Reward offered in Moorhead man’s killing
MOORHEAD — Police here are offering a $1,000 reward for information in the killing of an 87-year-old Moorhead man.
Volochenko’s body was discovered Wednesday night at his home by a friend. Preliminary autopsy results conducted on Volochenko indicate he was killed in an apparent assault. Police have said he died as a “result of trauma by homicidal violence.”
Police also say Volochenko’s black walking cane is missing, and they have urged area residents, particularly those in the downtown area, to look through their property for the cane and anything else unusual.
Police haven’t said that they suspect the missing cane was used in the assault.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is helping with the investigation.
