Blacksburg, Va. police today arrested Virginia Tech track athlete David Eisenhauer and charged him with the abduction and murder of a local 13-year-old.


Cops arrested Eisenhauer Saturday morning, accusing the Hokies freshman of abducting Nicole Lovell. The 13-year-old liver transplant patient had been missing since this past Wednesday. Authorities discovered her body in North Carolina later Saturday, and added murder to Eisenhauer’s charges. He is being held without bond.

Virginia Tech says Eisenhauer, an engineering major, has been suspended, while the athletics department has deleted his profile from its website. Eisenhauer was a three-time state track champion and two-time cross country runner-up during his high school career.
