A Smyrna-area man is the victim of an apparent homicide.


Delaware State Police detectives are investigating the apparent homicide of a Smyrna-area man.

The victim, Kenton W. Wolf, 61, was last seen Feb. 12, although detectives said relatives had talked to him as late as Feb. 14.

Police spokesman Sgt. Walter Newton said Wolf’s coworkers called after the man had not come in for work for several days. Troopers went to Wolf’s home on Ashfield Court, Willow Court, on Feb. 19 and found him dead. There was no sign of forced entry, although evidence at the scene suggested a homicide, Newton said.

Police are looking for Wolf’s car, a green 1994 Volkswagen Jetta, bearing Delaware license plate 533333. They also advise that if spotted, no one should approach the car as its occupants are considered extremely dangerous.

Wolf’s remains were turned over to the state medical examiner to determine the exact cause and manner of death.

Anyone with information on this crime or the whereabouts of Wolf’s car is asked to call the state police homicide unit at 302-531-5892.
