SHARON –– Sharon Police Detectives, collaborating with Massachusetts State Police Detectives, spent the weekend delving into the homicide at 78 Deerfield Road and are now seeking additional evidence from the community.
Authorities have made considerable headway in the case but are urging residents near Hampton Rd. to come forward with video surveillance captured between 8 p.m. on Nov. 1 and 7 a.m. on Nov. 2.
Any footage from home security systems, car dash cams, or other devices not yet reviewed by police could be crucial to the investigation.
Those with potential evidence are asked to contact the Sharon detectives at 781-784-1587.
The homicide investigation began after Brad Larson, 62, was found deceased with evident injuries in his home by a family member.
Police and fire department personnel who responded to the scene at 78 Deerfield Road pronounced Larson dead.
Neighbors were reassured by Sharon Police Chief Stephen M. Coffey on Friday morning that, despite the increased police presence, there was no immediate threat to the community based on current information.
Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey indicated that the body had been transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy, which could have been performed as early as the same day.
The Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services Section had already processed the crime scene for physical evidence the previous night.
To date, no arrests have been made, and the investigation is still actively ongoing.
