Skinhead Brothers Accused Of Killings

Compiled From Wire Services

Two buzz-cut brothers, one with “Sieg Heil!” tattooed on his forehead, are suspected of beating and stabbing their parents and brother to death then fleeing in the family car, police said Tuesday.

Asked about a motive, prosecutor Robert Steinberg said: “Ill will, longterm.”

Fifteen-year-old David Freeman and his 17-year-old brother, Bryan, had clashed with their Jehovah’s Witness parents over their lifestyle, and they were angry that their parents had sold the boys’ car, police Chief Allen Stiles said.

The brothers collected Nazi paraphernalia, Steinberg said, and in one school picture, Bryan wears a swastika pin on the lapel of his black coat.

Neighbors said the boys always seemed to wear black coats and army boots.

One neighbor, Linda LaComare, recalled frequently seeing the brothers walking up and down in front of their house and smoking because their parents wouldn’t let them do it inside.
