A Maryland man allegedly killed his pharmacist brother and sister-in-law because they were “killing people with Covid shots”.
Howard County Police said 46-year-old Jeffrey Allen Burnham shot and killed his 58-year-old brother Brian Robinett and sister-in-law Kelly Sue Robinett (57) at their Ellicott City home last week.
According to arrest documents, Mr Burnham told another unidentified man that his brother was “killing people with Covid bullets.”
The accused had reportedly warned his mother before the attack that he wanted to confront his brother as he had helped in getting the vaccines.
Mr Burnham told his mother he believed the government was poisoning people with vaccines and repeatedly said that “Bryan knows something”, the documents said.
The man allegedly stabbed his mother’s childhood friend, 83-year-old Rebecca Reynolds, to death in Allegheny County, before killing her next of kin. She was found dead inside her house, with a deep cut in her neck and a pillow on her face.
Mr Burnham allegedly stole Reynolds’ car and drove it for two hours to get to Robinette’s home.
Police investigating Reynolds’ murder found his stolen car on Kerger Road and learned that Mr. Burnham’s brother lived nearby. When police went to the pharmacist’s house to inquire, they found Mr. Burnham’s brother and his wife dead.
Mr Burnham’s mother Evelyn reportedly expressed concern about her son’s mental health. Arrest documents filed in Reynolds’ death say he called the Cumberland police two days in a row because of his son’s “mental stability” after making a statement about the FBI.
She reportedly informed the police that her son lives with her and maintains security arrangements in the bedroom of their house. Ms Burnham, concerned about her son’s “Becky’s car”, called the police again on 30 September, referring to Ms Reynolds.
Police then sent out an alert to locate the “armed and dangerous” person and offered a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the suspect.
The absconding accused was located on a roadside in Davis on October 1 with a red Corvette that he had stolen from his brother’s house.
He was arrested a day after West Virginia State Police allegedly murdered his brother and sister-in-law.
Mr Burnham has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder, as well as the use of a handgun in the commission of a crime.
