Henry Cary Sr., Jan. 20, 1991

A friend began to worry when she didn’t see 81-year-old Henry Cary Sr. the morning of Jan. 20, 1991.

She stopped by his home at 506 ˝ Taylor St. in Lynchburg to make sure he was OK.

She found him in his second-floor bedroom, lying on the bed in a large pool of blood. Cary had been beaten and died of blunt-force trauma to the head. The woman called Cary’s son, who in turn called police.

Cary’s .22-caliber pistol, wallet and cash were missing.

Investigators never found enough evidence to file charges.
