Father, son found dead in River Ridge home


River Ridge, La.- The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating an apparent murder-suicide Friday afternoon involving a 52-year-old man and his 16-year-old son.

Police say the boy's mother, and ex-wife of the man, became concerned when she had not heard from her son and called police to the 300 block of Celeste Avenue to check on them about 11 a.m. 

Investigators discovered the 52-year-old man in the front part of house suffering from a gunshot wound to an unknown part of his body and the teen's body was found in a bedroom with a gunshot wound to the head.

Police believe the boy may have been deceased for a significant amount of time before being discovered.

Investigators have yet to determine the sequence of events that lead to their death at this time.

The investigation remains ongoing and details are limited.

Stay tuned to Fox 8 for the latest information.
