According to court documents, Abbott was released without having to pay bail on Friday. He was being held on a murder complaint, but prosecutors have not filed charges.

Documents show, Abbott told someone at the truck stop, "...his son had been holding him captive in his house since December and he just shot his son and escaped."

The search warrants reveal, "items such as ropes, electrical cord, tape, chains and belts that have the appearance of having been used for the purpose of holding someone against their will."

Police also found blood, bloody clothing, guns and casings inside a motor-home.
