Friday marks 6th anniversary of Lowell Badger murder; police still seek answers
After six years, questions will remain in the murder of a rural Sullivan County farmer and community figure.
Lowell Badger was found dead on the morning of Dec. 8, 2012, in his home with a gray-colored, John D. Brush Co.-manufactured safe and a Sony Bravia television stolen from his residence.
“Since Mr. Badger’s death, investigators with the Indiana State Police and Sullivan County Sheriff’s (Department) have worked side-by-side pursuing justice in the case,” a news release from the SCSD states. “Investigators have followed up on hundreds of tips, conducted hundreds of interviews, and have searched dozens of properties in Sullivan County and the two-state area.
“Police believe someone in the area has credible information that can bring closure to this case,” the release continues. “The entire community pleas with that person to step forward. It’s past time for closure for the family. It’s past time to allow Mr. Badger to Rest In Peace.”
A reward of approximately $30,000 has been established and available for anyone who can provide credible information leading to the conviction of those responsible for this murder.
