13-year-old Colorado boy accused of killing father

........................................................................................................................................................................................

GYPSUM, Colo. — A 13-year-old Gypsum boy is suspected of killing his father and trying to conceal the slaying.

The boy was arrested Monday after a tip from the father’s employer led deputies to check on the family. The teenager answered the door and told them his 50-year-old father was dead in the home.

It’s not clear how long he had been dead.

The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office says the boy was being investigated for graffiti before the slaying. Spokeswoman Jessie Mosher says the father didn’t show up for a meeting with deputies Wednesday to discuss the investigation. The father’s employer said the son called in to report his father sick several days in a row. He grew suspicious and reported the situation Monday.

The father’s name hasn’t been released yet.
