Some forum members on another site have gotten this email about a robbery/murder. Hopefully the victim wasn't targeted due to collecting but this is a opportunity to stress the importance of being vigilant when discussing collecting items of value.


Quote:
Detectives with the Indianapolis,IN police department are investigating a homicide discovered earlier today (1/26/18). A male victim 75 years old was found dead of possible blunt trauma inside his residence. Detectives believe that coins/ collection in excess of $100,000 are missing from the residence along with other items such as guns and jewelry.

The suspect or suspects left in the victims Hummer but that vehicle has been recovered.

The investigation is on-going and there is no inventory list available at this time. However, dealers should be alert to any suspicious persons attempting to sell a large amount of coins in the Indianapolis or surrounding areas.

An update and list of stolen coins will be sent out as soon as possible.

Anyone with information contact:

I believe that this must be the local news story.

Even if he didn't blab about his possessions, putting a Hummer in your driveway is the equivalent of putting a target on your back.

The article listed by the OP has a small update stating that the police found the stolen Mustang. No other details since Jan 27th though.

I remember seeing this on the local news but I don't think they stated it might be coin related. Sad.
