    Both the victims and the alleged killers in the murder of three people in California were reportedly members of their local ‘furry’ community.

    Last weekend, police were called to the scene by a 6-year-old girl after her parents — Jennifer Yost, 39,and Christopher Yost, 34 — as well as friend Arthur Boucher, 28, had been shot dead at the Yost’s home in Fullerton, California.

    Two men, Frank Felix and Joshua Acosta, have been charged with the murders.

    However, it has now emerged that both the alleged killers and their victims were members of a local “furry” community, also known as Furry fandom, which involves dressing up as anthropomorphic animals as a hobby

    I feel really badly for the 6 year old child of the victims. I'd feel sorry for her if her parents weren't dead.

    Yeah,seems some media is blaming their hobby for it.

    I remember back when i was younger and i was forbid to have anything to do with dungeons and dragons or listen to heavy metal,because some murders and such were in some way connected to heavy metal and dungeons and dragons,regardless of other stuff like coming from a broken family,drugs or such.

    Absent actual data to the contrary, I'd go with furries having the "share" of angry and violent people that almost any other identifiable demographic group has. Bridge players probably have as many violent people as do furries.

    Bridge players scare the crap out of me. Stephen King could have replaced Pennywise with a bridge player in that sewer.

    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    Data i have found states that most have aspergers or autism.

    I was diagnosed with aspergers at a early age at Johns Hopkings and some other learning disabilities.

    i was also put in special ed and was in special olympics and such.

    I wonder what draws people with aspergers and autism to it.

    fact, evidence suggests that there is only one condition in which the prevalence may be higher in furries than in the general population: Asperger’s, or high-functioning autism.

    I have Aspergers as well and I was game tester for 3rd edition Dungeons & Dragons; you can find my name in the Players Guide.
