A tragic event took place on Monday night in Western Michigan. Pewamo Elementary School principal, George Heckman, and his 28-year-old son were found dead in a van in Bushnell Township on Monday night. 

It was on a rural road where Heckman murdered his disable son and then killed himself. Heckman missed the school board meeting Monday night and was supposed to become the school district's superintendent.

The preliminary autopsy report confirms both died due to gunshot wounds, where Heckman's appeared to be self-inflicted.
