Man kills his autistic son with a shotgun before turning the gun on himself

A father killed his son with autism at his home on Friday in Beaufays. According to Sudinfo, he would have used a hunting weapon. The two bodies would have been discovered by the mother and wife, around 3:00 p.m., when returning home. The father was a doctor and practiced hunting.

Friday evening, the Liège prosecutor’s office confirmed the facts, without giving more details on the investigation still in progress.

But according to the first findings, it is a family drama. However, it will have to be confirmed by the medical examiner in the next few hours.
