Geist-area man victim of homicide

December 31, 2009

Detectives believe a Geist-area man found dead in his home was killed. At first, police thought Steve Pence, 49, who was legally blind, may have accidentally fallen down stairs, but investigators say he suffered blunt-force trauma to the head consistent with homicide; also, an upstairs window was broken in the house, which is in the 11000 block of Windhaven Court. His body was found Wednesday by a concerned neighbor. Police say they have few leads to go on.
