Everyone I spoke with this weekend kept saying the same thing, "Why would Padgett kill Cara, why? why? why?"
According to this Roanoke Times article, the killer of the local 18 year old girl admitted to kicking her, choking her and bludgeoning her to death so he could steal her new SUV.
"He stated that it was in better shape than his 'to make his journey' out of Roanoke," according to the warrant. Padgett stated that he choked and kicked and beat her with a tire iron until she was dead."
I am just sick over this. Give the piece of shit the death penalty.
