Crime Roundup: Hearing for Teen Charged with Double Murder Closed to Public

A Fairfax County juvenile court judge blocked the public from a hearing of a 17-year-old Lorton boy charged with killing a Reston couple.

According to the Washington Post, a Fairfax County juvenile court judge barred the public from a hearing earlier this week because it featured “sensitive” information about the suspect, who is charged with killing Scott Fricker, 48, and his wife, Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, 43, in their home before Christmas last year.

In a separate incident, Lexi Palma, 19, of Reston, and a juvenile were arrested on Monday at around 3:43 a.m. on charges of driving under the influence, grand larceny and possession of alcohol under 21, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Palma after receiving a report about a woman stealing e-cigarettes from a convenience store on the 25000 block of Poland Road. Palma and her underage passenger were arrested after a traffic stop, according to the report.

She was released from the Loudoun County Adult Center Center on a secured bond. The juvenile female was also released and charges are pending.

The Fairfax County Police Department also reported the following incidents:


12300 block of Brown Fox Way, gun from vehicle

1800 block of Cameron Glen Drive, purses from vehicle

2500 block of Farmcrest Drive, purse from vehicle

11800 block of Sunrise Valley Drive, merchandise from business

7600 block of Walker Road, purse from vehicle

Fox Mill Road/Reston Parkway, tools from vehicle


None reported

Anyone with information about any of the crimes reported by FCPD should call 703-691-2131 or 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), or text “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES(274637).
