    Source #2:

    WBNS 10TV Columbus OH January 2015 interview with BCI Special Agent on case:

    Not a random robbery... because... Mr. Stulka's wallet was on him when the Sheriff's Department found him and there was quite a substantial amount of money in the wallet at the time."
    Also from this interview, investigators believe Stulka's killer(s) may have had local knowledge of area where his car was left b/c it was a secluded & very rural oil field road in a wooded place.
