    VA - Lois Schmidt, 29, & Jonathan Vetrano, 7, Virginia Beach, 28 June 2004


    Ten years ago, someone killed Lois and Jonathan in the family's home. The killer shot and wounded Lois' 25-year-old brother, Morgan Bloise, killed one of the dogs and shot another, and set the house on fire...

    After two failed marriages, Lois and her two children - Jonathan and Samantha, then just a baby - had moved back to her parents' house in Level Green in 2003. Her divorce from her second husband was finalized early the next year....

    Nancy said she believes Lois and Jonathan may have been killed in a murder-for-hire plot. She believes the person who came to the door that morning was there for an identity check, to make sure it was the right house, and the fire was set in an attempt to eliminate evidence. "Whoever came in here had to know what they were doing," she said. "It happened fast."


    During the morning of June 28, 2004, 29-year-old Lois Schmidt and her 7-year-old son Jonathan Vetrano were fatally shot in the head. The victims' house was also set on fire.

    At approximately 6:00 a.m., an unknown male approached the victims' home in Virginia Beach. The unknown male informed Schmidt that he was a former classmate of hers at their high school. Schmidt did not recognize him and closed the door. At approximately 7:00 a.m. that same morning, a white male (possibly Hispanic) was observed sitting in a raspberry-colored 1999 Chevrolet pickup truck in the vicinity of the victims' residence. The truck has not been seen in the neighborhood since the incident occurred. Additionally, the driver is being sought for questioning.

    The suspect being sought for these murders is described as a white male (possibly Hispanic) 6'0"-6'1", weighing approximately 160-165 pounds, and wearing black clothing to include a mask.

    How very convenient Samantha was with her father, the 2nd ex, when this happened. What a horrible crime

    This is such a sad case. My heart goes out to Samantha and the rest of the family.
