While police continue to hunt down Charlie Sowers' murder, they are also looking into who broke into his bar early Saturday morning.

Charlie Sowers was found by a co-worker at the bottom of a staircase in his Lexington home Wednesday.

Police later determined Sowers died of blunt force trauma and ruled it a homicide.

The next day friends and family gathered for a memorial service at Charlie's Bar, owned by Sowers.

Hours after the memorial service police say someone broke into the bar, by pushing in the air conditioning unit in the back and crawling inside.

Once inside police say they stole a video machine, the cash in the jukebox, and liquor and beer from the bar before leaving through the back door.

Police say they have no suspects for the murder or the break-in.
