Metzler/Childs Murders Remain Unsolved


Reporter: Parker Slaybaugh

Lynchburg, VA - Sunday marks three years since the murders of Heidi Lynn Childs and David Lee Metzler.

The bodies of 18-year-old Childs and 19-year-old Metzler were found at Caldwell Fields in Montgomery County.

Montgomery County Sheriff, Tommy Whitt, says they are still actively working this case.

While he wouldn't release much else, he did say earlier this month he brought the lead investigator in this case out of retirement to focus on finding the killer.

As you may remember, in 2009 investigators found Metzler's body slumped over in a car. They found his girlfriend, Heidi Childs, on the ground a few feet in front of the vehicle.

No arrests have been made in connection with the murders.

However, there is a $70,000 reward in the case.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office at (540)382-2951.
