Police say they have no new information regarding the recent homicide of a 42-year-old Lawrence man.

On the evening of Sept. 16 police found Lenny Dwayne Morrison dead in the 400 block of Ohio Street, Lawrence Police Capt. Anthony Brixius said in a news release.

Officers also found a woman with "significant injuries," Brixius said. She was treated at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and released the next day.

Brixius said Morrison's death was determined to be a homicide.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Amy Rhoads said Monday that no updates were available regarding the ongoing investigation into the homicide.

Possible that the women with "significant injuries" got tired of being a punching bag and shot him?

That's what I saw online. People saying they knew her stated that she had been abused for a long time. I don't expect to see any charges, sounds like self defense and the guy deserved what he got.
