A reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the murders of two students at Virginia Tech has reached $50,000.

Virginia Tech put up $10,000 and a Lynchburg cardiologist raised $40,000. Dr. Chad Hoyt says his goal is to raise the total reward to $100,000, an amount that he believes will prompt someone to talk.

A passer-by found the bodies of 19-year-old David Lee Metzler and 18-year-old Heidi Lynn Childs on Aug. 27 at Caldwell Fields in the Jefferson National Forest. The site is a day use and campground area about 15 miles from the Blacksburg campus. Police say the students apparently were shot.
