WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va




BLACKSBURG - 11:00 p.m. Update: This Facebook picture of Samanata Shrestha is now the profile picture of Virginia Tech students wanting to show support for the young woman.

According to arrest warrants filed by Blacksburg Police Shrestha is the victim of a weekend homicide after she disappeared on Saturday.

While police have not released where the crime scene is, homeowners on a rural road in Blacksburg found a black Mercedes that police say is tied to  murder investigation. Neighbors tell WSLS they notified police Monday morning.

The car was found on the 600 block of High Meadow Road, just five minutes off of Route 460. No details of the condition of the car or what was found in the car have been released.

Neighbors were too shaken to speak about details.

Virginia tech student 22-year-old Jessica Ewing of Blacksburg is charged with murder .Virginia Tech graduate 23-year-old Keifer Brown of Blacksburg is charged with accessory after the fact.


They are being held without bond. Police have not said how the suspects knew the victim.

Shrestha was a member of Epsilon Sigma Alpha, a co-ed service based fraternity on Virginia Tech's campus.

Monday members reached out on social media posting a memorial.

In comments friends said that she was a” kind-hearted person” and that “words are truly insignificant in expressing their sadness of the loss of a fellow Hokie.”

They did not want to comment to the media---but say they are keeping her family in their thoughts and prayers.

WSLS will continue to keep you updated on the latest.



3:53 update: Search warrants obtained by WSLS 10 show Samanata Shrestha as the victim in this case. Police have not confirmed the identity of the victim at this time.

भर्जिनिर्या, २८ माघ- अमेरिकाकामा एक नेपाली विद्यार्थीको हत्या भएको छ । भर्जिनिर्या टेक विश्वविद्यालयमा अध्ययनरत समानता श्रेष्ठको गत शनिबार हत्या भएको हो । श्रेष्ठको हत्यामा संलग्न दुई जनालाई प्रहरीले पक्राउ गरी अनुसन्धान गरिरहेको छ ।  हत्या के कति कारणले भयो भन्ने अझै सम्म कुनै जानकारी नभएको त्यहाँ स्थित ल्याक्सवर्ग प्रहरीले जनाएको छ ।
प्रहरीले श्रेष्ठको हत्याको अभियोगमा भर्जिनिया टेकका स्नात्तक तहका वरिष्ठ दुई विद्यार्थीहरू २२ वर्षीया जेसिका मिचेली इविङ र २३वर्षीय केइफर काइल ब्राउनलाई पक्राउ गरेको हो ।  इविङले हत्या गरेको र ब्राउनले सहयोग गरेको अभियोगमा जनाइएको छ । मोन्टगोमेरी काउन्टी जेनरल डिस्ट्रीक कोर्टले सामन्त श्रेष्ठको हत्याको अभियोगमा पक्राउ आदेश (अरेस्ट वारन्ट) जारी गरेको थियो । शनिबार देखापरेको यो हत्याको विषयमा आइतबार देखि गुप्तचरहरू अनुन्धानमा खटिसकेको ब्ल्याक्सबर्ग प्रहरीका लेफ्टिनेन्ट नाथन ओ डेलले जानकारी दिए । भर्जिनिया टेकका प्रवक्ता मार्क ओक्जास्र्कीले इविङ विश्वविद्यालयमा माछा विज्ञान मुख्य विषय र जैविक विज्ञान सहायक विषय लिएर अध्ययन गर्ने वरिष्ठ तहका विद्यार्थी भएको बताए ।यस्तै ब्राउन अगस्तको गर्मीयाममा धर्म तथा संस्कृतिमा स्नत्ताक गरेका थिए । मृतक श्रेष्ठ जैविक विज्ञान प्रमुख विषय लिइ अध्ययनरत बरिष्ठ तहका विद्यार्थी रहेको बाहेक उनको बारेमा अन्य केही खुलाइएको छैन् । श्रेष्ठ विगत चार वर्षदेखि एप्सिलोन सिग्मा अल्फासंस्थासँग आवद्ध रहेको जनाइएको छ । एप्सिलोन सिग्मा अल्फाका अध्यक्ष जेसिका डेनले श्रेष्ठको बारेमा केही बोल्न मानेका छैनन् ।
अन्तराष्ट्रिय मुद्रा कोषमा कार्यरत पिता मणिकलाल श्रेष्ठ र राइजिङग नेपालमा पूर्वकार्यरत् संचारकर्मी राजश्री श्रेष्ठकी छोरी एक मात्र छोरी हुन् । समानता अभिभावकसंगै भजिनिर्यामा बस्दै आइरहेकी थिइन्  । श्रेष्ठ दम्पतिमाथि यो दोस्रो पुत्री वियोगको दुःखद घटना हो । श्रेष्ठ दम्पतिको पहिलो छोरीको केही वर्ष पहिले नेपालमा नै मोटरसाइकल दुर्घटनामा परी मृत्यु भएको थियो । दुई सन्तानमध्ये दुवैको यसरी अल्पायुमा नै दु ःखद निधन भएपछि  सन्तान वियोगको पिडामा डुबेका छन् ।(source)

Friends and family are mourning the loss of Virginia Tech senior Samanata Shrestha as new details continue to emerge in the homicide investigation of the Vienna, Va. native

The uncle of Shrestha, Ram Kharel, confirmed to the Collegiate Times that medical personnel examined the body and “confirmed that there were small marks on her throat so that means that she was suffocated.”

Police have not yet released the official cause of death.

Shrestha, who was a biological science major, was found dead in her vehicle Monday morning, according to Kharel. 

Blacksburg Police confirmed that the black 2004 Mercedes C320 belonged to Shrestha and was found in Montgomery County limits. 

According to a BPD news release, the investigation started with a welfare check and then evolved into a Missing Persons case. It then quickly became a homicide investigation.

Currently, two people have been charged in connection to Shrestha’s death — Jessica Michelle Ewing, 22, a Virginia Tech senior studying fisheries sciences with a secondary major in biological science, and Keifer Kyle Brown, 23, a 2013 graduate.

Ewing has been charged with second-degree murder and was transported today to the Western Virginia Regional Jail, where she is being held without bond.

Brown was charged on Monday with a misdemeanor charge of accessory after the fact, and also a felony charge of “transport, conceal or alter (of) a dead body … with malicious intent and to prevent detection of an unlawful act.”

Police are still investigating the case and have not yet released the connection between the suspects and the victim.

“We have not found the motive and what happened that night,” Kharel said. “They have not given us when exactly it happened between Friday and Saturday evening.”

President Charles Steger sent an open letter to the community Tuesday, describing Shrestha as a University Honors student who teachers say was a “faculty member’s dream.”

“No amount of words can counteract their grief, but know that the university administrators and everyone within this community feels this pain,” Steger said. “I ask that you care for each other.”

Cook Counseling Center offers services and resources for groups and individuals who are coping with the loss of a student.

The family of Shrestha has invited the university community to attend a visitation service from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday at McCoy Funeral Home in Blacksburg. Despite impending weather, a candlelight vigil has been planned for 7 p.m. on Thursday evening on the Drillfield.

According to the Facebook event for the vigil, a memorial fundraiser in Sam’s honor is being set up with the Free Clinic of the New River Valley in Christiansburg where Shrestha volunteered.

Ewing and Brown’s next court appearance is scheduled for April 17 at 2 p.m. in the Montgomery County General District Court.

Very bad news, let her soul rest in peace. The real culprits must be punished with the max penalty so that it would be a case study for future.
