John R. Tusson was found dead in his home, in the Belle Chasse section of New Orleans, La., June 30, 1995. He was 74. He had been stabbed to death. To our knowledge no suspect has ever been named. His home had been the object of two previous episodes attributed to possible vandalism. He earned a master's in chemical engineering at Princeton. He was an inventor, a computer program specialist who worked on design of the Prodigal on-line system, an entrepreneur in several personal businesses, and a former candidate for the presidency of Plaquemin Parish, La. He is survived by three offspring. His wife predeceased him. To them and their families we express profound sadness in his tragic death.
