TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - An attack on a bicyclist could lead to felony charges.

James Mundell was riding with his brother around 6:30 a.m. Monday along the Heritage Trail, where it intersects with Hunt Street. He placed a 911 call.

"Yeah, I`m on Hunt Road and there`s a bunch of drunk kids driving in a Ford Taurus, or a Mercury Sable - threw something, hit me in the face! (They) busted my face! They`re sitting, hanging out the window like 3 of them,” Mundell said in the 911 call.

“I thought it was a two-ounce liquor bottle,” Mundell told News 10. “One of them two-ounce mini bottles. It went off in the ditch!”

Whatever the object, the sheriff is investigating and says the charge would be felony battery.

“We’re reviewing some video from some local area stores to see if we can try and isolate that description with the four (4) occupants that are in it,” said Sheriff Greg Ewing.

Ewing hopes anyone with information will call Crime Stoppers at (812) 238-STOP.

Thieves hit Sullivan Humane Shelter

SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) - Thieves stole nearly $600 cash from the Sullivan County Humane Shelter earlier in the week.

When staff arrived Monday morning, they found an office door, usually locked, wide open. A window in the office was open as well. Inside, however, the money box was missing.

The shelter manager and other volunteers were called into the shelter when the theft was realized, and the search for answers began.

Thankfully, one volunteer didn`t have to look long before coming up with some of the missing goods. On her way into the shelter, Lisa Huff searched the roadside to see if the box may have been discarded there. That`s when she noticed some blowing papers, which turned out to be all the checks that were held inside the box.

Unfortunately, the cash is still missing and investigators continue their search for who`s responsible. Right now, the shelter is hoping someone comes forward to take responsibility for the incident.

If you have any information about this case, or know of any suspect(s), you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at (812) 238-STOP.

One Month Mark of Badger`s Murder

By: Kellie Bartoli
Updated: January 8, 2013

Tuesday marks one month since Sullivan County resident Lowell Badger was murdered in his rural home.

Police have investigated dozens of leads, but no arrests have been made and no suspect named.

The 85-year-old Badger was found fatally shot on December 8, in what officials believe was a home invasion gone wrong.

Now, the Badger murder case is the number one priority of the Indiana State Police.

It`s a somber anniversary for the community, but police aren`t giving up hope that Lowell Badger`s murderer will soon be brought to justice. 

"We are leaving no stone unturned. We`re doing a number of things, and we`re positive that take this case is moving forward. It`s moving forward a little slower than we would like, but it is moving forward, and that`s the important thing," said Indiana State Police Sgt. Joe Watts.

Officers have scoured Badger`s home and conducted two area searches of nearby fields and ditches, looking for any clues.

Five Indiana State Police investigators are committed full-time to the case, and in contact each and every day with the Sullivan County Sheriff`s Department.

"This is not sitting on the back burner. This will not go away. We`re hopeful that it will be solved," said Watts. "We`re trying to do everything we can to bring this killer to justice. This is a terrible crime."

A reward has been established for information leading to an arrest - and it`s now up to $35,000.

Law enforcement is also reviewing police reports from the past year, looking for anything suspicious.

That`s in addition to investigating the 80 tips the community has called in.

"We want Sullivan County residents to know that their Indiana State Police and Sullivan County Sheriff`s Department is doing everything possible, working around-the-clock on this," said Watts.

Officials say that the tips have slowed a bit over the past few weeks, but they`re urging you to keep your eyes and ears open... even the smallest tip could hold the answer - and that could be key.

"We want you to continue calling. We cannot stress that enough. Continue calling," said Watts. "We`re looking for that one piece of information that will put us on the doorstep of the person that killed Mr. Badger."

You`re encouraged to report anything that could be related to the case to Indiana State Police at (765) 653 -4114.

Tips can remain anonymous.
