Police have no suspects and no clear motive in the killing of a bank executive in his northeast Wichita house, authorities said Thursday.

Timothy McGuigan, 61, was found shot to death shortly before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in the front room of his house in the 2500 block of North Woodridge, Lt. Ken Landwehr said.

McGuigan was a senior vice president at Kansas State Bank, and when he didn't show up for work, co-workers called his son to check on his welfare. McGuigan's son found him when he went to check on him, Landwehr said.

There was no sign of forced entry, no sign of struggle and no indication any property or valuables had been taken, he said.

"It does not appear to be a random act," Landwehr said.

Detectives have interviewed family members and some neighbors, he said. Police have no reason to suspect McGuigan's son in the shooting, Landwehr said.

McGuigan's last confirmed contact was a telephone conversation with his son at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. He was divorced, Landwehr said.

McGuigan had been with Kansas State Bank for more than three years. Based in Manhattan, the bank has a branch at 1424 S. Maize Road.

An autopsy was conducted Thursday, Landwehr said.

This is the 20th homicide of the year in Wichita.
