That'a just awful. You kids are supposed to be safe there. Condolences to your client if it is her.

ok, the university is now confirming the toll is over 30 now.

The question is why they lifted the 1st lockdwn after the 7:15 shootings and preceeded to hold classes without knowing the whereabouts of the shooter???

oh,no.........maybe at some point you could do something like Annie did for her friend..........later on.

I lost my son, but even I can't imagine losing a child under those circumstances

I just found this on cnn, I had been holding out hope till now

"Emily Jane Hilscher, 19, a freshman majoring in animal and poultry sciences, was known around her hometown as an animal lover. "She worked at a veterinarian's office and cared about them her whole life," Rappahannock County Administrator John W. McCarthy, a family friend, told the AP. Hilscher, of Woodville, Virginia, was a freshman majoring in animal and poultry sciences. She lived on the same dorm floor as victim Ryan Clark, McCarthy said. A friend, Will Nachless, also 19, said Hilscher "was always very friendly. Before I even knew her, I thought she was very outgoing, friendly and helpful, and she was great in chemistry."
