Police seek alleged Loudoun home invaders

By Caitlin Gibson

Two of the four people believed to be connected to a botched robbery in Sterling last Thursday remain at large and are thought to be in the area, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. Police are asking for the public's help to locate the pair, who have been charged in connection with last week's apparent home invasion that left one man dead and another seriously wounded.

Samuel Thomas Eaton, 27, one of the alleged home-invaders, is believed to be traveling in a dark gray 2004 Hyundai sedan with Virginia registration XFH 2671, police said. He is believed to be accompanied by Whitney Lasik, 24, who was charged as an accessory after the fact in the robbery. Investigators believe that Lasik drove one of the alleged robbers, who police did not identify, to Inova Loudoun Hospital, where he is currently recovering from his wounds.

Flush. That's the sound of Whitney Lasik's life gone down the drain.

That's presuming that she had a life to begin with. She's probably the product of a broken home with some sort of abuse growing up.

Whitney Lasik should turn herself in, cooperate with the Sheriffs office and tell all. She still has a real good chance to get through this without big penalties. She doesn't have a criminal record like Sammy Thug Eaton who's record reads like that of a career criminal. Sammy is screwed and if he wants to live through this he better just give up now. As a two time felon, well, let's just say he is a walking target.

I don't understand the appeal of spending years in prison. What's up with these lowlifes? Maybe it's better than working for a living like the rest of us slobs. I don't know.

We need to pay women to get abortions. Too many hoes popping out brats like a baby vending machine. This is what they grow up to be. They sure ain't gonna end up as Obama or Malcolm X.

They prey on society. Thugs must die. It's us versus them.

TaxiDriver, are you an actual taxi driver in real life, or do you have that moniker for another reason? (e.g. identification with the fictitious Travis Bickle character)

Also I'm curious if you've been a target of crime, based on some of your comments.
