Parents talk about children's deaths

MONTGOMERY, VA (WWBT) – An update is expected Monday on the murder investigation of two Virginia Tech students killed nearly a year ago.

19-year-old David Metzler and 18-year-old Heidi Childs were found shot to death last August near the Caldwell Fields camping area in Montgomery County.

Now, both families are speaking out. They believe somebody knows something out there that can help solve this case.

"The point blank brutality was just so senseless and I don't think this individual is going to be stable enough not to do this again," said Dr. Keith Metzler, David Metzler's father.

"I wake up sometimes and it feels like it was just yesterday," said Don Childs, Heidi Childs' father. "I look at her picture and I say is this still real?"

There is a $70,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case.
