the Indianapolis Fire Department.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office determined he died from being hit by a vehicle.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Gaylyn told a witness she tracked Andre down by using Apple AirTag and GPS and she found him at a bar with a woman.

She told the witness that Andre was her boyfriend and that he was cheating on her. 

According to investigators, Gaylyn picked up an empty wine bottle and told the witness she was going to beat up the woman Andre was with.

The affidavit states that Gaylyn swung the bottle at the woman, but Andre caught it and positioned himself in between the two women.

All three were asked to leave the bar, but the woman that was with Andre stayed inside to wait on her food order.

According to a witness that told police she watched from the bar as Gaylyn “pulled forward and clipped the victim (Andre), and he went down, at which time… (Gaylyn) then backed over him and then pulled forward and hit him for the third time.”

Police say Gaylyn got out of her car and tried to go after the woman that was with Andre before being detained by officers at the scene.

Gaylyn has been preliminarily charged with murder and the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will determine final charges.
