An elderly couple was shot and killed while visiting their son’s grave at a cemetery in Delaware on May 9. Here is a news report from the next day:
A conservative website reports that the suspect may have ambushed the couple from a wooded area near the cemetery based on interviews with sources connected to the case:
. . .dressed in all black with a black face mask, carrying a rifle with a scope. The suspect was later seen in a wooded area before engaging in a shootout with police officers. . . the guy had a lot of ammo. It seems as if he set himself up in the ditches with ammo because the police were saying that their drone could see him but they couldn’t get eyes on him. He had to have planned this for a while because most people don’t know those woods like that.
A website that provides news to the African-American community suggests that police are looking into a possible racial motivation for the attack:
. . . police are investigating whether the shooting was done in “retaliation” for the apparent racist killing of Georgia’s Ahmaud Arbery . . .Social media posts from Sheldon suggest that he was particularly troubled by the killing of Ahmaud Arbery.
From what I have seen, most of the national media have spent little effort researching the details about this story although a Fox commentator recently lamented the lack of interest from the media:
What is going on here?
Is Fox News afraid to report the details about the story while their commentators lament the lack of media interest?
Do they have evidence that contradicts reports such as those from theredelephants.com?
Or are they preparing to release information that shows that the elderly couple was really hunted down in a racially motivated attack?
