Police have person of interest in Tishoff Drive murder investigation

Tom Rogers, 74

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Police have not made any arrests yet, but they do have a person of interest in the Tishoff Drive murder investigation.

Monday afternoon, police released a sketch of a man in the area at the time of the stabbing. Neighbors described seeing a white man between 35 and 40-years-old, around six feet tall, weighing between 170 and 180 pounds with shoulder length, tangled, dark hair. They believe he was wearing blue jeans and a dark shirt.

"Just like your neighborhood, anybody's gonna know what's out of normal for their neighborhood. If they feel that Friday afternoon, if they saw something that was out of normal for their neighborhood that they may have some significance along for this investigation or feel they could provide some further information at this point we're asking that they call us," pleaded Lexington Police Lt. Brian Maynard.

The victim, 74-year-old Tom Rogers, died after being attacked in his Tishoff Drive home on Friday night. Lexington Police confirmed to WKYT on Monday that Rogers was stabbed multiple times. He was found by his wife and rushed to UK Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say Rogers was home alone at the time of the attack and that there were no signs of forced entry at the home. Investigators also say several items were missing from inside.

Neighbors tell WKYT Rogers and his wife lived on Tishoff Drive for several years. They are still having a hard time wrapping their head around what's happened to their dear friend.
