Lawrence ‘Larry’ Howard Groves was a forty-year-old man from Lakeville, Indiana. He lived in a bungalow with his two dogs. Larry had lived in the bungalow since he was seventeen, with his partner, Tom Bennett. Tom’s father, Derl Bennett, had given the bungalow to his son. When Tom had died of a sudden heart attack in 2003, the house went back into Derl’s name. Though he owned the deed to the house, the man had told Larry Groves that he was welcome to live in the house for as long as he wanted.
