(WICHITA, Kan.) — Its been one year since Tim McGuigan was shot to death in his home and his family is still searching for answers. His case remains unsolved. Police tips have stopped coming in.
McGuigan was the Vice President of the Kansas State Bank and an active member of the Wichita Wagonmasters.
Tim's brother didn't want to talk on camera, he's too afraid to since the killer is still at large. He says the family is anxious for answers and frustrated that no new leads have come in to find the suspect.
McGuigan had only lived in his home on the 2500 block of north Woodridge a few weeks, when he was shot several times in his torso. His son found his body when McGuigan didn't show up to work the morning of September 7th, 2011.
No one in the neighborhood heard anything. Police say there were no signs of a break in or struggle. Investigators have ruled out robbery, since nothing was taken. But they believe this was not a random act.
That's why police made a plea for more tips last December.
"No matter how unusual or little they think it is, They need to call us. We'll check it out because it might exactly be that one thing that leads us in the right direction.", said Lieutenant Ken Landwehr.
"Everyone I've talked to cannot imagine a situation he would put himself in that would create what happened to him," said McGuigan's friend Don Grant.
Grant got to know McGuigan through the Wichita Wagonmasters. He was an active member and a well known Wichita State supporter.
Friends were shocked to learn of his death
"He enjoyed a laugh, he really enjoyed a good joke and he enjoyed the fun things of life," said McGuigan's friend Pete Meitzner. We had quite a few, quite a few laughs together."
They too are hoping for an answer to this year long mystery.
