Two Students Found Dead In National Forest

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Authorities in Montgomery County are
investigating the slayings of two Virginia Tech students found in
the Jefferson National Forest.

Montgomery Sheriff's Lt. Brian Wright says 19-year-old David Lee
Metzler of Lynchburg and 18-year-old Heidi Lynn Childs of Forest
were found by a passerby around 8 a.m. Thursday morning at the
Caldwell Fields campgrounds. Both appear to have been shot, but
Wright wouldn't say how many times or where.

Wright says Metzler's body was found inside a car and Childs was
found outside. Both were taken to the medical examiner's office in
Roanoke for autopsies.

The deaths are being considered a double homicide. A suspect has
not been identified.
