New details released in Eddy Hill homicide

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office released the probable cause affidavit that gives new details in the murder of Eddie Hill. Hill was killed early Saturday morning outside Antonio’s Bar on Ewing Street in South Bend.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Michael Jones, his girlfriend Tamarra Townsend, Eddy Hill and his girlfriend Sarah Coleman were together at a bar, then left to go to Antonio’s Bar.

According to Coleman, Hill was upset about how much attention Jones was paying to her and confronted Jones about it at Antonio’s.

After 3 a.m., the pair ended up arguing in the parking lot on the south side of the building, near Coleman’s car.

At the time, Coleman, Hill, Townsend and Jones were present.

Coleman told police Jones went to his car, then as he was returning to Hill, she said she heard gunshots.

She saw Jones shoot Hill at least three times, according to the affidavit.

Jones and Townsend then fled the scene, according to the affidavit.

Police tried to locate Townsend and Jones at her apartment. She allegedly contacted a neighbor but could not be located.

Sunday morning at 7 a.m., Jones turned himself in to the South Bend Police Department.

He was then taken to the St. Joseph County Jail and was booked on murder charges.

His girlfriend, Tamarra Townsend, walked into the SBPD two hours later and asked to speak to investigators.

She was released after she spoke to investigators.

Hill’s autopsy was completed Monday morning. His cause of death was due to multiple gunshot wounds and the manner of death was ruled homicide.
