Submitted by: Patricia, Sacramento

ANSWER: Fifteen-year-old Aaron Michael Crisp and his 48-year-old father, Michael Gregory Crisp, were found dead in their home on Bismarck Drive in North Highlands the night of Oct. 31, 2007.

The case remains unsolved.

According to stories in The Bee, Christine Crisp, Aaron's mother and Michael's ex-wife, discovered them about 9:20 p.m. when she went to the home after not hearing from her son for a day.

Sacramento County sheriff's officials said investigators found the bodies in separate areas of the house. According to coroner's officials, Aaron Crisp died of multiple gunshot wounds, and his father was shot in the head.

Investigators found no weapons. They also reported no signs of forced entry and no indication whether either victim knew the assailant.
