Remains could be related to Va. killings

By Washington Post Editors

Crews may have found remains in York County Saturday and the FBI is investigating the possibility that they may be related to the unsolved Colonial Parkway killings, WAVY in Hampton Roads is reporting.

According to the station's report:

Crews spent the day searching for the remains of Christopher Newport University students Cassandra Hailey and Keith Call and cadaver dogs hit on something that could be human remains.

As many as eight people were slain in southeastern Virginia in the late 1980s in cases thought to be linked to a single killer or a team of them. The slayings -- known as the Colonial Parkway murders -- have perplexed detectives for years.

Despite every roadblock presented by the National Park Service, a all-volunteer, family-run search using cadaver dogs was able to find possible human remains in the Colonial Parkway Murders in less than 4 hours.

The Colonial Parkway area was not properly searched for Keith Call and Cassandra Hailey. This family run search proves that. If these remains are not those of Keith Call and Cassandra Hailey, then more searches need to be conducted now.

The National Park Service needs to begin cooperating with the Colonial Parkway Murders families, and not presenting one roadblock after another.

I agree with the comment posted by family member Bill Thomas.

These family members need to be able to not only participate but to conduct their own searches. They are highly motivated, energized and likely to be that much more thorough because it's a loved one they have lost.
