INDIANAPOLIS- On May 13, 2021, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) homicide detectives were notified by Brownsburg PD that human remains were located in a storage unit at the Ameri-Stor self-storage facility at 1410 N Green Street. The storage unit was allegedly rented by Jeremy Famer in November of 2019. The human remains have been identified as 58-year-old Roger F. Farmer by the Marion County Coroner’s Office.


On December 27, 2019, family members reported Roger Farmer missing and IMPD began an investigation. He was last seen on November 22, 2019 at his home located at 6757 Wandering Way.

During the detailed investigation led by IMPD’s Missing Persons Unit, detectives gathered information and evidence that led them to believe that foul play was involved in Farmer’s disappearance.

IMPD Detectives have arrested 35-year-old Jeremy Farmer for his alleged involvement in the disappearance of Roger F. Farmer.  The Marion County Prosecutors office has charged Jeremy Farmer with murder.

A charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
