This is awful.... has to be meth heads...Polk County is real bad for Meth 93-year-old man killed in home invasion http://www.baynews9.com/content/36/...title=93-year-old man killed in home invasion POLK COUNTY (Bay News 9) -- A 93-year-old man was found dead Thursday morning after an apparent home invasion, the Polk County Sheriff's Office says. Walter Farley's body was found at around 9:15 a.m. at his residence, 7931 Indian Heights Drive in Lakeland. Walter's son, Robert Farley, and daughter-in-law left at around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday to go to a New Year's Eve party at the Red Rose Inn in Plant City. The couple spent the night at the hotel. When they returned home they found that there had been a home invasion and that Walter had been shot to death. Robert and his wife had been staying with Walter for the past four years to care for him. The family's neighbors describe Walter as a good man who was still active in the neighborhood. "We always saw him outside pulling weeds. We'd always say hi," said neighbor Sase Singh. "Our kids went to their house trick or treating, very friendly guy in the neighborhood." Sheriff Grady Judd calls the homicide a senseless act of violence. "This was a good solid man in the community. Even though he was 93 he was still active in the Kathleen Historical Society," Judd said. "He was a ham radio operator, he knew Morse code and he was one the community could always depend on to help out in any event." Judd is calling on the community to help solve the crime. He says investigators don't have a lot to go on. They're not sure how many people they're looking for or what kind of car they were driving.
