An 82-year-old man was murdered in his Virginia home and police say his son is responsible.
Last week, the Fairfax County police in Virginia announced they arrested 36-year-old Samy Hassanein.
Around 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 27, police responded to a home for a death investigation. There, they found Talat Hassanein, 82, unconscious at the bottom of the basement stairs, police said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The elderly man lived in the home with his two adult sons, who were both present when police arrived.
Officers found trauma to the victim’s upper body and determined his death was not accidental, police said. They arrested Samy Hassanein and charged him with second-degree murder.
Though, police have not released a motive in the case.
