Entry Description
Sullivan County—The approaching holidays are normally a time to gather with family and friends and reminisce on the good times. However, in one particular case, the holidays will be a vivid reminder of the father, grandfather, friend, and neighbor who was lost to a violent crime.

Sunday, December 8th will mark the one year anniversary since 85-year-old Lowell R. Badger was found deceased on the bedroom floor of his rural Sullivan County home at 10447 West County Road 350 North. Mr. Badger died as the result of a gunshot wound suffered during a burglary of his residence.

Taken during the burglary was Lowell’s safe, a light to medium dark gray, measuring 23 1/2 tall, 17” depth, and 17 “wide, in pristine condition and manufactured by John D. Brush and Company and his black 46” Sony Bravia LCD television. A picture of a similar safe is attached, but Lowell's was in prisitine condition.

Lowell’s family and friends describe him as the nicest man you would ever want to meet and was always one to lend a helping hand.

The Indiana State Police and Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office continue to aggressively investigate this crime; but to date, no arrests have been made. Anyone with information is urged to call the Indiana State Police Putnamville Post at 765-653-4114 or the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office 812-268-4044. All tips will be investigated and person(s) can remain anonymous.

A reward of $38,000 has been established and available for person (s) who provide information leading to the arrest and conviction for those responsible for Lowell’s death.
