The murders of Virginia Tech students Heidi Childs and David Metzler remain unsolved, even as a special task force tackles the case everyday.

News7 went back to the place where the couple was killed and spoke with neighbors who remain patient through the investigation.

Some who live near where these killings happened are surprisingly NOT full of fear, rather they're waiting and praying for this nightmare to end.

Raymond Reed spent nearly an hour waiting on Craig Creek Road on his way home from the store.

But just a few miles from where the pavement ends is the spot where Heidi Childs and David Metzler were found shot to death nearly a month ago.

"They just block the road off so they can do their investigation at the crime scene. That's all they told us down there," says Reed.

That scene looks the same the day the couple was found, except for this white cross.

"Them people were just too yound to die. I guess the man upstairs wanted them with him," says Calvert Foley.

Calvert Foley lives just a half mile from here and put up the cross to show respect for the families.

"One of them was just 18 and 19. They was just starting out, you know?," says Foley.

He moved to this area to get away from city violence.

"You don't know what to do. You got to keep a gun with you or what, but you don't want to do that," says Foley.

And like many others, he has his theory about the killer.

"It's somebody that knows the area too well that this to happen like this and get away with it," says Foley.

His prayer now? for an arrest

"They will get their punishment. Two times. By the man and by the man upstairs," says Foley.

Anyone with information on the case, should call the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department.
