Truman’s wife reported him missing Sept. 6, saying she last saw him the day before, 警察说.

Investigators initially saw no signs of foul play, but several sources led them to believe Truman could be buried on his property. They linked his son to the killing.

He lived at the property with his parents, 警察说.

上个星期, Fairfax County police officials said Truman’s death was the fifth in the county this year where someone’s life had been taken by a child or sibling.

There’s not a string of commonality running through the increase in murders that we have this year beyond the fact that we have sons who are in some type of dispute with a parent, and on one occasion a sister, and that dispute results in a murder,” Chief Kevin Davis said last week.

Authorities said officers had responded to the Nguyen home in the past for various service calls, including domestic disputes. Investigators have not disclosed a motive for the killing.

Philip Nguyen is being held at the county adult detention center without bond.
