Authorities said someone went to the home on Highway Z and robbed him, before severely beating him. Police said the robbers then got away in the victim’s van before abandoning it on a farm near the Gasconade River.
“This individual can do this to an 82-year-old disabled handicapped man, he can do something like this to anyone no matter what their age. Whoever did this is a danger to everyone out there,” said Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald Long.
This case comes one year after Pulaski County World War II veteran James Dunham suffered a similar home invasion and later died.
