A San Francisco father mired in a custody battle with his ex-wife regarding their 9-year-old son – including whether to vaccinate him – killed the boy before taking his own life, according to police and court documents.
The bodies of Stephen O’Loughlin, 49, and his son, Pierce O’Loughlin, were found Wednesday by San Francisco cops in what investigators are probing as a murder-suicide, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
The bodies were found at O’Loughlin’s apartment one day after he agreed to begin vaccinations for his son amid a custody battle with his ex-wife and the boy’s mother, Lesley Hu — who sought sole legal guardianship of Pierce while claiming her former partner is an anti-vaxxer, court documents cited by the newspaper shows.
“[O’Loughlin’s] stance on vaccinations has taken on a cult-like tone,” Hu wrote in a September filing, adding that Stephen had videotaped Pierce’s breathing several times a day for ailments as minor as a stuffy nose.
Hu alleged O’Loughlin had refused to allow their son to be vaccinated since early childhood. More recently, Hu claimed O’Loughlin had gotten involved in a self-help group from 2012 through 2016 and spent thousands on sessions after becoming convinced that the “government was out to get us and was trying to mind-control us,” court documents show.
