Orlando Mitchell Wiki – Orlando Mitchell Biography

A 34-year-old Indiana man who allegedly shot the mother of his son outside a daycare last year is now being charged with killing a sheriff’s deputy during an attempted escape earlier this week. Orlando Mitchell allegedly used his handcuff chain to strangle 38-year veteran Rep. John Durm following a hospital visit Monday morning. Mitchell then stole the Durm sheriff’s van, which he crashed before being taken into custody again.

According to a press release from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, at approximately 11:30 a.m. m. on July 10, Officer Durm was returning from transporting an inmate, later identified as Mitchell, to a medical appointment. At some point during the return, Mitchell allegedly assaulted Durm inside the departure port of the Criminal Justice Center Complex in the 600 block of Justice Way and stole a transport van.

Mitchell was alone in the transport van, which authorities say he took out of the detention center before crashing less than half a mile later on a strip of highway in the area of 3000 Prospect Street. MCSO deputies and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) officers took Mitchell into custody at the scene of the crash. At least one officer received a minor injury in the process of apprehending Mitchell but was treated at the scene, according to the statement.

Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services (IEMS) took Durm to nearby Eskenazi Hospital, but he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the facility. The Marion County Coroner’s Office conducted an autopsy and determined that Durm’s manner of death was a homicide and the cause of death was “strangulation with ligatures.”

Mitchell was similarly transported to Eskenazi Hospital by IEMS, where he was admitted in stable condition after the accident. He was once again placed under arrest and charged with murder after receiving medical attention and being released from the hospital. The investigation into Durm’s death is being led by IMPD.


According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by Indianapolis Fox affiliate WXIN, the attack on Deputy Durm was caught on surveillance cameras at the detention center. The document reportedly states that Durm arrived at the detention center’s port of departure, which is the safe entrance and exit of the prison, and parked the transport van. Durm then walked around the van and opened the door to let out a handcuffed Mitchell.

Mitchell then reportedly got behind the officer and “raised his hands above Durm’s head and placed them around Durm’s neck.” The two men then fell to the ground and Mitchell used the chain connecting his two wristbands to strangle Durm, which he continued to do “until Durm stopped moving,” WXIN reported. The case will go before the Marion County District Attorney’s Office, which will determine whether to file additional charges against Mitchell.

Mitchell was previously arrested in September 2022 after he allegedly ambushed Krystal Walton, the mother of her child, immediately after she dropped off her children at an Indianapolis day care center, WXIN previously reported. Police reportedly tracked him down several hours later and shot him in the leg before taking him into custody.


Investigators reportedly wrote in a probable cause affidavit that they had been contacted by Mitchell’s own mother, who told them that she had spoken to her son and he told her that she was going to kill Walton. “If she couldn’t see her child, she wouldn’t be in her life either,” Mitchell allegedly told his mother. Mitchell has pleaded not guilty to murder in that case and is scheduled to go to trial in October 2023.Read More…….
