    William Robert 'Bob' Lang Jr (76) found shot dead in his bed after his blind wife reported him missing

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-dead-bed.html''

    Authorities in Louisiana say a 76-year-old man was found shot dead in his bed this week after his blind wife reported him missing, saying she had not heard from him in more than a day.

    According to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff?s Office, the death of 76-year-old William Robert 'Bob' Lang Jr, 76, has been ruled a homicide, but no suspects have been arrested as of Friday.

    At around 6pm on Wednesday, deputies arrived at the Lang couple's home in the 100 block of Levee Road in response to a missing person report.

    Lang's wife, who was described as visually impaired, told deputies that she had not heard from her husband since 3pm on Tuesday, 'which was unusual,' according to a statement from the sheriff's office.

    Deputies then began to interview the wife and noticed that all of Lang's vehicles were parked on the property.

    'The responding deputy observed a broken window glass on the residence and requested permission to enter the home to look for Mr. Lang,' according to the sheriff's office.

    The officers entered the residence and while walking in the area where there was broken glass they discovered Lang suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Officials have not explained why the wife did not hear the gunshots or the sound of breaking glass, or how she failed to find her husband's body in his bed for 27 hours.

    Following an autopsy, Lang's cause of death has been ruled a homicide.

    On Thursday, detectives spent the day interviewing family and friends and looking for surveillance video in the area.

    'Our investigators are working tirelessly in an effort to arrest the individual or individuals involved in the murder of Mr. Lang,' the sheriff's office stated. 'We extend our sympathy to the Lang family.'

    Social media posts suggest that in 2010, Lang, made an unsuccessful run for the US Senate, running as a conservative.

    You would think she would've heard. When someone is blind, aren't their other senses usually heightened?

    I had the same thought. I know it seemed to work that way with my blind dog.

    I turn the radio down to read street signs. That sounds like the same thing

    Maybe she wasn't home when it happened?

    I find this case odd and ran back across it while searching for another one. I looked and there are zero updates on it. It seems fishy to me.

    They probably didn't want to jail a blind woman. Don't they have to provide accommodations for the disabled during trial and in prison? It probably cost too much money and she's probably already sickly and has one foot in the grave.
