Police seek community help in solving double-homicide

MONTGOMERY COUNTY – Police are turning to the community in hopes of obtaining information that will help them solve last week’s murder of two Virginia Tech students.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office issued an appeal to the public Monday for anyone who was in the area of Caldwell Fields or the Jefferson National Forest Shooting Range on Craig Creek Road between 8 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 26 and 8 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 27 to call 540-382-2951.
“We would like to speak with anyone who was in or around these areas during this time-frame regardless of whether they believe they have information that may be helpful,” Lt. Brian Wright states in a press release. “It is possible that they may unknowingly have information that could assist in the double homicide investigation being worked by our office.”
A man walking a dog discovered the bodies of 19-year-old David Lee Metzler of Lynchburg and 18-year-old Heidi Lynn Childs of Forest just after 8 a.m. last Thursday. Metzler’s body was found inside his car and Childs’ body was lying outside the car. Both had been shot and were dead when police arrived on the scene.
Separate funerals for the students were held Monday afternoon at Heritage Baptist Church in Lynchburg.
According to Virginia Tech President Charles W. Steger, Metzler was a sophomore in industrial and systems engineering and Childs was a sophomore in biochemistry. Both lived off campus.
