(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The investigation of the 2018 Memorial weekend murder of a Dearborn County man continues over two years later.

Detectives from the Indiana State Police, Versailles District have not forgotten or given up on resolving the murder of 73-year-old, Thomas Biedenharn. 

On May 28, 2018, Biedenharn was found dead in his home at Highridge Court, a Hidden Valley subdivision. An autopsy confirmed Biedenharn was victim of a homicide.

A $50,000 reward has been offered by the Biedenharn family to anyone that is able to provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for Thomas Biedenharn's murder.
