Must People Die For Me to Get Hits?

Last week I noted a spike in my hits and I saw an abnormal amount of views to one of my Caldwell Fields posts. Upon investigation, I discovered the reason. It was not something to celebrate.

2 Virginia Tech Students Found Murdered in Forest

The bodies of David Lee Metzler, 19, of Lynchburg and Heidi Lynn Childs, 18, of Forest were discovered early Thursday by a passerby at Jefferson National Forest, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Lt. Brian Wright said. Both had been shot.

Wright said Metzler’s body was found inside a car in the parking area of the Caldwell Fields campground, and Childs was found outside the car. The campground is about 15 miles from Virginia Tech’s campus in Blacksburg.

Caldwell Fields is such a beautiful place. I know a couple who got married there. That’s a event fitting of the locale. Caldwell Fields should be used for new beginnings. Not abrupt and unwarranted endings.

My heartfelt sentiments to the families.
