BELOIT (WIFR) – Beloit police are looking for information after a man is found shot in the head in the middle of a country road.

Beloit Police say 36-year-old Edward Haley was found around midnight in the 2100 block of Newark Road on the city’s Northwest side. Haley was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Steve Franks just bought the property right next to where Haley was found.

“First reaction was I thought it was kind of weird that we were going to start out our first day of ownership with something like that happening but it could have been anyplace I guess. Nothing like that has happened out here in the last 30 years and I don’t forsee it happening again,” said Steve Franks.

Police are still investigating and have not made any arrests.
