WESTON, Conn. — A Bridgeport man whose parents have been missing for a month — and who was arrested Tuesday on federal firearms charges — changed his story twice when questioned by police in the case, according to NBC Connecticut and its online copy of his arrest warrant.

Kyle Navin, 27, is a person of interest in the disappearance of his parents, Jeffrey and Jeannette Navin of Easton. 

Kyle Navin was arrested on a federal criminal complaint charging him with possession of a firearm by an individual who is an unlawful user of, or addicted to, any controlled substance. He was held without bond. 

In addition to detailing Navin's use of heroin, oxycodone and Xanax and the discovery of hypodermic needles and other drug paraphernalia in his Alpine Avenue home, the warrant spelled out the discovery of two firearms and ammunition.

The warrant also said that Navin gave police three different versions of what happened the last day his parents were seen, NBC Connecticut said, changing the details of when he saw his parents, what they discussed and what he did on the day they vanished. 

Other text messages in the warrant showed that Kyle Navin's father, Jeffrey, suspected him of hurting his mother, Jeanette, NBC Connecticut said. 

The arrest warrant includes the following transcript of their text conversation:

  • Jeffrey Navin: I’m not going home till I know mom is okay
  • Jeffrey Navin: Did you hurt mom?
  • Kyle Navin: No absolutely not. Why would you think
  • Jeffrey Navin: I go home and get framed for murder
  • Kyle Navin: Oh stop
  • Jeffrey Navin: I’m going to the police first

Later in the text conversation, Jeffrey Navin wrote to his son, "U R setting me up," the warrant said.

Investigators also found a receipt from Home Depot dated Aug. 5 for germicidal bleach, "Goo Gone" stain remover, a chemical to unclog drains and contractor cleanup bags, according to the affidavit.
