A Hockinson man is due to appear in court Tuesday morning on suspicion of homicide in connection with the death of his father.

When Edward F. Fisher, 69, disappeared Aug. 1 from the home he shared with son Troy A. Fisher, 42, he was thought by other family members to be on vacation.

When he didn't return home by Sept. 9, those family members called Clark County sheriff's deputies to report him missing from his home at 20808 N.E. 172nd St.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit began investigating the circumstances surrounding Edward's disappearance from his home, a manufactured home on acreage, which he has owned since 1998.

On Monday, detectives confronted Troy Fisher about his father's disappearance. At the conclusion of the interview Troy was arrested and booked into the Clark County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Troy will make his first appearance in court Tuesday morning.

More details should be available following the first appearance.
