This needs a better look from the powers that be. Every aspect of this story smells rotten. (Isn't Ozcan a Turkish surname?)

Ozcan then allegedly turned the vehicle around and struck Ascencio a second time before leaving the scene. Police say Ozcan and Ascencio had no prior relationship.Driver Charged With Intentionally Striking, Killing 75-Year-Old Woman Is From Reston, by Dave Emke, Reston Now, April 17, 2017James Fulford writes: Yes, Kenan Ozcan is a Turkish name, and while he was apparently educated in the US, saying he's "From Reston" is another kind of #FakeNews, but I don't think this is actually a case of "Vehicular Jihad" of the kind we saw in Nice, Germany, and, earlier in Chapel Hill and San Francisco. I think he was an immigrant who's a criminal and a madman—there are lot of them, and they're not all Muslims by any means.
