NEW HAMPTON | A year has passed since someone apparently killed Carl "Kenny" Gallmeyer, and authorities are using the occasion to appeal for new information.
"As we (pass) this one-year anniversary of the death of Kenny Gallmeyer, we wish to thank the public for their assistance in this criminal matter and to thank the Gallmeyer family for their continued support and cooperation through these difficult times," Chickasaw County Sheriff Todd Miller said in a prepared statement.
"Our thoughts and prayers have been with the family from the beginning of this tragic event," Miller added.
The county's dispatch center received a request about 2:50 p.m. Oct. 4, 2012, to check on Gallmeyer's welfare. He lived at 1091 240th St. near Nashua but had not been seen for several days.
Authorities discovered Gallmeyer's body in the home, and the Iowa State Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death a homicide.
Gallmeyer was 70 years old.
"The circumstances surrounding Kenny's death are actively being pursued and investigated by the Chickasaw County sheriff and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation," Miller said.
To report information, call the sheriff's office at (641) 394-3121.
