Kentucky State Police said a Clay County man was found murdered in his own home Thursday night.

Troopers said Earl Woods, 74, was found dead by a family member around 7 p.m.

The state medical examiner said Woods had multiple sharp and blunt blows to his head and neck.

Family and friends said they couldn't think of a reason why anyone would hurt the wheelchair-bound man.

"They were a heartless monster. That's the only thing I can think of," said daughter-in-law Dena Woods.

Woods said her father-in-law would have been 75 on Christmas Eve.

State police said there were no suspects in the case as of Friday, but were continuing to investigate leads.

Investigators ask that anyone with information about the case to call state police at 1-800-222-5555.
