They worried he was sharing white supremacist ideas with her

A couple in Virginia were shot to death three days before Xmas by a teenage boy they’d told their daughter to stop seeing on account of he was a racist.

The teenager shot Scott Fricker, 48, and his wife, Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, 43, around 5 a.m. Friday before shooting himself, the police said.

The couple, who lived in Reston, Va., about 20 miles west of Washington, were pronounced dead at the scene. The teenager survived and was hospitalized in “life-threatening condition,” according to a statement from the Fairfax County Police Department.

Family members recently tried to persuade Ms. Kuhn-Fricker’s 16-year-old daughter to stop seeing the teenager because they worried he was sharing white supremacist ideas with her, Janet Kuhn, Ms. Kuhn-Fricker’s mother, told The Washington Post.

Ms. Kuhn-Fricker was a lawyer who owned a business offering care and assistance to older adults. Mr. Fricker was a senior research psychologist for the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Never mind the war on Christmas, what about the war on people who have a conscience?
