INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Hundreds of people have turned out in Indianapolis for the funeral of a couple killed in a house explosion earlier this month.


According to the Indianapolis Star, Monsignor Tony Volz told mourners there's no way to understand the deaths of 34-year-old John Dion Longworth and 36-year-old Jennifer Longworth.


The Nov. 10 blast that flattened their home and killed them devastated their neighborhood. Its cause is still being investigated.


Jennifer Longworth taught second grade at a Greenwood school. Each Christmas, she gave her students hats and scarves that she knitted herself. Her husband was director of product development and technology at Indy Audio Labs.


WISH-TV reports the crowd at the funeral is so big that cars overflowed the church parking lot and lined up bumper-to-bumper in surrounding streets.
