Standout Soccer Player Among 2 Dead In Drug-Related Robbery: Fairfax County PD
By Cecilia Levine,
A 17-year-old has been arrested in connection with a drug-related robbery gone bad, which left two men dead and two juveniles injured, police in Fairfax County said.
Jonas Skinner, 20, of Ashburn, was found dead in the laundry room of an apartment building on the 2200 block of Pimmit Run Lane in Falls Church around 3:35 p.m. on May 29, Fairfax County police said. He suffered a gunshot wound to the upper body and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Then, Braden Deahl, 18, who was a varsity soccer player for Washington-Liberty High School, was found with a stab wound in the parking lot, as were two other juvenile victims. Deahl was pronounced dead at the hospital while the others suffered non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said.
During a search of the area, K9 officers located a significant amount of marijuana nearby believed to be connected to the homicides. Police believe all victims and suspects knew each other.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death in the coming days.
