Easton Brueger

Easton Curtiss Brueger
August 11, 2004 - December 30, 2012
Easton was born on August 11, 2004 to Justin Brueger and Pamela Rogers. He was a third grade student. He liked playing with his cousins, riding four-wheelers, fishing, doing anything outside, playing video games, playing with Legos, and playing with Nerf guns. He also liked taking photographs of birds and reading history books. One of his best friends was his dog, Buddy, whom he found and rescued.

Easton passed away due to an accidental gunshot wound. He had been with his father, Justin, at the time. Justin was cleaning his gun when it accidentally went off, shooting Justin in his stomach. Justin was taken to the hospital where he later passed away due to the injury. Police charged Justin for Easton's death, saying that he put Easton at "unreasonable risk of harm" by pointing the gun in his direction while cleaning it.

Justin told the court, "I just want to say I'm very sorry to my son." He was placed on a $10,000 bond and all guns were ordered to be removed from his home. He was also ordered to stay away from Easton's mother and her family.
