Official: Father, son found dead in Rockbridge County from murder-suicide

Officials say a father and son found dead in Rockbridge County were killed in a murder-suicide. 

Jovani Ligurgo, 2, and his father, 43-year old John Ligurgo III, were found dead inside a burned vehicle in Rockbridge County earlier this month. 

The Rockbridge County Sheriff's Office said John Ligurgo shot his son before fatally shooting himself.

The two went missing from Suffolk County, New York the day before.

Police wanted an Amber Alert, but state police said information they provided didn't meet the criteria to warrant one. 

Jovani's family, which had spread photos and updates on Facebook, said Ligurgo's unstable past behavior should have justified an Amber Alert.
