SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Federal authorities say a father charged along with his son in the slaying of a Utah train worker told police the younger man was a killer who kept bloody knives as trophies.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/2agPuOA) that the information came out in a search warrant affidavit filed by investigators who want to test 22-year-old Dereck Harrison’s hair.

They say 52-year-old Flint Harrison talked to police when he turned himself in to Wyoming police following a manhunt in May.

Police say the two men were on the run after allegedly tying up five people in a basement when they killed worker Kay Ricks.

The newly unsealed warrant was signed two days after Flint Harrison killed himself in jail last week.

Dereck Harrison’s attorney Michael Edwards declined to comment on the father’s allegations.
