Police are searching for dad JEFF BEDINGER, who is "suspected" of murdering his adult stepson, then abducting his 7-year-old son at gun point. The little boy was later "dropped off with relatives." That seems to be the pattern with these violent fathers. The point is NOT father-child together time, since the kids are often abandoned (as this one was) or killed.

TROY, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a 7-year-old boy who was taken from an Ohio apartment by his gun-carrying father following a homicide was dropped off with relatives and found safe in Indiana.
Police in Troy in southwest Ohio say they are still trying to find 50-year-old Jeff Bedinger, who is suspected in the Thursday killing of the boy's adult brother at the apartment the child shared with their mother.
Police say the 22-year-old man who was killed was Bedinger's stepson.
The shooting happened at about 4 p.m. Detective Capt. Chris Anderson says the boy's mother was out of the home prior to the shooting, "and arrived back to find this tragedy."
