Sunday, December 8 is a somber anniversary in Sullivan County.

It's been one year since 85-year-old Lowell Badger was found shot to death in his rural home after a robbery.

Despite hundreds of tips.. and a sizable reward, police still  haven't made an arrest - but they aren't giving up hope that they will catch the killer.

"It's a little frustrating for us," admits Indiana State Police Sgt. Joe Watts. "We would like nothing more than to solve in this case for the Badger family, solve this case for the citizens of Indiana and residents of Sullivan County."

The murder of Lowell Badger rocked the community.

An 85-year-old still gone too soon... all over a flat screen TV and a safe.

"We get up every day to go to work and make sure that we are making our community safe. In this particular case, we are working around-the-clock to bring the person or persons to justice because we want nothing more than to solve this crime for the people that we work for," said Watts.

Police have spent the last year investigating every angle of this homicide, from scene searches, trying to find the stolen items and lab analysis.

But officers say this case is a little different - there wasn't a lot of evidence left behind at the crime scene.

So they're once again making pleas to the Wabash Valley, hoping someone who knows something will say something.

"However we are still very hopeful that we will solve it. There's someone out there that has a piece of information, we know they do and that's what we're doing now is going over the case, asking the public's help again," said Watts.

They say no tip is too small, and every single one will be investigated.

And now that a year's passed, look back on any personality changes you may have noticed in someone. Sometimes acting differently, or even drinking more, are signs of something else.

"A lot of times those are very good indicators of someone that may be related to a certain crime," explains Watts. "So please let conscience be your guide and provide that information."

You can make a tip anonymously to Indiana State Police. That number is (765) 653 -4114.

There's a $38,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
