    Sounds scary! The video at the link says that LE has determined that her husband was NOT in the area when she died - so was it a stranger? Or was it someone she met online? Or was it a neighbor?

    I can't understand the brutality of people sometimes! If her husband is not around, is he out to sea?

    My niece was born in VB when my brother was in the navy. A lot of things go on there. My brother described it like this, "You would think since we're all in the same situation, that when husbands are at sea, the guys at home would help out the wives. Be respectful and help them out. Well, it's usually the opposite."

    He wouldn't elaborate, but it had him pretty upset at the time. He was the guy, while at home would help the women in their base housing. He would get them to honest mechanics, bring them shopping for groceries, if they couldn't get there themselves, or bring them to appointments or the hospital. All with my sister in law and daughter by his side. He said that way he and they were protected.

    Native Republic woman murdered in Virginia

    A young woman is murdered in her Virginia home, and the news is hitting hard here in the Ozarks. 24 year old Shana Hight was a Republic native, and just graduated from Republic High School in 2005.


    Shana Hight was found murdered in her Virginia Beach apartment on Monday. We don't know any other details about her death, but do know she had many friends and family here in the Springfield area that will miss her dearly.

    The news of Shana's murder has spread through her Virginia Beach neighborhood.

    [Notes:Brandon Erb/Neighbor] Everybody knows everybody and I just wouldn't have expected it.

    This is local for me. From what I understand her husband was deployed (out to sea). It reminds me of another case we had here in Norfolk VA. A Navy wife, Michelle Bosko, was raped and murdered. There's a book out on it now called The Wrong Guys:Murder, False Confessions and the Norfolk Four. Four men were found guilty even though wasn't much evidence against any of them except one.

    It's so dangerous for these young women when their husbands go out to sea. I do remember in one article that a man (neighbor) came to her door and she openly told him that her husband was deployed (not a good idea).

    I hope they find out who did this soon. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and especially her husband.

    I am local too and remember that case . Didn't he just go back to court ( one of the guys charged with her murder ) because the other guy admitted he acted alone ?

    Oh how horrible. God Bless this young lady. Pretty girl. Your husband is serving our country and this happens?

    You want for heart breaking? I just looked and saw they had one of those "wedding channel" sites. They've only been married a little over a year. Not much information on there except the wedding would be in Virginia Beach.

    Shana also twittered, but gave no indication of her location. Her FB and twitter showed she was very interested in the paranormal. I have no doubt somehow she'll give her husband a sign.

    BTW, it appears she was a homebody. She had taken up knitting. The young woman was doing everything right. This makes me so ill. RIP pretty young one.

    Another article where a neighbor said she would see Shana Hight walk her dog. The young women are frightened and taking extra percautions.

    I have people in Virginia Beach. Friends in Chesapeake. It's scary to know these young people are in any danger.

    Yes, one is saying he acted alone. The book tells about how they were coerced into making a confession. I haven't read it so I really don't have an opinion on it.

    I don't think anywhere is really safe anymore. It did seem like this young lady was not into any behaviors that might have put her more at risk. It'll probably end up being someone she either worked with or right there in her neighborhood. I haven't heard anything else locally about it. It's been kept pretty quiet unless I just missed it on the news.

    My fiancée is deployed out of Norfolk and even though he really didn't get to know our neighbors I have, while we don't live in a bad area were close to one and you really never know. The other upside ( and really for this reason ) you can hear everything in these apartments, it's sad I know when my upstairs neighbor is using the bathroom. I can't wait until he comes home.


    I feel for her family and hope they have answers soon.

    Enchanting eyes, I know what you mean. I'm not married so I'm alone much of the time too. You really have to be careful, and like you, I like in a Hampton Roads city that has some high crime areas. You can never be too careful (unless you're not leaving the house at all).
    Thank you to YOU and your husband for his service.

    BTW, someone commented after the second link that was posted about why the ME wouldn't say how this young lady was killed. Isn't that to protect the investigation? For the longest time LE wouldn't release the manner in which a 16-year old girl (Megan Landowski) was killed because they felt it would compromise the investigation. I hope the person who did this left lots of evidence.

    I feel so bad for her husband.

    Looks like her husband might have been deployed on the USS Harry Truman. What a horrible thing for him to come home to. My son is also deployed on that ship. I will have to ask him if he knew him. I hope that they can catch the perp quickly.
