Investigation of the killings –
Investigators have interviewed around 38 individuals who may have details about the murder.
They also checked three nearby dumpsters to find any evidence.
One store manager said that police are visiting them to ask whether they have sold a “rambo” style knife to someone. But later on, Aaron Snell clarified to the media that they weren’t only looking for Ka-bar knives. They were investigating the stores to see whether any fixed blade knife was recently sold.
But still, there are no suspects, and the weapon is also not found.
Not only this, but investigators on Friday also released a map and timeline of the victim’s movements. As per the map, all of them spent most of their night in pairs.
Police are speaking with the surviving roommates who lived with the victims but were found uninjured.
Snell said in an interview that these two surviving roommates could be potential victims and witnesses, and they even can be the key to this whole murder.
How did University react to the murders?
The university of virginia homicide announced a candlelight vigil on the 30th of November. They asked the students to help them light up the University again and hold a moment of silence in memory of all four students.
Many students went home because they were afraid. Others are leaving as fast as they can.
