STAFF REPORT

LIBERTY — A Stanford man died over the weekend in Casey County after being shot in the chest.

According to a press release from the Kentucky State Police, troopers were called to 104 Cannon Road in Liberty at 1:11 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 27, after Thomas Robert Moser, 53 of Stanford, was shot following an altercation with Leonard Walls, 71 of Liberty.

Moser had gone to the residence where his estranged girlfriend and others had been working on home improvements, according to Trooper Billy Gregory. Moser got into an argument with Walls, which escalated, before Walls allegedly shot Moser.

Moser was transported to the Casey County Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Detective BJ Burton is investigating. No arrest has been made, but the findings are going to be presented to the Commonwealth Attorney’s office. There is no timeline at the moment on when that might happen, Gregory said, and it is unclear what charges could be filed, if any.

Fox & Friend Funeral Home, Stanford, is handling Moser’s funeral arrangements.

A public graveside memorial service will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 2, at the Chapel of Buffalo Springs Cemetery with Dr. Mike Powers officiating the service. Burial follow the service.

A Visitation will be held 10 a.m., until service time, Saturday at the cemetery chapel.
