Update: Police continue investigation into Virginia Tech students’ deaths. Still no suspects. Everybody be careful out there.
A double homocide of two Virginia Tech students Thursday morning.
The bodies were discovered about 8 a.m. by a man walking his dog. Metzler’s body was inside a car; Childs’ was outside, [Sheriff Tommy] Whitt said.
He did not say how many times or where on their bodies they appeared to have been shot. No weapons were found, he said.
Caldwell Fields is a popular weekend hangout spot for Tech students, authorities said. “We are going to step up our patrols in that area even though we think it was a random act of brutal violence,” Whitt said.
There are apparently no suspects at this time. Whoever did this is still wandering around free, and there’s no telling if he’s still in the area or not, or if he’ll do it again.
Maintaining condition yellow is highly recommended until this killer is found. So is carrying, if you can.
