Troy Fisher Kills Dad Edward, But He's Too Lazy to Destroy the Evidence

That's where Troy lived with his 69-year-old father, Edward, where they worked together in a forklift repair business. But Edward disappeared that day. Relatives assumed he was on vacation.
When time went on and still no one heard from them, Troy told them that his dad had reconnected with an old flame from the '60s. He'd jumped aboard her yacht and sailed back to her native Germany, where they apparently don't have phones that can call America.
Since forklift repairmen are rarely so fortunate as to be swept off their feet at age 69 by a rich lady with a yacht, Edward's relatives became suspicious and called the cops.
But when detectives visited Troy, he had a different story to tell. He said Edward came home angry one night with a gun and an argument ensued. As they wrestled for the weapon, it went off and hit Edward in the head. Troy naturally shot him a second time because... well... because.
Then he burned Edward's body in a burn pile and threw away some bloody carpet in a remote area of Washington.
But Troy may be the laziest murderer ever. A month after the killing, he still hadn't destroyed all the carpet. Detectives found some in the bed of a truck outside the house, and some pieces still inside the house. There was also a hole in the living room floor where he'd cut out bloody carpet and flooring, but hadn't bothered to repair it.
He going to get to it as soon as he got done fixing another batch of Hot Pockets.
After two hours of interviewing our moron, police decided this probably wasn't an innocent argument turned deadly. Troy's been charged with first-degree murder.
