EVANS CITY, Pa. —

Police are seeking a missing rifle that may have been used to kill a Butler County man at his truck repair shop.

Officials said Robert C. "Bob" Gaurrich was found dead late Friday night at his Evans City shop by his girlfriend and her friend.

“We looked all over for him and finally found him outside behind the garage face down in the snow,” Gaurrich’s fiance Jessica Hoover said.

State police said they're looking for a .30-30 rifle that Gaurrich kept at the shop. No one has been charged with the shooting.

Police recovered a .30-30 caliber shell casing near a door to the garage. They suspect Gaurrich may have known his killer because the shop was not burglarized.

Investigators remained at the repair shop well into Saturday afternoon, more than 12 hours after Gaurrich's body was found.

Hoover said police would only tell her that they suspected foul play was involved.

"He was wonderful," Hoover said. "He took the shirt off his back for anyone. He'd do anything for you."

According to Hoover, Gaurrich was a guy who had no enemies and a friend to everyone.
