FISHERS, Ind. (Nov. 2, 2014) — Fishers police released new information in the death of a man whose body was found in a park near his home Saturday.

Detectives say Henry Kim, 73, was discovered by a person walking a dog in Windermere Park, just off 96th Street near Mollenkopf Road. They say Kim was shot and suffered a neck injury.

The whole thing has neighbors talking.

“I walk right by this area once, twice a day, everyday, and it’s really upsetting,” said Barbara Marer.

For Whitney Klein, all of the bright lights and police officers running around gave Windermere Park the look of a movie studio back lot.

“I think I made a post on Facebook ‘I didn’t expect to be watching a real horror story tonight,’ and that’s kind of what unfolded,” Klein said.

Around 7 p.m. Saturday, a person out for a dog walk noticed what looked like a body. That person called police who confirmed that’s what it was. Sgt. Tom Weger, a spokesman for the Fishers Police Department, said investigators have a person of interest in mind.

“We believe he’s 30 to 45 years old, 5’8″ to 6′ tall. He was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and riding a mountain bike,” Weger said.

Police urge you to remain aware of your surroundings. Also, walk in pairs, tell someone where you’re going and when you’ll be back. And, if you see something suspicious, call 911.

In the meantime, police ask that if you know something about this case, call Det. Doug Baker with the Fishers Police Department at (317) 595-3319.
