CANTON, OH (WOIO) - At the home of Eugene Render his front porch light is still on. Now there is no one to turn it off. The 88 year old was murdered in his kitchen Friday night on November 22.
Carolyn Rue, a neighbor, is sickened over this shocking crime. She says, "It's a shame."
A friend tells 19 Action News Eugene was a kind man who loved to mow his lawn and did the same for his neighbor. He may have been an easy target because he lived alone.
