RE: The Murder of Nicole Lovell, 13 -- Virginia

Natalie Keepers seems like a very strange person for sure, koko.

She told the court that she used to be bullied like Nicole and that she was suicidal until college when she started seeing a therapist. It appears her defense will likely be mental incapacity.

Meanwhile, Nicole's dad ^ and stepmother did an interview with Dr. Phil that's going to air on Wednesday.

David Lovell says that he thinks Keepers participated in killing his daughter, that she was more than an accessory, and that Nicole would have fought back (he speculates that's how Keepers got the scratch on her face which is visible in the mugshot).

Mr. Lovell also revealed that he and Nicole's mom were aware since Christmas that Nicole was interacting with men online (men who tried to portray themselves as boys) and that they'd previously restricted Nicole from her phone and social media.

RE: The Murder of Nicole Lovell, 13 -- Virginia

Some more stuff, not much new. This poor kid was so mixed up she didn't know which way was up

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/nationw...story.html

Slain Virginia teen told friends she planned to run away with alleged killer

The 13-year-old Blacksburg, Virginia, girl who was abducted and killed last month told friends that the Virginia Tech student accused in her slaying was her boyfriend and talked of running away and starting a family with him, a friend said.

Nicole Lovell described David Eisenhauer, 18, as "funny and really nice" in the weeks leading up to her Jan. 27 disappearance. And Eisenhauer, who is now charged with first-degree murder in Nicole's death, appeared to be a conscientious engineering student during the period in which prosecutors said he and another Virginia Tech freshman plotted the high-profile slaying.

Nicole's friends and the first interview with Eisenhauer's Virginia Tech roommate reveal fresh details about how the two teenagers' paths crossed, their relationship and the period leading up to her death and his arrest.

Natasha Bryant, 13, said Nicole - a friend and classmate - told her and other friends that she and Eisenhauer were dating. She said the two initially made contact on Facebook and corresponded online. Natasha said she was unaware of Eisenhauer's age at the time, but she and other friends shared concerns about Nicole's online activities.

"She told people she was talking to him," said Natasha, whose father agreed to let her be interviewed. "We didn't think it was that big of a deal because she didn't make that much of it. She always talked of running away with him. She used to talk to a lot of older guys. A lot of people told her not to. I told her it's not safe. I told her she was going to be hurt or kidnapped or something."

Eisenhauer's roommate at Virginia Tech told The Washington Post that the engineering student and athlete seemed in many ways an average freshman. He was a diligent student who spent hours completing homework assignments while also dedicating time outside of the classroom to the university's cross country team.

"He seemed very excited to be at Tech," said the roommate, who agreed to an interview with The Post on the condition of anonymity to speak candidly. "He was very excited about running cross country for the school."

The roommate said that Eisenhauer never mentioned having a girlfriend, and he said he had never once mentioned Nicole. The roommate said that although they were not friends socially, he considered Eisenhauer to be a mostly typical dorm room companion.

"Nothing extraordinary about him, nothing horrible about him," he said.

But he also described Eisenhauer as a loner and a difficult person to understand. He said that Eisenhauer did not appear to have many friends on campus and kept mostly to himself, dividing his time between classes, studying and running practices twice a day.

He said that Eisenhauer occasionally stayed up until 2 a.m. finishing homework only to have to wake at 7 a.m. for cross country commitments.

The roommate said that nothing about Eisenhauer's behavior stood out to him during the week that the middle school girl went missing.

"Nothing David said during the week was cause for suspect," the roommate said. "However, much of what he said did seem strange after I found out he was arrested."

Asked to explain further, the roommate said that Eisenhauer "was just out late at night and that wasn't usual for him."

The roommate said he returned to their dorm on Saturday, Jan. 30, to find Virginia State Police troopers and FBI officials investigating the slaying.

"It shocked me because I never expected it at all," he said.

Eisenhauer's attorney declined to comment Monday.

Nicole's friends said she endured bullying at school, but remained a bubbly girl who loved pouring her feelings out in a notebook, painting and pandas.

"We would always goof around in the hallway at school," Natasha Bryant said of their time at Blacksburg Middle School. "She stood out in a crowd."

Prosecutors have not revealed a motive for Nicole's killing, but two law enforcement officials have told The Post that Eisenhauer had sexual contact with the girl.

At a bond hearing last week, Montgomery County, Virginia, Commonwealth's Attorney Mary Pettitt described an elaborate plot by Eisenhauer and his friend Natalie Keepers, 19, who has been charged as an accessory before and after Nicole's killing and with helping dispose of the girl's body. The plot they hatched took shape over the course of the month of January, authorities said.

Pettitt told a judge that Eisenhauer and Keepers bounced ideas back and forth about how to kill Nicole, bought a shovel and picked a remote spot to slit her throat. Keepers was also an engineering student at Virginia Tech. Both are from the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Pettitt said Eisenhauer used his relationship with Nicole to lure her out of her home Jan. 27 and abduct her. Nicole's body was found several days later along the Virginia-North Carolina border. A preliminary investigation found that she died of stab wounds.

Gaige Kern, a Virginia Tech distance runner who knows Eisenhauer, took to Facebook to write an open letter to Eisenhauer in the wake of his arrest, questioning how well he knew his friend. Kern published the statement publicly online and subsequently declined to be interviewed by The Post.

