BOONTON TOWNSHIP — A Boonton Township man who used an axe and battery-operated pole saw to kill his dad had been battling addiction and mental illness, according to family and police paperwork. The family now set up a GoFundMe Account to help with expenses.

Around 1:15 p.m. on Sunday, December 24th, a blood-soaked axe and a battery-operated pole saw were discovered near the lifeless body of 61-year-old Gregory Meyer. This grim discovery occurred at the residence on Old Denville Road, where he lived with his 33-year-old son, Kyle.

“In losing Greg on Christmas Eve, our family lost a son, brother, uncle, and father. Along with our extended family and friends, we are grieving the death of a man who brought music, laughter, and love to our lives,” said Matthew Meyer, organizer of the GoFundMe page.

“We are grieved beyond words that Greg was taken from us by his own son, who for many years has been lost in the darkness of mental illness, alcoholism, and abuse of drugs legal and illegal. Our family is suddenly faced with many burdens from this unbearable tragedy. We appreciate your prayers, your well-wishes, and whatever assistance you may be able to share.”

Specifically, we need help to:

  • provide Greg a burial in the same cemetery where his father was laid to rest (~$10,000);
  • pay for all the related costs of casket, funeral home, transportation, etc. (more than $10,000);
  • provide for future support for Greg’s 94-year-old mother and other needs the family faces in this ongoing trauma.

    According to records, Kyle’s grandmother, who was also a resident of the same home, reported being alone with both Gregory and Kyle at approximately 12:50 p.m. She recounted hearing a heated argument between the father and son, which escalated into shouts, followed by screams, and then an eerie silence.

    In response to the unsettling events, she reached out to Kyle’s aunt, another member of the household, who promptly returned home. It was upon her arrival that she witnessed Kyle hastily leaving the premises. She proceeded to investigate the situation further and discovered Gregory’s lifeless body in the basement, as indicated in the complaint.

    Police documentation reveals a trail of blood leading from the basement where Gregory Meyer’s body was found, up the staircase, and into Kyle’s bedroom, adding to the disturbing details surrounding the incident.

    As of Thursday, December 28, over $7,750 had been raised.
