Sheriff crime scene

A Glendive man was arrested Friday in connection to his father’s killing, four days after telling authorities he’d found the 80-year-old’s body.

Todd C. Fisher, 44, was taken into custody on Friday while at his father’s home at 122 Road 238 in Glendive. The son went to the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office at approximately 7 a.m. on Monday to report he’d found his father’s body at the home.

An autopsy conducted at the Eastern Montana Crime lab in Billings determined the elder Fisher died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

The investigation, a joint effort by the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office and the Division of Criminal Investigation, is ongoing. Dawson County Deputy County Attorney Brett Irigoin has sealed the affidavit in the case, according to a press release. Additional details may be released when available.

No court appearances have yet been scheduled in the case.
