Bless his heart. I hope that they find who did this. My heart goes out to his wife and family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Chances are the victim stumbled upon someone who was on his property looking to commit a theft.

The perp panicked and killed the victim with the nearest weapon (the rock).

Very sad and unfortunate.

I do believe I knew this man somehow... it's such a shame that some punks would do such a thing to such a nice family.

Looks like a nice guy. It happens though I guess. Bad things happen to nice people.

100 to 1 the motive had to do with some strung out S.O.B.(s), who needed to rob to get their OxyContin fix.

Time will tell, with such a low murder rate, I am sure they will find the perp. When you only have one homicide case to solve, you should not have a shortage of resources.

Sad. Sad. Sad.

Hope they catch the little s-c-u-m-b-a-g and fry him to a crisp. Totally senseless and sad.

Some people are just heartless. My guess is someone was looking to steal some things to make a quick buck because they're on drugs. Otherwise, we have a very brazen individual out there. Drugs are no excuse I just can't imagine someone in their right mind doing something so heinous. Overall, it's just senseless no matter who or why? Rest in peace and to his wife I'm very sorry for your loss.

I hope there is enough evidence around the crime scene to develop some kind of lead. It's always a great idea to have a cheap video camera monitoring and recording your driveway. You can get a complete system for under 250 bucks.

And what would have happened if he was at church? Do you really think God wouldn't bring him home? Read the book. It says you can't hide. My guess would be that includes church

Mike is my cousin! I haven't seen him for many years as we live on the other side of the nation. Mike was a VERY kind, smart, and humble man. We are all still in so much shock! How could anybody do this? Our prayers are going out to Diane and for the rest of his family. The only saving grace is that his parents are not alive to witness this. Please keep us all in yours prayers, and I KNOW Mike is at home with OUR Lord!!

Mike is my Cousin. I have not seen him in many years, as we live in California. Mike was a very kind, smart and loving man! I can't believe anyone would do this! We live in a very wicked world, but we know Mike is with our maker! His whole family is so sad and we are praying that the person(s) that are responsible WILL be found! We love you Diane, and will lift you up in our prayers!! Thank the Lord that our Auntie and Uncle (Mike's Parents) are not alive to witness this. We know they are all together in Heaven.

This was a man of great wisdom, charity, honor and intense and casual intelligence. There is too much about this individual to post on a single forum. It has been years but I look forward to resuming our chess battles.
Rest in peace, Mike. Your family and friends will unite with you soon.
