The case is still open, there just hasn't been any new leads. That is why I thought I would make a post. Maybe, someone has heard something or knows something.

Yea, it is hard to get some to talk. Many just don't seem to care unless it is them faced with a tragedy like this. Such a shame :(

Why is Roger King's unsolved murder not posted on KSP's cold case site? It is an unsolved murder, SKRECC still has a reward for solving this murder. Soon it will be 10 years since he was brutally murdered and still no conviction.

I noticed that when I was looking at another unsolved case. I will bring that to the detectives attention. I am not worried about the money, didn't know there was a reward. I just would like to see this case solved. I am willing to do anything I can to help. I was very young when this happend, so I don't remember much. It really disturbs me when people commit crimes like this and think they have got away with it. Who ever is resposible for his death needs to pay for what they have done. I have been told that he was a really nice guy. Why would someone want him dead? I really hope people will come foward and help.

The only reason anyone would ever want him dead is because he was worth so much more dead than alive. The bad part is that he was in the war and came home without a scratch and then for someone, he probably knew, to just kill him in his driveway is a total shame. We all want his case to be solved, but money talks. Whoever done it will probably get away with it, here on earth. We can only hope and pray differently, but probably the only time they will pay is after they die. Their day will come.

Isn't it funny how these comments just suddenly stopped? It is like everyone is afraid to speak their minds or voice their opinions, what is up with that?

Yes, that is usually the way it goes :( Well, someone out there knows something. I guess it is up to them to do the right thing. This usually doesn't happen until they are the ones needing help.

Yeah, I think we all know who did it, and who helped out after the fact, I also noticed about two weeks ago that it wasn't on the KSP cold case files, I know that they have to know who done it, but it's hard to prove a murder without a weapon, and with the judicial system we have here, it's even harder for KSP to even get a conviction. It still makes me sick to the bone to think of the smugness of the person thinking that they're free and clear, Roger was a good man , and a good friend, and is greatly missed by everyone that knew him.

I am pretty sure Detective Billy Correll is checking on getting his case on the cold case site. I think I heard him mention that to WYMT in another interview. I didn't know Roger but have only heard good things about him. I am sure he was a great man and I hope this does get solved. The person or person's need to pay for what they did. It seems he was loved by so many.

I don't think there is a reward anymore, I think that was dropped. I don't care about the money, I just want to see justice and no body else in his family be hurt

This I have heard. I was told that the judge would allow them to exume the body but if they didn't find anything then they would have to close the case. I don't know if it was true but this is what I was told when I asked the same question.

i was told by someone who was there and saw this that she asked to be alone before they closed him up . when they came back in to remove him she was digging in the casket and closed the lid .

A great and Awesome Friend !!! I had the honor of knowing Roger for many, many years. I honestly broke down and cried when I had heard what had happened to him. I wanted to repay whom ever (whom's) ever did this to him. He was so nice and kind and would give you his last dollar.
I do know that I had spoken to him probably 2-3 weeks prior to his death. I had some electrical work being done through his company he was working for and he was at the house. But, my family knowig as they did.. I fixed him some coffee and we were talking. He was very bothered about going home. i asked him why? He said; Now this is straight from hi mouth... I have bought my wife (L) everything she has ever wanted and I can't even come home and sit down for a few minutes and be in my work clothes and prop my feet up and relax for a few minutes. He said; when he came in he had to come in and remove his work boots and clothes and take a shower first. He said; sometimes I am just tired and I want to come home and sit down and take off my boots and prop my feet up and read the paper and watch t.v. first. But, I know what she will do. So to keep peace I do what she ask. He wasn't liking the way he worked so hard and couldn't even enjoy his own rewards the way he wanted too. I felt bad for him.
Plus, at the time of the shooting... I had several people to tell me things but now that they are bigger I don't know if they would remember things like they did back then. A school bus came through at the time and they saw her (L) out side and she was running to the house. Which contradicts the statement she gave many years ago. And there again, it is hard to prosecute without a weapon but, what about a civil suite? Take ever penny he had back. Get some type of just for him plus break her in the process!
I hope Angels guide our way... God Bless.
