People who live near the spot where Tech students David Metzler and Heidi Childs were killed are urging investigators to provide more details about the mystery minivan they're seeking.

News7 reported Tuesday investigators are looking for the driver of a grey or silver minivan that was in the area the night of the murders.

Metzler and Childs were shot to death August 26 and found the next morning along Craig Creek Road in Montgomery County.

Folks who live along the road say the unsolved murders are unnerving.

"We double check the windows and doors all the time and pull the curtains shut at night where I used to not and when he's not home I usually don't even check the mail," says resident Cath Sikkenga.
