Plea for help in slayings investigation

A task force investigating the slayings of two Virginia Tech students in the Jefferson National Forest is asking the public for help.

Investigators said Monday during a news conference that they have followed more than 1,100 leads in the case. They did not provide details about the investigation.

Eighteen-year-old Heidi Lynn Childs and 19-year-old David Lee Metzler were shot to death on the evening of Aug. 26, 2009, at Caldwell Fields, a day use and campground area about 15 miles from the Blacksburg campus. Their bodies were found the next morning.

A $70,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
