Neighborhood resident Penny Potter told The Washington Post that after the incident two months ago, neighbors spoke to the teen’s parents instead of going to the police to report the Nazi symbol in the grass.
The 17-year-old has been charged with two counts of murder in the deaths last Friday of 48-year-old Scott Fricker and his wife, 43-year-old Buckley Kuhn-Fricker.
The boy who unsuccessfully tried to commit suicide after turning the gun on himself, remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Family and friends say the couple found a Twitter account they believed to be linked to the youth. Friends say the account retweeted posts praising Hitler and making derogatory comments about Jews. The postings included support fot Nazi book burnings, calling for ‘white revolution,’ making derogatory comments about Jews and featuring an illustration of a man hanging from a noose beneath a slur for gay people.”
Fricker and his wife were shot dead on Friday at 5am after allegedly finding their daughter’s boyfriend in her bedroom. Mrs. Kuhn-Fricker had earlier reported him to the private school he and her daughter attend together, leading to the speculation that the reporting may have been the motive behind the murders
Neither of the shooter nor then couple’s daughter is being named because they are underage, but the killer teen was charged with two counts of murder on Saturday afternoon as he remains critically injured in the hospital.
Potter, the boy’s neighbor in Reston. told The Post that when local residents confronted his parents about the swastika in late October, the couple reassured them that they were going to seek treatment for their son, who was known in the community for being troubled.

Neighbors said that the discovery of the hate symbol in their family friendly town made them feel fearful that there was someone in their midst who was capable of ‘irrational behavior’.
The community lot was later re-mowed by neighbors to obscure the swastika.
According to friends of the Frickers who spoke to The Washington Post, on Sunday, Ms. Kuhn Fricker sent an email to the Fairfax County private school outlining her concerns.
She had found Twitter messages and posts on her daughter’s phone which she believed were written by her boyfriend.
In her email to school staff, she said the boy was a ‘monster’ who was ‘spreading hate’.
Ms. Kuhn Fricker, who ran an elderly care business, was determined to keep him away from their impressionable daughter who she feared he was indoctrinating, they said.
On Wednesday, she and her mother Janet staged an intervention with the girl to try again to persuade her to dump him. It was successful – after a long conversation about Jews and the Nazis, the girl agreed to break off the romance, they said.
It is not clear if the school made contact with the boy’s family or if it was the teen herself who told him of her decision.
Ms. Kuhn Fricker believed the issue was settled and told friends of her relief.
But on Friday at 5am, she and her husband went to their daughter’s room after hearing a noise and found him inside.

It remains unclear how he got the gun and who it belongs to.
Scott worked for the US Bureau of Labor Statistics while Buckley was an attorney and author who specialized in elder care and end-of-life issues.
She started a company to help the elderly in 2005 called Buckley’s For Seniors, which she ran from home.
Her small team contacted out with seniors who maintained their independence but needed help getting to stores and doctors, and in accomplishing other chores
Four months ago, the Fricker family moved from a smaller home in Reston into the bigger one on Black Fir Court where the fatal tragedy occurred.
