Not many details on this story yet so all I’m going to say at this point is…. hmmmmmmm….

ROANOKE, Va., July 30 (UPI) — An aide to U.S. Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., was found shot to death beside his car on a Virginia highway, police said.

Fred Hutchins Jr., 26, of Roanoke, Va., was in charge of Webb’s office in the southwest part of the state. Investigators have not determined whether his death was suicide, the Roanoke Times reported Wednesday.

Hutchins got into politics working for Onzlee Ware, a member of the Virginia House of Delegates. Ware told WDBJ-TV, Roanoke, that Hutchins developed an interest in politics at an early age, describing their first meeting.

“At 13 years old, Fred had political cards, and it said Fred W. Hutchins Jr., Political Consultant … at 13,” says Ware. “So then he announced to me that one day he knew I was going to run for public office and when that day came he was going to be my campaign manager.”
