Suspect Arrested in Baltimore for Double Homicide
West Springfield Police District – A 33-year-old man is in custody and awaiting extradition at the Baltimore Central Booking Intake Facility for the murder of Susan Lister, 67, and Amber Currie, 41, both of Burke. Bradley Lister, 33, is facing two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of use of a weapon in the commission of a felony.
Detectives from our Major Crimes Bureau determined Bradley Lister killed his mother and sister in the home where they all resided in the 6100 block of Eagle Landing Road. Officers discovered the victims on the morning of August 20 following a request for a welfare check. Detectives immediately sought Bradley Lister for questioning, but he could not be found or contacted.
Bradley Lister was located last night by the U.S. Marshals Service at a hospital in Baltimore and was taken into custody for charges unrelated to the homicides. Detectives responded to the Baltimore City Police Department Headquarters to interview Lister and determined he shot both victims on August 17.
Following the murder, Lister fled to Baltimore City. Detectives believe Lister removed multiple firearms from the home. Lister will remain in custody at the Baltimore Central Booking Intake Facility until he is extradited back to Fairfax County.
Detectives from our Organized Crime and Intelligence Bureau are coordinating with the Baltimore City Police Department and our federal partners for follow-up investigation related to the firearms.
