Virginia defendant claims "The Matrix" made him do it

A young man who killed his parents with a shotgun in Oakton is claiming mental illness, centered on his obsession with the movie "The Matrix," according to this report, which notes that the defendant "wore a trench coat like the one worn by actor Keanu Reeves in the movie, possessed the same entire outfit worn by Reeves, had a giant life-size poster of 'The Matrix' on his bedroom wall, and had the same type of weapons used in the film, including a shotgun similar to the one depicted in the movie."
