Officers found 82-year old Dennis Wilson about 10:15 Tuesday morning inside his Center Street apartment at the L.C. Jones housing complex. A neighbor called the police after seeing a broken window in Wilson's house.
Police say they think the motive was robbery. They say the man was an invalid and confined to a wheelchair. Investigators hope an autopsy will tell them how Wilson died.
Neighbors say Wilson was well liked. Lillie Weathersby used to go fishing with Wilson.
"I just wonder who would wanna bother him. He didn't bother no one. He was just a nice person, if he could help ya in any way, he'd do it. Everybody knew him," Weathersby says.
