For a second day, school is called off at the Rogers County town of Verdigris. Law enforcers are still looking for 30-year-old Brian Benedict.

He is suspected of the Sunday night murder of his father. The murder took place in a home near the schools.

Rogers County authorities suspect Benedict is still in the area and could be heavily armed. No motive for the murder has been released. Benedict's mother found her husband's body.
