I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Ok, this may just be sticking tumblers. Have your son use a hammer and GENTLY, repeat GENTLY, tap around the key cylinder has he tries to turn the key. The will usually unstick the tumblers and allow the key to turn fully
