Ryan True, 21, has reportedly been charged with murder after his parents’ bodies were discovered in their shared Massachusetts home Thursday, Newsweek reported.
A co-worker of one of the True parents contacted the police after noticing they had not shown up at work, according to Newsweek. The police reportedly arrived to perform a well-being check at the True home early Thursday morning.
Upon arriving, police found two bodies, identified as Renee and David True — the parents of Ryan True, Newsweek reported. All three individuals lived together in the Middleborough home, according to 7News Boston.
“Middleborough Police contacted the Massachusetts State Police Detectives assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office and the scene was secured and an investigation commenced,” law enforcement said in a statement reported by Newsweek.

“This is a tragic and horrifying situation for, obviously, the family of the deceased and also here in the town of Middleborough,” Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz said, reported NBC Boston. “This is a beautiful little community and this doesn’t happen here very often.”
“I don’t think anybody knew there was anything going on, any issues. Nice, wonderful people, you can’t say anything bad about them,” a neighbor of the True family told NBC Boston.
