Alleged killer's parents: We tried to get son help

WATERTOWN, Wis. (AP) -- Todd and Tammy Zoellick say they tried for years to get help for their troubled son, the Watertown man accused of killing a man to steal his sports car.

  They say they knew 20-year-old Travis Zoellick had anger issues, and they bent over backwards trying to help him.

  Instead they could only watch last week as hospital personnel removed their son from life support, hours after he shot himself at home with police closing in.

  Authorities believe Travis Zoellick and his girlfriend kidnapped 31-year-old Haroon Khan of Milwaukee last week.

  Zoellick allegedly stabbed Khan to death and buried him on his parents' property.

  Todd Zoellick says he and his wife are devastated, and that they feel for Khan's family.
