In a diary found at the family home, police allege Erik wrote that he wanted to “eliminate” his parents.

The diary, which was reportedly found in Erik’s bedroom at the family’s Winnebago, Wis., home, said it wanted to make his parents’ deaths less grim.

A bloviated entry about wanting to make it look like his parents’ death got lost on a walk.

Police were drawn to David and Jan’s cheese business on March 19 following a welfare check.

An unidentified family member led police to the family home where the victims lived with their son.

Police discovered the couple in their bedroom, wrapped in blankets and apparently dead from gunshot wounds.

Two firearms believed to be the murder weapon were found in the kitchen, police said.

A loaded AR platform rifle was placed on the table, while a 9mm handgun was found in the trash, according to the police complaint.

The note was discovered in the house after further investigation.

Police said they later found Erik at a local YMCA, where he declined to discuss any incident with his parents.

Police arrested Erik and charged him with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide.

His bail was set at $1 million.

The charges are a Class A felony – if proven guilty, Erik faces life imprisonment.
