Crime 56-Year-Old Is Arrested After Nationwide Manhunt for Allegedly Murdering and Dismembering His Elderly Father
Low vaccination rates among nursing home staff imperil elderly
Health care advocates and industry groups are raising the alarm over lagging vaccination rates in nursing home staff, threatening the progress the nation has made in protecting the vulnerable elderly. More than seven months after becoming eligible, only about 59 percent of staff in nursing homes and long term care facilities nationwide are partially or fully vaccinated, according to federal data compiled by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The numbers for staff vary by state, but reflect the nationwide rate for fully vaccinated adults.
The nationwide search has ended for a man who murdered and dismembered his elderly father, and fled the state, say authorities in Portage, Michigan. It turned out that investigators reportedly did not have to go too far for suspect Scott Sterffy, 56. He was arrested in the nearby city of Kalamazoo, according to.
It is unclear why Sterffy allegedly murdered his father, retired oral surgeon Dr. Thomas Aye, 82. Nonetheless, charges and available details indicate this was a brutal killing.
“Some severe injuries to the doctor that not only led us to seek murder charges but to also seek dismemberment and mutilation charges as well,” Director of Portage Public Safety Nicholas Armold said inreport.

One of Aye’s daughters checked up on him at his home last Sunday, July 25 when she could not otherwise contact him, according to authorities.
“She soon found her dad on the floor and immediately called police and fire, and then when we arrived it was obvious that the doctor had passed,” said Armold.
Investigators determined Sterffy had been staying there.
“We were able to determine that Scott was actually staying at the house during the time we believe the murder took place,” said Armold.
The murder sparked a nationwide manhunt, with investigators saying the 56-year-old had been in Chicago. Police reportedly suggested he was across the country in Seattle as recently as Thursday.
The search, however, ended pretty much where it began. It is unclear if Sterffy has an attorney in this matter. His arraignment is expected to take place Monday, authorities said.
