On Saturday, a memorial service will be held for Scott Fricker, 48, and Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, 43, the Reston couple who were shot and killed in their own home last week.

The service will begin at 10 a.m. at Herndon’s Trinity Presbyterian Church.

The couple was shot in their home on Friday, Dec. 22. Police believe a 17-year-old Lorton boy, whose identity has not been released, shot the couple and turned the gun on himself. He remains in the hospital with life threatening injuries.

One family member believes the teenage boyfriend of the couple’s daughter killed them after they learned of his Nazi views and encouraged their daughter to break up with him. The shooting took place on the 2600 block of Black Fir Court.

Fricker had a Ph.D from the University of Maryland and worked for the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Kuhn-Fricker specialized in estate planning and elder law.

Police are investigating the suspect’s alleged Neo-Nazi connections.

Neighbors in a Lorton community discovered a 40-feet wide swastika that was moved into the grass of a community field two months ago. Tire marks from a mower ran up to the home of a troubled teen, according to neighbors.

After a protracted discussion, residents opted to talk to the teen’s family directly about the incident two months ago. Now, after reports that the 17-year-old allegedly shot and killed the parents of his 16-year-old girlfriend in their Reston home make nationwide headlines, some neighbors regret not filing a report with local police.

The incident, reported by The Washington Post, is part of a narrative surfacing as more details about the Reston murder on Friday become known.

According to the Post, Scott Fricker, 48, and Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, 43, forbade their daughter from seeing the teen after discovering a Twitter account they thought was linked to the teen included tweets praising Hitler, calling for white revolution and an image of a man hanging from a noose.

Janet Kuhn, Buckley Kuhn-Fricker’s mother, told FOX 5  that the family believes the parents attempts to break up the daughter and her boyfriend led him to commit the crime in their home on the 2600 block of Black Fir Court. Police are investigating the boy’s alleged Neo-Nazi connection.

The teen, whose identity has not been revealed by police, has been charged with two counts of murder. He remains in critical condition. Four other family members who were home at the time of the shooting were not hurt.
