Lebanon Police Officer Found Dead in Home
LEBANON, Ind. -- A longtime member of the Lebanon Police Department was found dead inside his home Monday morning.
Officer Terry L. Nelson, Jr., 42, was found just before 12:30 a.m. by members of the Lebanon Police Department and Boone County Sheriff's Office.
Nelson was a lifelong resident of Lebanon and 18-year veteran of LPD.
