PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) – Two days after a Plano father was found murdered at his home, police are still searching for the suspect in the crime — his son.

Police found Kenneth Midgley Sr. dead inside of his garage over the weekend and now police say his son, Kenneth Midgley Jr., is on the run.

Police have been investigating the elder Midgley’s murder since Saturday when a call from a worried family member led to a gruesome discovery on Nocona Drive, just west of Ohio Drive. Midgley Sr.’s wife was out of town during the incident.

As word spreads about the murder of Midgley Sr., more and more people are posting about him on Facebook. Many describe the 50-year-old as a friendly Boy Scout leader who was a positive influence to many young men.

Police won’t say how Midgley Sr. died, but a murder warrant was issued for his 28-year-old son. Investigators said that the son was a student at the University of Southern California some years ago, but was currently living with his father. The son also speaks fluent Spanish.

Police believe that this is an isolated incident of family violence, and the public is not in danger. Midgley Jr. may be driving a four-door, charcoal-colored 2009 GMC Sierra pickup with the Texas license plate BVL-5331. Anyone who might know the whereabouts of Midgley Jr. or has information on the murder of his father is asked to call 911.
