Blacksburg Police are confirming the identity of the victim as 21 year old Samanata Shrestha after receiving confirmation from the Medical Examiner’s Office and following notification of the family.
The investigation began as a welfare check on an adult, and then evolved into a Missing Persons case, and quickly became a homicide investigation. Early on in the investigation, two suspects were developed, Ewing and Brown, who were subsequently arrested and charged in relation to the homicide.
The victim’s vehicle, a black 2004 Mercedes C320, was determined to be connected to the homicide investigation. The public was asked for assistance in locating the vehicle and a citizen’s tip led Blacksburg Police in locating the vehicle in Montgomery County.
