Plane Collision Marks 2nd Fatal Tragedy for Family in a Week

A relative told The Associated Press, a collision between a small plane and an F-16 fighter jet that killed a father and son was the second fatal tragedy to strike their family in just four days.
Michael Johnson and his son, Joseph, died when the Cessna 150 flown by the younger Johnson was torn apart Tuesday in the accident with the jet.
On Saturday, Michael Johnson's brother and sister-in-law were found dead at their home in Missouri. Police said the couple's 16-year-old grandson has been charged with second-degree murder in the slayings.
James Johnson and his wife, Beverly, were found dead in their home in a neighborhood of manicured houses with large yards surrounded by farm fields just outside St. Joseph, Missouri.
In South Carolina, authorities found Michael Johnson's body in the Cooper River in a sparsely populated area. He was 68. Recovery teams are still searching the same area for his son, who was 30.
