Livingston Parish deputies say it was a murder-suicide.

After investigating deputies believe 81 year old Gary Savoie was shot several times in the chest by his "unofficially adopted son"-- 24 year old Gary Salpietra.

Authorities say Salpietra then poured gasoline inside of their trailer, lit it up, and took his own life.

And maybe one of the most disturbing parts of this story is that family members say they weren't surprised.
