    Peter S. Ruckman, Jr. son of Peter S. Ruckman (deceased) of Pensecola, Fl., killed his two sons then took his own life it was discovered this morning.

    He was estranged from his wife Heidi, and was in a custody battle over the two boys.

    He apparently learned his marriage skills from his father, from whom he was apparently estranged.

    Very sad; the son of a flawed genius

    Sad news. Looks like Ruckman, Jr. had made a name for himself in his own field (political science) and quite apart from his father.
