Names Released in Boscobel Murder-Suicide

The Boscobel Police Department has identified the father and son who died in a murder-suicide in Boscobel earlier this week. 32 year old Christopher Mezera, and his father, 58 year old Russell Mezera, both of Boscobel, died from gunshot related injuries.

Officers determined Christopher and Russell were both seated in an enclosed porch area of the home on Wednesday night, May 17th. At some point during the night, Christopher fired two rounds at Russell, striking him once in the chest. Christopher then turned the gun on himself and took his own life.

A motive is not known, and alcohol is believed to be a factor.

The incident remains under investigation.
