Former Amishman Eli Stutzman‘s death has been ruled a suicide.


The father of Little Boy Blue, suspected in three other deaths in addition to that of his son, killed himself in a Fort Worth, Texas apartment last week.

Gregg Olsen, who chronicled the case in Abandoned Prayers, says the story might not be over.

“I think it would be a pretty big thing to take to your grave, don’t you think?”, said the author.
