Middleborough man faces arraignment in parents’ deaths

MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man charged with killing his parents is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on two counts of murder, authorities say.

Ryan True, 21, faces arraignment in Wareham District Court in the deaths of Renee True, 55, and David True, 52, who were found dead in their Middleborough home on Thursday morning, according to a statement from the office of Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz.

It was not clear if the suspect had an attorney.

Police went to the home at about 6:30 a.m. after getting a call from David True’s boss who said he had not shown up for work, police Chief Joseph Perkins said Thursday.

An officer forced entry into the home and found the bodies.

Police later located Ryan True at a different location. Authorities did not disclose a motive.

David True worked for a paving and excavation company in Easton, who in a Facebook post called him “truly one of the best men we have had the privilege of knowing.”

Renee True drove a bus for special education students for the town’s schools, the superintendent said in a statement.

The deaths were the first homicides in Middleborough since 2013, Perkins said.
