Congressman Ryan Zinke offers his condolences to U.S. Senator Jon Tester and his family following news the Senator's nephew was reportedly murdered at home.

Rep. Zinke issued his statement on Twitter saying, "Please join me in sending your thoughts and prayers to the Tester family tonight. Very tragic news."

Homicide investigators suspect a nephew of Sen. Jon Tester, 35-year-old Bob Tester, may have been killed with an ax in his home near Spangle, Wash. His young daughter was reportedly home at the time.

Deputies found the victim in a pool of blood when they arrived on scene. His daughter told deputies the killer had a "sword and a knife" and she woke up to someone beating her father.

Sen. Tester’s press office confirmed the relationship and said “his family would prefer privacy during this difficult time.”
