Father is “Person of Interest” in MacKenzie Killing”

I mentioned yesterday about all the unsolved murders that have happened at MacKenzie park.

This one looks like it might be solved soon, as the father is a person of interest in the slaying.

I hate it when there are family tragedies around holidays.   While the father is only a  “person of interest” at this time, I would hate to think that any father could kill his own son.
