A Lorton teen who has been charged with the Dec. 22 murder of a couple in Reston may have acted in response to their efforts to get their daughter to break up with him over his alleged white supremacist beliefs, according to a Washington Post report.

Police say the teenager, who has not been publicly identified due to his age, shot Scott Fricker and Buckley Kuhn-Fricker after they found him in their teenage daughter’s bedroom early that morning.

Fairfax County police place the time of the incident around 5 a.m. and its location in the 2600 block of Black Fir Court in Reston.

Fricker, 48, and Kuhn-Fricker, 43, were both pronounced dead at the scene, and the teenager was taken to the hospital for a self-inflicted wound. He was still under police guard at the hospital, his condition life-threatening, as of the Fairfax County Police Department’s (FCPD) last update on Dec. 23.

FCPD homicide detectives obtained petitions charging the 17-year-old Lorton resident with two counts of murder after determining that he had entered the couple’s home and shot them and himself after they confronted him.

Four other family members were in the house at the time of the shooting but were not injured.

According to The Washington Post, Kuhn-Fricker, owner of Buckley’s for Seniors, an elder-care facility in Reston, urged her daughter to stop dating the teen after finding derogatory and disturbing tweets that she believed to be his.

Kuhn-Fricker sent an email to the principal of the Fairfax County private school that her daughter and the boyfriend attend with a warning about the offending tweets, which included anti-Semitic comments and praises of Adolf Hitler.

The Post got access to the email through a friend of Kuhn-Fricker but could not confirm independently that the Twitter account belonged to the teen.

According to comments to the Post by Janet Kuhn, Kuhn-Fricker’s mother, a family intervention staged on Dec. 20 convinced her granddaughter to end her relationship with the teen.

Kuhn-Fricker allegedly texted a friend the following night saying that she had sent a message to the boyfriend’s mother with claims that he was “sneaking into our house at night …and is an outspoken Neo Nazi.”

The FCPD’s investigation into the double homicide is ongoing, and the petitions have not yet been served, as detectives are waiting to see when his medical condition improves.
