Robert Doerr’s daughter, best friend hope new info leads to justice

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Wednesday, Evansville Police named Larry Ali Richmond Sr. as a person of interest in the murder investigation of Robert Doerr.

A day later, his daughter Lindsey Doerr and his best friend Larry Wildt spoke with us about the announcement.

“Never in my life did I think that my dad would get shot," Lindsey said. "He never had an enemy. He was the most caring person I know.”

Lindsey says it was too hard for her to go to the police department’s announcement at the fire station. But Larry was there and stood alongside his EFD brothers as the lead detective announced Larry Ali Richmond Sr. as a person of interest.

Richmond Sr. is someone that Robbert Doerr knew.

“From what I heard, they went on double dates and stuff like that and acted as my dad’s friend,” said Lindsey Doerr.

“There is anger because of the execution-style murder it was,” said Wildt.

Lindsey and Larry say they never knew Richmond Sr. and still have never met the man. Now that the public knows his name and has seen his face, they hope they are closer to solving this heartbreaking mystery.

“Someone knows something, I have a feeling," said Lindsay. "Someone knows something and they’re just not saying it.”

But even if Richmond Sr. becomes more than just a person of interest, they won't find closure until whoever is responsible is convicted.

“The closure will come with guilty conviction. . . for one, two, three, four, however many are involved,” said Wildt.
