    Police in Fairfax County, Virginia are investigating a new lead in an unsolved March 2016 homicide case in Lorton, VA
    Johan De Leede (83), a retired World Bank economist, was shot inside his home shortly after 1 a.m. on Friday, 03-11-2016. Police responded to the River Drive home, situated on the Potomac River waterfront in the Hallowing Point/Mason Neck area of Fairfax County in Lorton, Virginia. There they found him unresponsive, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. He was transported to a local hospital where he later died of his injuries.

    A neighbor of Mr. Leede has recently provided a new lead to the Fairfax County Police Department, and they are now asking the public's help in their investigation. .

    Here are some articles:

    Thanks, snowleopard, that's a good article. A few new details are reported here that I had not seen in previous articles, such as:

    (1) The dark pickup truck that was seen quickly leaving the area at the time of the shooting had no lights on (this was at 1 a.m.);

    (2) a cell tower close to the area is being checked to see what numbers pinged on it when the victim was shot; and

    (3) there were visiting relatives from his wife's side of the family who were also asleep in the house when the shooting occurred.

    Just bumping this thread as some in social media are wondering if there is a connection between the young man who killed his girlfriend's parents, Buckley and Scott Fricker. While the Fricker's were killed at their home in Reston, VA, the 17 yo Neo-Nazi boyfriend, who is still hospitalized, lives in Lorton, VA, not far from where Mr. De Leeder was murdered.

    Apparently, the young man from Lorton owned a gun and was known to wander around late at night. He had broken into his girlfriend's house a few times prior to killing her parents.

    I was JUST coming here to report the same thing, I sure hope this ends up panning out and that this cold case is solved, for the benefit of Mr. de Leede's family, although, the fact that that a teenager would allegedly kill an elderly man with no seeming motive other than the fact that he was a neighbor, is utterly terrifying!!!

    It is terrifying. He would have been about 15(?) at the time of this killing? If you follow social media, the Kuhn - Fricker girl's boyfriend lived just a short distance from Mr. de Leede's home, about a mile or so. It was noted by neighbors that a dark colored large pick up truck was seen speeding from the neighborhood shortly after Mr. de Leede's shooting. It would be interesting to know what vehicle the young man had at his disposal back then. He was old enough to have a learner's permit. I'm not 100% on board with this theory, but it needs to be investigated.

    I am bumping this post since this took place close to where I live and is a very interesting case.

    I would like to throw my hate into the ring and offer a speculation perhaps. While the idea of a thrill-kill teenager is certainly within the realm of possibilities, one would have to imagine there would be several targets of opportunity in several neighborhoods available to the suspect. Why would he single out a man in a house full of potential witnesses in a quiet neighborhood?

    Obviously I'm sure Fairfax detectives are working their asses off. First place to start would obviously be who the victim was and what his history involved. He was a World Bank Economist, wealthy, and had foreign connections. I'm not sounding the alarm of the international conspiracy theory, but the motives could be endless with those certain ties.

    The man was shot multiple times from behind in what would appear to be a targeted hit. We can assume it wasn't a burglar that was caught in the act because he was shot from behind.

    Wish I had more to go on and offer.
