        WALTON — As the family of Bari Lynn Doyle prepares for her funeral, police said Tuesday they are looking into several leads in her brutal slaying.

        The 43-year-old Walton woman was found dead in her garage Friday, and medical authorities have said she died from blunt force trauma to the head.

        Investigators are still seeking information from anyone who might know of details surrounding Ms. Doyle's slaying in her home in the 10400 block of Travis Street, Boone County Detective Todd Kenner said.

        Ms. Doyle's mother, Miriam Doyle, remains upset about the death of her only daughter. She described her daughter as friendly and a lover of animals and nature.

        “She was a wonderful daughter. She had dogs and cats ever since she was little, and she loved to go camping,” said the elder Ms. Doyle.

        Bari Lynn Doyle was a Kentucky Colonel and had worked as a secretary for a now-defunct construction company. She was unemployed at the time of her death.

        Memorial services will be at 7 p.m. Friday at Stith Funeral Home at 7500 U.S. 42 in Florence. There will be no visitation. The body was cremated.

        Memorials should go to the charity of the donor's choice.

        Police are urging anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the neighborhood to call Boone County's Criminal Investigation unit, (859) 334-2120.
