Stacy Fawcett, known as TV's "Favorite Foodie" in Dallas, has died at age 45 in a murder-suicide at the hands of her own son, People magazine reports.
The Plano Police Department has confirmed that Fawcett and her 17-year-old son Josiah Utu were stabbed to death early Friday by Fawcett's 19-year-old son McCann Utu Jr.

Police say McCann called 911 to report he had committed murder. Officers responded to Fawcett's Plano, Texas, home, where she and Josiah were found dead and McCann was found with life-threatening, self-inflicted stab wounds. McCann later died in the hospital.
McCann had recently posted disturbing messages online, including one in which he stated, "I prob will be the next to die after calvin #timeflies".
Stacy's brother said that McCann had suffered a traumatic brain injury playing basketball a few years ago, and McCann's father, McCann Utu Sr., issued a statement that seems to blame his son's head injury for the tragedy:
“I’m in so much pain and need to grieve for my boys and Stacy right now. God will use my pain to help and save others that are going through mental illness and concussion."
