RESTON, Va. – Neighbors say a Virginia teenager charged in the fatal shooting of his girlfriend’s parents say the youth cut with a swastika about 40 feet (12 meters), on the other side in the grass of a community field.
Penny Potter tells The Washington Post that after the incident two months ago, residents of Reston have spoken with the youth of the parents instead of going to the police.
The 17-year-old is charged with two murders in the death Friday of 48-year-old Scott Fricker and his wife, 43-year-old Buckley Kuhn-Fricker. The youth, who located the gun on himself, is in the hospital in critical condition.
Family and friends say that the couple found a Twitter account that they are supposed to be linked to the youth. Friends say that the account retweeted posts praising Hitler and making derogatory remarks about Jews.
