INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - New court documents offer an inside look into theinvestigation in the immediate aftermath of the deadly Indianapolis house explosion in November that killed two people and cased millions of dollars in damage.

Search warrants related to the probe of the blast show that investigators immediately turned their attention to the owner of the home that exploded, Monserrate Shirley, and her boyfriend, Mark Leonard, and began gathering financial records, phone records and more.

Only two days after the explosion, investigators had determined that the microwave and fireplace were used in tandem to create the deadly blast.

They had figured out that with the step-down regulator missing, it would take nine hours for the home to fill with the amount of gas needed to generate such an explosion.
