INDIANAPOLIS, IN – A couple from Rossville, Indiana tragically lost their lives during a camping trip when severe storms hit the state. Brett Kincaid, 53, and his wife, Wendy Kincaid, 47, were camping at McCormick’s Creek State Park in Owen County when a tornado with winds reaching 138 mph struck.

The couple was found dead in their camper the next day, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. 

Brett Kincaid was a self-employed contractor in the construction business, while Wendy Kincaid worked for Purdue University as a research account specialist. They had been married for 30 years and are survived by their children and a grandson.

A GoFundMe has been started by Andrew Bean to assist in the couple’s funeral costs. As of Monday, the fundraiser has raised over $14,000 of a $20,000 goal.

“The Kincaids were generous in all aspects of their life, and many have asked how they can show the same generosity to the Kincaids’ children and family in this time of loss. Support received from this fundraiser will go towards funeral expenses and costs to settle their estate,” Bean wrote on the fundraiser’s page.

The Kincaids’ tragic death was just one of five fatalities recorded in Indiana from the same storm system. Shane Goodman, 47, died in Sullivan County, and mother and son, Susan Kay Horton, 61, and Thomas Randall Horton, 38, also lost their lives in the same county.

The severe weather also caused extensive damage to buildings and infrastructure in Indiana, leaving many without power or water.
