WNWO has learned more about what a Putnam County mother found inside her home before her two sons were found dead last week.
Michelle Grothause, the mother of Blake and Blaine Romes, called 911 on Thursday morning to report her sons and 17-year-old Michael Aaron Fay missing.
The call says, in part:
Michelle Grothause: "We have 3 children that are missing."
911 Operator: "Ok."
Michelle Grothause: "There's blood in my house, there's a gun in my house. My car is missing."
911 Operator: "You just came home and found all this?"
Michelle Grothause: "Yes. My son was supposed to leave to go to Washington, DC this morning and he wasn't answering his phone so I had to go leave work."
911 Operator: "Does the gun look like it was used?"
Michelle Grothause: "I don't know."
911 Operator : "Is it a handgun?"
Michelle Grothause: "Yes. It's a black handgun."
911 Operator: "When you grabbed it did it look like someone had gotten it out or was it where you normally put it?"
Michelle Grothause: "No. I do not have guns in my house."
911 Operator: "I will get officers out there as soon as I can ok?"
Michelle Grothause: "Thank you. Please hurry."
After the 911 call, a statewide Amber Alert was issued for 14-year-old Blaine Romes, 17-year-old Blake Romes and 17-year-old Michael Fay.
The bodies of the Romes brothers were found hours later in two separate locations near Ottawa.
Fay has since been taken in custody but is only charged with auto theft.
Authorities have said additional charges are pending.
