Tan is currently serving 20 years in prison on federal gun charges. He was originally charged with murder in his father's shooting death back in 2015 at their Pittsford home.

After a jury failed to reach a verdict, the judge tossed out the murder charge.

Then in 2017, Tan was charged for illegally buying a gun to be used in a crime. He pleaded guilty last September.

NBC's Dennis Murphy reports on the final twist in the case in "Return to the House of Secrets."

Watch the episode on Friday at 10 p.m. on News10NBC.