"My ability to trust has diminished, and I'm now skeptical of everyone around me," Kern wrote. "Was this newly surfaced personality always there, lurking in the shadows, hiding amidst lies? And if it was, how did you hide it so well?"

Natasha Bryant, the middle schooler, said she did not know when Nicole began corresponding with Eisenhauer, but said they initially made contact on Facebook. She said another friend told her Nicole showed her numerous messages from Eisenhauer and that the two would frequently argue.

"She was looking for someone who would give her attention and give her some compassion," Natasha said, noting that Nicole was frequently bullied at Blacksburg Middle School. "A lot of people talked behind her back. They talked about the scar on her throat."

The scar on Nicole's neck was the result of a tracheotomy; she had survived lymphoma and a liver transplant, among other health ailments early in life.

Natasha said the bullying left Nicole depressed. She talked of cutting herself and running away. Another friend said Nicole had reached out to an online counseling group to discuss the bullying.

"It was having a big impact on her life," the friend said.

Still, Natasha considered Nicole a good friend. She said that Nicole's ability to overcome her health problems was impressive, and she developed a close circle of friends.

Some of those friends were expected to attend a vigil planned for Monday night to celebrate Nicole's life. Nearly 900 people had said they would attend in response to a Facebook invitation; Blacksburg Police Chief Anthony Wilson wrote in a statement that the family welcomes the event.

"I have spoken to the family of Nicole Lovell, and while they are devastated by the loss of their precious daughter, they hold no ill feelings towards anyone other than the individuals who are responsible for her death," the statement read. "They would like nothing better than to have Nicole's memory be associated with building a greater sense of community."

Natasha said Nicole's memory would remain with her long after Monday night.

"She is on my mind 24/7," Bryant said.

RE: The Murder of Nicole Lovell, 13 -- Virginia

Sounds like she was a mixed up kid, one who had gone through a lot in her 13 years of life, Six.

Here's an update on the case:

[Image: David-Eisenhauer--Natalie-Keepers--Nicole-Lovell.jpg]

Police believe they now know how Maryland man and Virginia Tech student David Eisenhauer first made contact with teen girl Nicole Lovell whom they say he kidnapped and killed, reports CBS Baltimore.

According to the station, a search warrant obtained by the Roanoke Times shows that Eisenhauer, 18, used the screen name "Dr_Tombstone" on the social messaging app Kik. He has been charged in the kidnapping and death of a teenage girl.

Investigators believe that 13-year-old Nicole Lovell had only begun communicating with "Dr_Tombstone" a few days before her death, reports the station.

The paper explains that the Kik account is registered to "David A." and was linked to a Gmail account that has been connected to Eisenhauer.

Eisenhauer has been charged with kidnapping and killing Lovell. Natalie Keepers, who is also from Maryland, faces charges in connection with her death.

Their next court date is March 28.

=======================================

I'm very curious as to the motive and whether Nicole was sexually assaulted before her murder. Such a sad case.

RE: The Murder of Nicole Lovell, 13 -- Virginia

The defendants attended a preliminary hearing today. The judge found that there was sufficient evidence for the case to go to a grand jury.

Eisenhauer claims he didn't know Nicole in person. But, his accomplice Keepers gave a full confession and admitted that she was involved in planning the murder, disposing of Nicole's body and belongings, and attempting to cover up the crime.

The details that were shared by the case detective in court today are sad and disturbing. Details: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-...death.html

Keepers told LE that Eisenhauer was a sociopath and that she was a sociopath in the making. She said Eisenhauer made her feel like part of a secret club. Worthless pieces of shit.

RE: The Murder of Nicole Lovell, 13 -- Virginia

Motive?

Court documents show a Virginia Tech student accused of killing a 13-year-old girl said he might have had sex with the girl and was worried she was pregnant.

Nineteen-year-old David Eisenhauer is charged with first-degree murder in Nicole Lovell's death.

Twenty-year-old Natalie Keepers is charged with accessory before the fact and concealing a body. Eisenhauer and Keepers are Maryland natives who were freshmen at Virginia Tech when Nicole was slain in January 2016.

The Roanoke Times reports that according to court documents filed this week, Keepers told investigators that Eisenhauer met Nicole at a party and was worried he might have had sex with her, but couldn't remember because he blacked out.

Keepers also said that Eisenhauer was worried that Nicole might have been pregnant.

Keepers is scheduled for trial next month.

ONE DOWN...

[Image: 490AD32500000578-0-image-a-30_1518198469051.jpg]

David Eisenhauer (right), 20, pleaded no contest to the murder of 13-year-old Nicole Lovell in Virginia court today. The plea came on the fourth day of testimony in his trial.

Nicole's mom Tammy Weeks teared up as he made the no contest plea.

Prosecutors told jurors Eisenhauer, then 18 and attending Virginia Tech, killed the 7th grader in 2016 because he was afraid she would expose their relationship.

Lovell went missing after sneaking out of her house the night of January 27, 2016. Her body was found in North Carolina three days later, with 14 stab wounds.

The no contest plea means that Eisenhauer will no longer fight the charges against him, but he is not addmitting guilt. Eisenhauer faces the possibility of life in prison, plus 15 years, when he's sentenced in May.

Meanwhile, Eisenhauer's alleged accomplice, Natalie Keepers, is being charged as an accessory and is awaiting a trial expected to start in September. She is accused of helping him plan the murder and dispose of the body.
