Profile this case, lets see. He lost his job, had disagreements with his family and his father was critising him on his life.

Seems like a motive to murder his father. He will probably apologize to the family tomorrow night for his bad decision and quick anger.

If not that, probably suicide later because of his shame and have a Sayonara note left behind to apoligize.

I feel sorry for the grandchild who found his grandfather murdered and then finds out his father did it. This poor kid might the messed up for the rest of his life. Sad, just sad.

Read carefully. The kid who discovered the victim is the suspect's niece/newphew. None the less, I feel sorry for the kid too.

It should be "...a child of the suspect's sister.."

Nimbus: The victim was found by one of his grandchildren

For the victim it is his grandchild so oggidoggie is correct (well it could be a female).

Article wrote: "The victim was found by one of his grandchildren, a child of the suspects sister..." This means the grandchild who discovered the victim is the child of the murder suspect's sister.

Unless you are implying the parents of the kid who discovered the victim are siblings.
