Pond Search Completed In Alexandria Murder Investigation

The search of a pond in Fairfax County in relation to three high-profile unsolved murders in Alexandria is over. Police officials say the FBI helped them with the search for evidence, but they won't say what they found, if anything.

The pond is located near a home belonging to Charles Severance's parents. Police say they want to talk to Severance in relation to the murders, although they have not named him as a suspect.

Severance is being held in West Virginia on an unrelated gun charge out of Loudoun County, and Virginia is pushing to have him extradited. An attorney representing the 53-year-old man says the arrest was a "sham."

Severance was a fringe candidate in three elections in Alexandria, where people remember him as an eccentric who wore all black to candidate forums with sunglasses and gloves. His extradition hearing is set for April 23.
