State Police seek help with Sullivan County homicide

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State Police detectives from the Putnamville Post are seeking help from the public with the nearly six-month investigation into the death of 85-year-old Lowell R. Badger, a rural Sullivan County farmer.

With the onset of warm weather and the propensity for people to be hiking, fishing, mowing and doing other summer activities, detectives request the public look out for items which may have been discarded by the suspects.

Special attention should be given to roadsides, ditches and wooded areas around West County Road 350 North,  particularly in the area of Indiana 154 northwest of U.S. 41.

Possible items could be gloves, tools, knives, any type of firearm, and anything else that appears suspicious or out of place.

Two specific items detectives are seeking is Badger’s personal safe and a black 46-inch Sony Bravia LCD television. Both items were taken during the murder. The safe is a gray older model that is about two feet wide and deep and about 31⁄2 feet tall.

Anyone finding these types of articles is asked to contact the Indiana State Police Post at Putnamville by calling 765-653-4114 or the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office at 812-268-4044.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call ISP Detectives 1st Sgt. Jeff Hearon or Tom Hanks at the Putnamville Post.

Badger was found dead on the bedroom floor of his home after suffering a gunshot wound sometime between 8 p.m. Dec. 7 and 9:23 a.m. Dec. 8. The Badger home is located at 10447 W. CR 350 North in Sullivan County.
