Police: Boy lived with father's corpse after murder

COLORADO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Investigators in Colorado say a teenage boy shot and killed his father at their home, then lived alone with the corpse for nearly a week before it was discovered.

Authorities say sometime last week, the teen got his hands on a rifle and fired at least two shots to his father's head.

The boy allegedly ended up calling his dad's work every day and calling him in sick.

After a few days, a supervisor got suspicious and called police.

When police went to the home they say the boy told them his father was dead.

The teen is in a juvenile facility charged with first-degree murder.

A motive is still not clear.
