Buffalo man in custody after his father found fatally shot

A Buffalo man is in custody in connection to the shooting death of his father, who was found dead inside his northern Minnesota cabin.
According to the Aitkin County Sheriff’s Office, the 62-year-old father, also from Buffalo, was reported missing July 26 after he hadn’t been heard from in three days.
The father and his 24-year-old son had gone up to their cabin in Aitkin County July 22.
The father’s other son went to the cabin after making “numerous unanswered calls” and found no vehicles around and the cabin’s main door padlocked.
Deputies were called in to search around the cabin and soon saw a dead man inside through a window.
After a search warrant was granted, investigators went inside and confirmed the victim was the father, who had “a single gunshot wound to the back of the head.”
The 24-year-old son is awaiting criminal charges in the Aitkin County Jail.
