This Friday, December 8th will mark the 5th anniversary into the unsolved murder of a rural Sullivan County man. 85-year-old Lowell Badger was found dead from a gunshot wound on the floor of his bedroom.
Since his death, Indiana State Police and the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Department have been working together to try and solve the case. Detectives have investigated over one-hundred tips, conducted nearly one-hundred interviews, and combed many areas of land and water in the Sullivan County looking for clues. Investigators believe someone in the community has information related to the case and are urging them to come forward.
If individuals are in fear of reporting what they know, Police say they have the means to mitigate those concerns. Anyone with information is urged to call the Indiana State Police Putnamville Post or the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office.
There’s a $30,000 reward being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
