A friend of Hilscher’s arrives at WAJ to join her to walk to chemistry class. The friend is questioned by detectives and explains that on Monday mornings, Hilscher’s boyfriend would drop her off and go back to Radford University where he was a student. She tells police that the boyfriend is an avid gun user. This leads the police to seek him as a “person of interest” and potential suspect.
