75-year old found dead after burglary

February 1, 2018 – On 26 January 2018 police in Indianapolis (USA) received a 911 call at 9.30 am. Detectives found a 75-year old man dead in his residence. It seems he died from a possible blunt trauma. The victim is said to have lived alone in his residence and to have owned a large coin collection that is being missed together with guns and jewellery. The burglars apparently escaped with the victim’s white Hummer which was recovered the next day.

Police estimates that the missing coin collection is worth more than $100,000 and that the burglars will try to sell it. Some of the missing items are:

  • multiple 1/10 eagles NGC 1986-1991 raw and NGC PR70
  • various 1925 $20 St. Gaudens PCGS/NGC
  • multiple 1/2 ounce gold eagles NGC MS70
