Preacher’s wife and son murdered in Miss.
The murder suspect, Paul Ellis Buckman, was later found dead in his apartment by police, according to a report by the area newspaper, SunHerald.
The AP reported that a neighbor saw the alleged murderer in the Ferguson home after the family’s 5-year-old son ran to her house, crying and screaming that “the bad man who hurt my brother” was now hurting his mother.
Buckman was out of jail on bond, after an arrest in July for sexual battery involving the Ferguson family.
The husband and father of the deceased, Paul Ferguson, preaches with the Orange Grove congregation in Gulfport, said Ted Knight, who also provided the photo. “This brother and his remaining children surely do need our prayers.”
The AP report mentioned that Trevor was confined to a wheelchair.
Members of the congregation comforted the other family members, report the SunHerald. An elder of the congregation said Buckman had attended their meetings before his July arrest.
