A Virginian man has recently killed his family and then committed suicide over paranoia that President Obama would be re-elected this upcoming election.

According to the Washington Post, Albert Peterson, 57, killed his wife and his two sons, 16 and 13, right before killing himself  because of his fear. They were all found dead in their Herndon, Va. home on Tuesday.

The site reports:

Relatives and friends mourned the family and struggled to come to terms with what had happened. Neighbors, who said they hadn’t noticed anything out of the ordinary in recent weeks, said that the four often sat on their porch and grilled on a barbecue and that the sons played soccer in the front yard.

A neighbor of the family said of Albert:

“He was worried about everything. He felt the economy was going in the wrong direction. He was worried about politics. He couldn’t shake things.”

Mourners gathered and sang “Amazing Grace” at a candlelight vigil at Floris United Methodist Church.

Reverend Rom Berlin said in a speech:

“Our community feels a real sense of loss at this time. This is a family that people cared about.”
