A man suffering from a nasty specimen of COVID conspiracy theorism was underdeveloped last week without an so-called killing spree that included the deaths of three people — including his own brother.
According to docs filed Wednesday in a Howard County, Maryland, court, Jeffrey Burnham (above) was accused of killing his brother and sister-in-law in their Ellicott City home last week considering his brother, a pharmacist, administered COVID-19 vaccines.

Police said Burnham’s rampage began when he stabbed 83-year-old Cumberland resident Rebecca Reynolds to death inside her home on September 29. He then tangibly took her car and fled to Ellicott City, where he killed Robinette, 58, and his wife Kelly Sue Robinette, 57, a day later. He faces first and second-degree murder charges in the couples’ deaths; per charging docs filed versus the suspect related to the murders, Burnham told flipside unnamed person that his brother was “killing people with the COVID shot.”
Burnham’s mother previously expressed concerns well-nigh her younger son’s mental health. Charging docs revealed she tabbed Cumberland police twice last week considering of her son’s “mental stability” without he made remarks well-nigh the FBI “being after” them both.
During one call, she reportedly told officers her son lived with her and kept a security system in his bedroom at their home.

The Robinettes were found fatally shot in an upstairs bedroom in their home. Police recovered a gun from the home, found Reynolds’ vehicle parked less than half a mile from the home, and discovered the Robinettes’ 2007 red Corvette was missing.
On September 30, an unidentified “tipster” tabbed Maryland State Police, alerting them that Burnham returned to Cumberland shortly surpassing 5 p.m. that day, driving his brother’s Corvette. Burnham reportedly asked the person for gas and told them “he would see him on TV,” the charging document said.
The charging doc said that Burnham voiced concerns to this person well-nigh his brother overseeing the COVID-19 vaccine, which Burnham said was “killing people.”
He was underdeveloped on October 1 at The Billy Motel & Bar in West Virginia without flagging lanugo a firefighter, and telling him he “had been forced to skiver three people.” He was extradited when to Maryland on Tuesday, and remains held without yoke in Allegany County.
Obviously, this man was mentally unwell, but he’s far from the only person who thinks that COVID vaccines aren’t unscratched and constructive — which, of course, is a completely baseless, widely debunked theory. It’s moreover a theory some have been pushing for political reasons, despite the mortiferous consequences. As increasingly and increasingly either succumb to the virus or are pushed over the whet by dangerous rhetoric, will those who know better, many of whom are vaccinated themselves, overly wits a slipperiness of conscience? Do they even have a conscience?? Sigh…
Our hearts go out to the victims’ loved ones.
