Who is Larry Richmond Sr?

Local News

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – While Larry Richmond Sr is considered a person of interest in the 2019 death of Evansville firefighter, Robert Doerr, this isn’t the first time Richmond Sr has been connected to a murder investigation.

In the late 1990s, a then-17-year-old Richmond Sr pleaded guilty to the shooting death of 70-year-old James Montgomery. Richmond Sr was sentenced to 45 years in prison and five years probation but was released from prison in March, 2018.

Less than a month after Doerr’s death, Richmond was arrested in connection to another investigation after his son Larry Richmond Jr tipped off police. Police say they found a box of guns with all of the serial numbers removed buried in his backyard. Richmond Sr was originally charged in state court for a firearms violation but the case has since been moved to federal court.

In a press conference Wednesday, Evansville Police say Richmond Sr had a prior relationship with the Doerr family.
