The bodies of a father and his 49-year-old son were found covered in blood in their home in the Vrahati area of Corinth Tuesday, authorities said.
Police discovered the bodies after they were notified by neighbors, who reported hearing gunshots.
A handgun was found next to the father’s body, which was lying in the yard, while that of the younger man was inside the house.
According to reports, the initial investigation is working on the assumption that the father killed his son and then committed suicide.
However, police are also looking into reports that the son had a mental illness.
