CYPRESS — The 15-year-old runaway son of an Emmy-award winning television sound engineer has been arrested on suspicion of shooting his adopted father to death on Father's Day, police said Tuesday.
Police discovered the body of Gayle Hansen, 51, on his family room floor in Cypress Monday afternoon, four hours after both his sister and his girlfriend reported him missing. Hansen, an ABC television employee, had been shot twice and had been dead since early Sunday morning, police said.
There was no sign of a struggle or forced entry, police said, but Hansen's car was missing from the home in the 5500 block of Citrus Court.
On June 1, Hansen had reported his son as a runaway, police said. The teen-ager also had run away from home in Paramount, where the two had lived until about two months ago.
