ABC News, NBC News, CNN and The New York Times spent an entire week headlining the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery and playing up the racial angle but they’ve all ignored the shocking murder of an elderly white couple by 29-year-old Sheldon C. Francis — which many suspect may have been a racial “revenge” murder for Arbery.
An elderly couple who were visiting the grave of their son, who had suffered from Down’s Syndrome, were shot in cold blood by a man with a scoped rifle.
The Maryland couple, in their mid-eighties, were gunned down at a Bear, Delaware, graveyard in a merciless unprovoked attack.
The New York Post reports that the gunman, identified as Sheldon C. Francis, 29, from Middleton, was found dead by authorities following the shooting.
A black-clad Francis had gunned down the couple from Elkton on Friday morning, killing the woman later identified as Lidia Marino, 85, at the scene, while the husband later identified as Paul C. Marino, 86, died a day later in hospital.
The Red Elephants shared more details on the story over the weekend after getting a tip from a local source.
From The Red Elephants:
“He’s 29. And no connection (to the victims) at all,” [the source said.] He was wearing a black hoodie black pants, black mask, hood up, black gloves, black boots.”
“I know 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.”
