McDonnell statement on U-Va. slaying
Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell released the following statement Thursday regarding the slaying of University of Virginia student Yeardley Love, Post reporter Rosalind Helderman reports on the Virginia Politics blog:
"The Governor's thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Yeardley Love, and the entire University of Virginia community as they struggle with this horrible tragedy.
"Yeardley Love was a young woman of terrific talent and promise; her innocent young life was taken far too soon. While there are no words that can properly convey the sadness and pain that so many are going through, it is heartening to witness the positive way in which the student body of U-Va. has come together to remember Yeardley Love, mourn her passing and help each other through this difficult time.
"We are reaching out today to President Casteen to arrange a personal meeting with the Governor. The Governor wants to study and fully consider every possible idea that could help prevent such a senseless crime from taking place in the future. He looks forward to hearing the President's insights and thoughts on the issue."
