When officers arrived at the home in the 9500 block of Woodberry Street, they found the victim’s body outside. An autopsy report says that Andres Hernandez suffered multiple injuries, including blunt force trauma and stab wounds.

While officers have ruled Andres Hernandez’s death as a homicide, they have not uncovered why Nigel Hernandez allegedly killed his father.
