Cortez, Colo. (AP) The 20-year-old son of a missing Colorado man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after dismembered body parts were found encased in concrete buckets at the home of his father.

Jeremiah Berry is being held on a half-million-dollar bond.

Relatives of 42-year-old jack berry say he had been missing for several months. The body parts were found in his family home and two other undisclosed locations.

Police say a CT scan done at a hospital revealed the body parts in the buckets. Investigators are awaiting tests to determine whose they were.

Police say the younger Berry has helped with the search.
