Mr Menzel died after being shot in the leg about 7:00am last Monday at a home in Gleneagle, north of Beaudesert.
A 13-year-old girl was in the house at the time of the incident.
The girl witnessed paramedics trying to save Mr Menzel’s life after he lost a significant amount of blood.
A man, 40, was also hit on the head with a hammer during the break-in.
He was treated for minor injuries.
Police believe the home invasion was not a random attack.
