91-Year-Old Man Dies After Being Attacked By Robbers

A violent Eastern Kentucky home invasion is now a murder investigation, after the 91-year-old victim dies from his injuries.

91-year-old Bill Taylor died at the University of Tennessee hospital Wednesday, a little more than a week after robbers broke into his Bell County home and beat him up.

Police are still looking for those responsible. Taylor's son says he thinks the robbers were looking for prescription drugs.

Taylor's son also says his father likely had a loaded pistol and rifle by his side when he was beaten. But he probably couldn't react fast enough to use the weapons in self defense.

A $2,000 reward still stands for information leading to arrests in the case.
