BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) -- The adult son of a man missing in Jackson County is suspected of killing his father and burying his body.

Sheriff's officials say a tip led deputies to a stolen SUV. When deputies approached, a man believed to be the son fled into some woods. Sheriff Duane Waldera says deputies from Jackson and Trempealeau (TREMP'-eh-loh) counties, the State Patrol and state agents searched the area Wednesday. The 20-year-old son was arrested about 6 p.m. southeast of Hixton where he lived with his father.

While the son was being arrested, searchers found a buried body believed to be the father's on his property. An autopsy was scheduled Thursday.

WXOW-TV (http://bit.ly/16sJteG ) reports the son is being held in the Jackson County Jail.
