FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) — Police say they’re leaving no stone un-turned as they search for a suspect behind a murder in a Fishers park.
Fishers Police Department spent Monday searching water and continuing to investigate a homicide. Saturday night, 73-year-old Henry Kim was found dead in a park. There were signs of trauma on his body.
Investigators released photos Monday of a bicycle and helmet being used over the weekend by someone they want to speak with.
Fishers PD officials said they are looking for a person of interest who was riding a dark grey or black Trek bicycle and wearing a specific type of green helmet (see attached photos).
Scouring the waters at Windermere Park, Fishers Police and Fire Department each had their dive teams looking for any evidence that could help them crack the case.
“We wouldn’t limit our search to any one particular item but obviously anything that we believe could be related to this actual crime we would want to recover,” said Sgt. Tom Weger, Fishers PD.
Police didn’t say if anything was found in the pond, but about a half a mile away at the intersection of Windermere and Governor’s Lane, police said a homeowner found a knife outside. Police said Kim was cut in his throat on top of suffering a gunshot wound.
“We do not know if (the knife) is involved in this homicide but that will be determined at a later date,” said Sgt. Weger.
Steve Blessing lives near the park and was shocked such an act of violence could happen in his neighborhood. It’s why he’s ready to help police if he sees the bicyclist detectives desperately want to question.
“Sure, I’ll keep my eye open,” said Blessing. “I’m retired and I’m home quite a bit so yeah I’ll keep my eye open.”
“(The person of interest) may have seen something that may have been insignificant to him at the time but maybe now would provide us with some useful information,” added Sgt. Weger.
Anyone who believes they’ve seen the bicyclist or any other suspicious activity in the area is asked to call Det. Doug Baker at 317-595-3319 or Hamilton County Sheriff’s Dept. dispatch at 317-773-1282.
As police search for a suspect they considered “very, very dangerous,” they’re asking nearby homeowners to lock their doors and close their garages. They are also warning people not to walk alone, especially at night. Fishers PD squad cars are patrolling the neighborhoods surrounding Windermere Park to keep an extra eye out. They also followed school buses in the neighborhoods this afternoon as they dropped off students just to be safe.
Kim’s autopsy is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
