Virginia Tech duo arraigned in teen's death


The deceased in question, the 13 year old girl got a liver transplant and apparently, if one reads the story, dealt with bullying at school. Being bullied is not a rarity but as of now, we do not many details as to why these two college students are suspects in what happened to Nicole Madison Lovell.

What is additionally bizarre about this case, is apparently, the police were able to get tips from social media! So, does this mean the carelessness of the suspects got them caught?

The article calls the male suspect an accomplished athlete at the college but does not seem to elaborate. Perhaps all that means is that he’s on the swim team or something.

Virginia Tech duo arraigned in teen’s death
*Teens accused of killing 13-year-old, disposing of her body *

(CNN) -

It’s a story that seems to defy sense: A middle-schooler disappears. A student and accomplished athlete from the big-time college that dominates the victim’s town is accused of killing her. Then, another student at the school is accused of helping the murder suspect dispose of the teen’s body.

Though little is known, publicly at least, about how or why 13-year-old Nicole Madison Lovell died, the teenage Virginia Tech student accused of killing her and the one accused of helping dispose of the girl’s body have appeared in court.

David E. Eisenhauer, 18, of Columbia, Maryland, and Natalie M. Keepers, 19, of Laurel, Maryland, were arraigned Monday in connection with the death of Lovell, whose body was found Saturday in North Carolina. Both suspects will be held without bail pending a March 28 preliminary hearing, according to the Montgomery County, Virginia, court clerk’s office.

Their appearance Monday was in Montgomery County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. Such courts often are the first to hear criminal cases involving juvenile victims, according to court officials.

They are being held in the Montgomery County jail.

Police said they arrested Eisenhauer based on tips and leads obtained from social media, and they say he and Lovell knew each other. But they haven’t elaborated on that relationship or how it allegedly turned to murder.

Lovell’s mother, Tammy Weeks, told The Washington Post her daughter had survived a liver transplant, MRSA and lymphoma when she was 5.

“God got her through all that, and she fought through all that, and he took her life,” she said.

West Virginia does not have the death penalty.
