New Tips Sought in 2012 Killing of 85-year-old Man

SULLIVAN, Ind. (AP) – State police have issued a new request for the public's help in finding out whoever killed an 85-year-old retired farmer at his rural western Indiana home two years ago.

Police say Lowell Badger was fatally shot Dec. 8, 2012, after a burglary of his Sullivan County home about 30 miles south of Terre Haute.

Sgt. Joe Watts says investigators have received nearly 100 tips about the attack, but none have led to arrests of those responsible.

Among items taken from Badger's house were a gray-colored safe that was about 2-feet tall and made by John D. Brush and Co. and a 46-inch Sony Bravia LCD television. 

A reward of $30,000 is being offered to those who provide information leading to an arrest and conviction in Badger's death.
