It was a full house for the last Wichita Wagonmasters’ meeting before their annual chili cook-off. But there was room for one more. Timothy McGuigan was supposed to be sitting around this table.
“He was very active in the Wagonmasters and came to just about everything and participated… did all the not-for-profit stuff we did. He was always there,” Steve Dillard said.
Dillard isn't getting used to his friend not being around.
"Unfortuantly, I think about him a lot, because a lot of the things I do socially, Tim was involved with,” Dillard said.
McGuigan was found dead, with several gunshot wounds, inside his home more than two weeks ago. His co-workers at Kansas State Bank called police when he didn't show-up for work. Investigators say nothing pointed to robbery or a struggle.
Earlier on in the investigation, information came pouring into the Wichita Police Department, about where people last saw McGuigan. But the department says, lately, it hasn't received any tips.
"Now that they can't find anything, it just seems more and more likely maybe it was mistaken identity or something that was unexplainable,” Dillard said.
While police continue to investigate McGuigan's death, Dillard says the Wagonmasters will work on ways to honor McGuigan's caring spirit.
The police department says investigators have ruled-out McGuigan’s family members as suspects for now. If you have any information, call police.
