NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) – Hundreds gathered inside the Greater Faith Church Saturday to remember 35 year-old Jaime Clutter and her two young children, 10 year-old Brandon and six month old Katelyn .

The three were found dead and naked on March 13th in a creek in Binford Park. Michael clutter has been dealing with their tragic deaths by watching home videos and looking through pictures.

“My heart just feels like I got a big tear in it right in the middle of it because that was my family,” Clutter said.

For nearly two hours Clutter says he stood by the side of his wife and children during the visitation because it was too hard to walk away. “Nothing is ever going to bring them back and that's what really hurts,” Clutter said.

Clutter says he does find comfort knowing their close family bond will not be separated through this tragedy. “I know if there was anyone that ever deserved to be in heaven they did.”

Investigators are still trying to piece together what exactly happened the day the bodies were discovered. Officials have not ruled out a murder-suicide at this point and have said they found a bible in a baby harness hanging from a tree near where the bodies were found.

The cause of death for the children has been ruled as drowning. The cause of death for Jaime is still pending.

Jaime and Katelyn will be buried in the same casket. The funeral for the three will be Monday at 10:30 am at Fairview Cemetery.
