"He got off work about 6:30 that evening and about two hours later at 8:00, we got a call about a suspicious vehicle in the 600 block of Ridley avenue,” said Detective Ley Wynne.

During the investigation of the case numerous tips were received by the City of LaGrange Police Department, however, a suspect in the case was never developed and no arrest was ever made.

“Obviously someone knows what happened,” said Wynne. “We just haven’t had anyone come forward with enough information to develop a suspect."
