MEROM, Ind. -

Authorities are asking for the public's help in solving the apparent slaying of an 85-year-old retired farmer in rural western Indiana.

Lowell Badger of Merom was found dead in his home Saturday about 30 miles south of Terre Haute. Indiana State Police say there were obvious signs of trauma, and electronics and other items appeared to have been taken from the home. The victim's fully clothed body was discovered by his son.

Investigators ask anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the area between 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday morning to contact the Putnamville state police post at 765-653-4114.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
