A White teen is accused of killing his entire family, all because he believed they were "racist" and against him dating an African American girl.
17-year-old Levi Norwood allegedly shot and killed his mother and 6-year-old brother last year, inside their Virginia home. Afterward the teen also allegedly shot his father, who survived his injuries.
That was until yesterday. Levi's dad Joshua Norwood was found dead inside the family's home. Police believe he committed suicide.
The story is a telling tale of how racism and hatred can destroy a family.
According to online reports, Levi was dating a Black girl, and his parents disapproved of him dating interracially.
Here's how one local newspaper put it:
"Both were against his dating a black girl, but his father was “adamant” about the issue. “He didn’t want Leviathan having anything to do with her.”
Levi lived with his mom and dad in the suburbs of Virginia. They were a well off family, and Levi had a 6-year-old younger brother.
Levi had many arguments with his parents about his relationship, and the teen believed his parents were "racist." Last year, Levi snapped - he grabbed the gun and killed his mom and his six year old brother.
When his dad came home, Levi was waiting and ready to murder him too. When his father opened the door, Levi allegedly shoots at his father - but the bullet only grazed his father's head.
As MTO reported, the dad was found dead yesterday of an apparent suicide.
