July 2, 2009

When officers arrived, they found the victim, 36-year-old Rick Glum (shown in photo), down on the side of the road. A motorist noticed Glum on the side of the road and called police. The initial information revealed that Glum died as a result of a stab wound.

On the morning of the incident, Glum was last seen by a family member leaving on a bicycle a few hours prior to being found. Detectives determined that the incident occurred approximately once block west of where Glum was found.

Although detectives have been working this case for almost two months, little solid information has been developed. Detectives are hopeful that someone may have seen Glum in the hours prior to his death or witnessed the incident.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Silent Witness at 480-948-6377 or the Mesa Police Department at 480-644-2211.
