Tinker Air Force Base
Feb. 25, 2008
A recently divorced Air Force technical sergeant fatally shot his son, Dylan, then his daughter, Jourdain, 9, after a fight with their mother inside their base home during a custody exchange. Dustin Thorson, 35, then killed himself.
The mother, Michelle Thorson, said she heard shots after fleeing the home for help. She said Dustin Thorson had attacked her with a stun gun. They had divorced Feb. 14, 2008, but agreed to leave the children in the base home and rotate staying with them.
Dustin Thorson was diagnosed in 2007 as suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after returning from Iraq as a war hero.
