Update: More information is emerging about the tragic murder of Routt County's Asher Lesyshen-Kirlan, age nine.

According to local law-enforcement reports, Asher's parents, Lisa Marie Lesyshen and Michael Kirlan, were going through a separation at the time Lisa shot Asher multiple times, killing him.

Afterward, she told Michael to come upstairs and kill her.

As we reported in our original coverage, on view below in its entirety, Michael phoned 911 just before 3 a.m. on Wednesday to say that his son was dead and his wife had a gun at their home, in the community of Stagecoach. Deputies soon discovered Asher's body, as well as Lisa's; she'd shot herself but was still alive.

Here's a photo of Asher with Michael -- part of a gallery mainly consisting of images supplied by readers of Steamboat Today, which is doing the heavy lifting on this story:

In the wake of the shooting, Steamboat Today revealed that a post had appeared on Michael's Facebook page alluding to an alleged affair. It was subsequently deleted, raising the possibility that someone other than Michael had shared it. However, neither the woman pictured nor a friend of Michael's would comment on the situation, and the sheriff's office declined to discuss the matter in the context of a possible motive for the shooting.

Now, however, more information is emerging, with Routt County Sheriff Garrett Wiggins holding a press conference and his office releasing a police report obtained by Steamboat Today.

The report reveals that Michael and Lisa were in the process of separating, although no divorce papers had been filed.

Also: When Michael called for emergency services, he said Asher had been shot but was still breathing -- he subsequently died of multiple gunshot wounds -- and Lisa was upstairs. A quote from the report: "Lisa Lesyshen was telling him to come and kill her."

Asher had been shot in his bedroom; Michael had moved him to the living room. As for Lisa, deputies and Oak Creek police who responded to the scene found her beside her own bed with a single gunshot wound, although three shell casings were in the vicinity of a nearby revolver.

She was conscious and has reportedly confessed to killing Asher. At the hospital, she also asked for an attorney.

Here are two more photos of Asher, followed by our previous coverage, marked by several videos showing the boy during much happier times.

"...three shell casings were in the vicinity of a nearby revolver."  Once again a reporter demonstrates utter ignorance of firearms.

That little guy had great potential and seemed amazing. Why she chose to do this only she knows. Going thru a separation is no reason to destroy An innocent life of a child. She ruined lots of lives now. :(

The ONLY reason the mom lived is she didn't have a magazine containing a hundred rounds .

Good thing they kept a Firearm in the house ... to protect against "government tyranny" ... or "criminals" ...

Yet another one of the NRA's oft quoted "Law Abiding Gun Owners" ... right up to the moment they pull the trigger.

@himmy1984 Gotta love the idiots who can't at least make an effort to present and support their own arguments.  At least blame it on a homosexual, commie-liberal agenda, flouride-in-the-water conspiracy so I can stop yawning and have a laugh, instead.

Juan_leg = white night. You obviously do not know about the war us men and boys are fighting. Paternity fraud is rampant in the U$A, 30 million abortions by females yet males can not abort financial responsibility, the domestic violence industry is fraud perpetrated against men....mostly, with no help for battered men or boys constantly subjected to psychological terrorism...what better way to brain wash boys than to crush their self worth? let Me guess, they should man up?

@betweenthelines ... are you unable to comprehend the symptoms of the underlying condition for which they began taking medication?

Mental illness is not a "side effect" of medication being given to someone who is MENTALLY ILL.

@DonkeyHotay @CloudGang  At least I admit & acknowledge the fact I hardly know shit . Still I DO listen and do so w/o religious restraint . 

You'd be hard pressed to find someone more honest and humble than myself in these blogs . When I don't know what in the hell I'm talking about, I shut the fuck up and listen . Great example was my 'No' vote on Amd 64 . I had been running off at the mouth telling everyone to vote 'YES' because I was among the rest of the stupid population . I didn't insult those who CORRECTED my thinking, I thanked them sincerely . Otherwise, I'd be a stupid f'n 'N' word ......

@CloudGang  <--- Wishes every night he was white like Hotay and I . May I suggest importing an African tribesman & taking him along w/ you EVERYWHERE . Consistently refer to him as a 'Black Ass Nigger' as you will be several shades 'lighter' colored, OBVIOUSLY noticeable  to everyone !

Or,  Fox News has a great way of making non-arrested, black people many shades lighter . They often show our President resembling the 'shade' of a tribesman .

No need for a thanks . Just lending you a hand in achieving your dream of becoming white .....

But go ahead and keep making excuses for your illiteracy ... it's worked so well thus far in your life.

President George Bush claimed he was told by God to invade Iraq and attack Osama bin Laden's stronghold of Afghanistan as part of a divine mission to bring peace to the Middle East, security for Israel, and a state for the Palestinians.

"I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, 'George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan.' And I did, and then God would tell me, 'George go and end the tyranny in Iraq,' and I did."

@CloudGang  ... perhaps she was reading a different Bible chapter ...
