FOREST PARK, Okla. - More than a month later, the murder of a 53-year-old man, who was found dead in his Forest Park home, is no closer to being solved.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office says they have no motive, no clues and no suspects.

Anthony “Tony” Lewis died from blunt head trauma and stab wounds to his neck.

Family members discovered his body inside his home along Norcrest Dr. back on Nov. 8.

His family is begging someone to come forward with information before Christmas.

They say closure will only come when the case is solved.

However, investigators say they are having a hard time piecing this one together.

Mark Myers, with the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office, says in most homicide cases, they have some sort of lead.

“In this case, we have absolutely nothing,” said Myers. “It's pretty much been the same since day one, in that we have received absolutely no information to assist us in this investigation.”

“It's just as much a mystery to us as to anyone else,” said Shalonda Sanders, Anthony Lewis' niece.

The victim's family was out-of-town on Tuesday, but spoke with NewsChannel 4 in an interview just days after the murder.

“It's been very difficult,” Sanders said.

Family members say Anthony had been dealing with an illness, but they never expected he would die at the hands of someone else.

“This was a very violent homicide,” Myers said.

According to the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office,  Lewis died from blunt trauma to his head and stab wounds to his neck.

Investigators found no signs of a forced entry.

His family says they went to his home to pick him up and found his front door cracked open, but there was nothing missing.

The sheriff's office says they believe someone must know something about the crime.

They say even the smallest clue could turn out to be a huge break in the case.

“Investigators right now are at the end of the road. We need just a single piece of information to bring this to the next level,” said Myers.
