The murders in residential Alexandria don't appear to have any motives to link them.

Police officials are meeting with concerned neighbors tonight to address lingering concerns over three unsolved murders.

Senior officials from Alexandria Police Department will be addressing concerns from neighborhood residents tonight during a meeting of the North Ridge Citizens Association. Many neighbors in the quiet suburban stretch have been rattled by the last week's murder of Ruthanne Lodato, who was shot when she answered the door. The shooting of Lodato, a beloved piano teacher, is similar to a pair of unsolved murders involving high-profile residents.

Last year, transportation planner Ron Kirby was found shot to death in his home not a mile away from where Ladato lived. And a decade ago, Nancy Dunning, who was married to the then-sheriff Jim Dunning was also found dead.

Police say it's too early to know whether these crimes are related, but are asking residents to be cautious. Detectives are canvassing Ladato's neighborhood today and the FBI is helping with the investigation.

The meeting is scheduled to take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Sanctuary of Beverley Hills United Methodist Church.
