Plano father found murdered in garage

- A Plano father was found murdered in his garage Saturday afternoon.

A warrant is out for the arrest of 28-year-old Kenneth Midgley Jr. for the murder of his namesake father, 50-year-old Kenneth Midgley.

Plano police said another family member called and asked police to do a welfare check at the family's home off of Nocona Drive around 2:30 Saturday. That's when officers found the father's body in the garage.

Police will not say how he was killed or whether anyone else was home at the time. Neighbors said he lived there with his wife, and that the couple had four grown children.

"It's always concerning when something like this is going on three or four houses away from you," said neighbor Dave Untch, "I feel sorry for the family and they're going to have a rough time getting through this."

Police are now searching for their suspect, who may be driving a 2009 charcoal GMC sierra with the Texas license plate BVL-5331. However, they believe he has already crossed the border into Mexico. 

They said the crime is an isolated incident, and they do not believe that Midgely is a danger to others.
