The crime

The Wichita Police Department is seeking your help to solve a homicide. On Wednesday, Sept. 7, Timothy McGuigan was supposed to meet his son for breakfast, but didn't show up. When he failed to come in to work, co-workers asked his son if he would check on him. The son went to his father's house in the 2500 block of North Woodridge and found his body. Police officers said he had been shot multiple times with a small-caliber handgun. There were no signs of forced entry, and robbery does not appear to be the motive.
