Joseph Bachuss
Farley Community
$1,000 reward
for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect(s).

Bachuss, 66, was found brutally beaten and stabbed on July 6, 2005, in his Farley community home in McCracken County. He was transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died July 10 of blunt force trauma to the head. The murderer(s) has not yet been identified, and brought to trial.

Family and friends called the attack senseless and unexplainable. Investigators said Bacchus was beaten with multiple blunt objects and stabbed multiple times during an apparent home invasion. His home was ransacked and Bachuss wasn't found until a neighbor and a nephew's fiance came to the house around 5:30 p.m. and forced their way in because the door was blocked by thrown objects. Bachuss' head and face were swollen and his only response was to say he was cold.

Among his Sunset Drive neighbors, Bachuss was known as a quiet man who kept to himself, but always loved helping people. He was considered a reliable handyman who had a knack for fixing lawnmowers, and spent most of the day working in his garage.
