Eagle County Deputies Charge 13-Year Old Boy With 1st Degree Murder

logo-eagle-county-sheriffEagle County Deputies have arrested a 13-year old Gypsum boy for 1st Degree Murder.  Yesterday, deputies tried to locate the boy’s father, to talk to him about a graffiti incident the boy was reportedly involved with.  He was supposed to meet with deputies last week, but never showed up.  The father’s employer also called authorities to tell them that the boy had called his father in sick several days in a row.  Suspecting something wasn’t right, deputies went to the home, where the boy told them his father was dead inside the home.  While deputies aren’t releasing any details into the cause of the man’s death, the boy was taken into custody and booked on charges of First Degree Murder.  Authorities are not releasing the identity of the boy or his father, until next of kin is notified.  If you have information about the crime, you’re urged to call the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office at (970) 328-8500.
