Popular Dallas food reporter Stacy Fawcett and her 17-year-old son are dead after police say they were attacked by Fawcett's eldest son early Friday.
Police say Fawcett, who regularly appeared on WFAA's weekend morning shows, and Josiah Utu were stabbed to death by 19-year-old McCann Utu, Jr. The elder son stabbed himself at the scene and later died at a hospital, according to authorities.
McCann had reportedly been battling depression after suffering a traumatic brain injury several years ago.
