LAWRENCEBURG, IN (FOX19) - Family members of a man found dead in his Lawrenceburg home are now offering a $50,000 for information that leads to an conviction of the person responsible.

Thomas Biedenharn, 73, was found dead inside the residence on High Ridge Court in the Hidden Valley neighborhood on Memorial Day.

Biedenharn was a 1962 graduate of Elder High School and a prolific basketball player for the school.
