Investigators release more information about a burglary that led to the death of a Glasgow man.
Glasgow police responded to a possible burglary at 312 Green Acres Drive, at 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 2, 2007. When they arrived, they found 36-year-old Joseph Nunn in his bed, dead with three gunshot wounds to the back of his head. Police believe Nunn was killed with a 22-caliber weapon. No arrests have yet been made but police say they do have suspects in mind.
Major Hugh England said there were two people who broke into Joe Nunn’s apartment. They were wearing black clothes and ski masks. England said Nunn’s wife, Amy and their two children were home at the time of the intrusion.
“An adult female was present in the home, heard the intrusion and as she entered the kitchen area she was struck in the head by an object that knocked her to the ground and she observed the two intruders exit the place,” England said.
Nunn’s wife was not treated for her injuries and their children weren’t hurt but now investigators say there are still many unanswered questions.
“There are many inconsistencies in the allegations and although we have not completely ruled out unknown intruders we are certainly looking into other possibilities,” England said.
Dana Reagan has lived in this neighborhood for more than 40 years and said nothing like this has ever happened here. Reagan also said her and other neighbors are concerned with what happened in their neighborhood, for many reasons.
Although neighbors wouldn’t talk to us on camera, they say their biggest question is whether this was a random burglary or if the burglar actually knew Joe Nunn.
Neighbors who knew the Nunn family say they were nice people and never caused any trouble. Police say the investigation is ongoing and they will release details as they come.
“The Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office and the Glasgow Police Department want everyone to know that all wheels are turning and we are working diligently in the investigation in order that a complete, thorough and accurate investigation is concluded and an arrest is made in the death of Joe Nunn,” England said.
