A 76-year-old Louisiana man was found shot to death in his bed after his blind wife reported to police that she hadn’t heard from him in more than a day.

Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene and spoke with the woman at about 6 p.m. last Wednesday, and she told them she last heard from William Robert “Bob” Lang Jr at about 3 p.m. on Tuesday.

Deputies noted that all of Lang’s vehicles were on the property, and while walking the perimeter, spotted a broken glass window and asked to go into the home.

They found Lang lying in bed in the room where the broken window was seen, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The body was taken to the coroner’s office for an autopsy, but Assistant Coroner Steven Clanton ruled the death a homicide.

Investigators executed a search warrant and spoke with family, friends, and area residences and businesses. They were specifically looking for surveillance video of the area.
