INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis pastor whose wife was killed in a home invasion last week has spoken publicly for the first time about the case. In an interview with "Good Morning America" Tuesday, Davey Blackburn says he’s “baffled” why anyone would want to kill his wife, Amanda. And he said the family trusts the investigators who are handling the case.

“They’ve been so good to us through this process, trying to keep us up to speed on what they have, and we trust that they’re doing the best they can. They’ve told us they have all the resources at their disposal right now to catch who did this,” Blackburn told GMA’s George Stephanopoulos.

Last night, Indianapolis police released surveillance photos of the man they believe entered the Blackburn’s home shortly after 6 a.m. on Nov. 12 and shot Amanda Blackburn in the head. The grainy, black-and-white photos show a man wearing a hoodie walking away from the camera. Police earlier described him as a “black male with a light to medium complexion, of slim to medium build, between 5’ 4” and 5’ 9” tall.” Blackburn described the photo as "obscure."

Crime scene investigator Captain Craig Converse said Friday that Blackburn’s murder is linked to a robbery a short time earlier two doors down from the Blackburn’s home. Investigators said there was no sign that anyone had forced their way into the Blackburn’s home.

Amanda Blackburn's killing has drawn national attention, and more than 2,000 people attended her funeral on Sunday.
