The lead investigator in the 2009 abduction and murder of Morgan Harrington has written an open letter to Harrington's killer. Virginia State Police lieutenant Joe Rader retired earlier this year. According to a news release Rader is a self-described “father, husband and person of faith.” Harrington, who was from Roanoke, was a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student. She was abducted from a “Metallica” concert in Charlottesville on Oct. 17, 2009. Her body was found in an Albemarle County field nearly three months later.

The ER is equipped to handle much more complicated, costly interventions.” There are other reasons visiting an emergency room for a relatively minor situation may cost you significantly more than visiting your primary care physician or an urgent care facility.

It's Halloween, and that means it's Scaremare time. The annual event is put on by Liberty University.  This year is the 40th Anniversary. "Kids know our history," said Scaremare director, Steve Vandegriff.  "They know that they're going to have a good time and we're going to do our best to scare them.

Urban legends and ghost stories surround an old mansion in Southwest Virginia. From murder and war, to mental illness and slavery, the tales are so tall that the television series Ghost Hunters made the trip to Wythe County to investigate. It's not the house itself that brings people to Major Graham Mansion , but what or who might be inside. "We've all been so fascinated with the house and the stories that we wanted to come in and investigate," said Lesley Catron, a Wythe County native.

Here are the top answers along with a few more extras you suggested. BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY You can tell the leaf-peepers from the rest of those traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway.

October is known for its changing leaves, cool days, chilly nights and even fog and cold rain. One thing that probably doesn't come to mind when you think of October is snow. While it's rare, October snows aren't unheard of. ROANOKE SNOW Just last year, several hometowns, including Roanoke, Lynchburg and Blacksburg recorded flurries on October 28 and 29th. Flurries count as a trace. If you're looking for something more than a few flying flurries, you'd have to go back to October 10th 1979, where .30" of snow fell in Roanoke.
