Bobby Glenn Ford was 28 when he died. He was found deceased in his home on April 13, 2011. An unknown killer had entered Bobby’s home on that morning and shot him in the head. When police investigated the homicide, they learned that Bobby was growing marijuana in his home.
Based on my conversations with family and friends, the Indianapolis Police department think his death may have been over a drug deal gone bad. However, those close to Bobby don’t believe this. They have stated that he was likely murdered by someone close to him for more personal reasons.

This case is unusual. There is no information about it anywhere. If you do an online search, it’s almost as Bobby Ford never existed. There are no pleas for justice, no local media stories or any local news videos covering the story.

For this story I spoke to Bobby’s sister April Hudson, Emily Nixon and Mike McBride. Emily and Mike were two of Bobby’s closest friends. Both loved him and are angry that his homicide isn’t solved.

If you know anything, his family is requesting that you call in a tip and help them get justice. Bobby has 3 children that deserve answers.
