Authorities say Scott Fricker, 48, and Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, 43, were fatally shot in their Virginia home, December 22, 2017. On Wednesday (Dec. 20), the Frickers chose to intervene by taking their daughter to the home of a friend in Washington D.C. There they convinced her that it would be in her best interest to sever ties with the young man and she agreed.
Kuhn Fricker believed the issue was settled and told friends of her relief. "He is spreading hate", Kuhn-Fricker wrote in an email to the principal obtained by The Post. He shot the couple and himself after being confronted by them.
Early Friday morning the couple checked on their daughter after hearing noises and found the boyfriend in her room.
Kuhn said the late parents had told her about an image the boy allegedly shared on a social media account that depicted "a picture of a skeletal face, blood dripping".
"We can't allow her to see someone associated with Nazis", a friend who spoke on the condition of anonymity recalled Kuhn-Fricker saying.
A neo-Nazi teenager allegedly shot dead his girlfriend's parents after they told her to end the relationship.
They found the boy in their daughter's bedroom and Scott Fricker yelled at him to get out and never return again.
Authorities have not indicated whether they believe he meant to shoot the teenage girl, himself, or her parents.
Buckley Kuhn-Fricker had a law practice and specialized in estate planning and elder law, according to her website.
A post on the boy's Facebook page just before the murders included a quote from Irish philosopher and politican Edmund Burke: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing".
Police said the shooter was known to the family and there is no public threat. The teen shot and killed the parents before inflicting a wound on himself, but none of the other four family members in the house were injured.
He is being charged with two counts of murder.
Friends and family wondered if the resurgence of hate groups in the country, represented by events like the deadly protest in Charlottesville over the summer, have emboldened those with racially divisive ideas.
