Authorities have ruled that a Spencer man has been the victim of a homicide.

State Medical Examiner James A. Caplan, MD, says Kenneth Glenn Boggs, 44, of Locust Avenue, died Wednesday of a homicide, at the hands of unknown culprits.

Reports indicate Boggs had been drinking at a bar. Likely after leaving the establishment, he was severely beaten, causing trauma.

Returning to his residence late at night, he went to bed. Occupants of the house were unable to awaken him the following morning, and the Roane County Emergency Squad was summoned.

The Spencer Police Department is investigating.

Acting Police Chief John Caldwell could not be reached for comment.

Funeral services will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. at the John H. Taylor Funeral Home in Spencer.
