The Associated Press
ONTARIO, Ore. — An Oregon man has been fatally shot more than two decades after he killed his foster parents in a high-profile double murder.
The Ontario Police Department said in a press release that the body of 34-year-old Jacob Allen Colman was found in his home Tuesday afternoon, and no arrests have been made.
Police Chief Mark Alexander did not return a phone message seeking additional information.
Colman killed his foster parents, Pete and Janet Read, in Central Oregon in 1992. In a taped interview with police, the 12-year-old boy said he killed them because they made him do his homework.
Colman was released from the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility when he turned 21 in 2000.
His biological father, Richard Colman, said detectives have yet to speak with him about what happened. He declined further comment.
