    President Reveley’s email to campus concerning Anjelica “AJ” Hadsell
    April 10, 2015

    There is gravely difficult news to share. As you may have begun to hear through news reports, police have identified remains found in Southampton County as those of our missing student, Anjelica "AJ" Hadsell.

    Though the weight of this horrible prospect has loomed, today extinguishes our hope of AJ’s safe return and confirms our worst fear. Our thoughts are profoundly with her family. These past weeks, they have endured unimaginable anguish and uncertainty, and now they must confront the terrible grief of this loss.

    As we keep AJ's family foremost in our thoughts, our tight-knit community will also feel great heartache. My thoughts are especially with those at Longwood who knew AJ best – her hometown friends, her hallmates, her fellow members of the club softball and club field hockey teams, her professors. I also know how many of you, even if you did not know AJ personally, have been deeply affected and concerned these past weeks. I know how many of you wore ribbons and reached out to friends and family beyond Longwood to raise awareness of the search. We are also grateful to the Longwood Police, who have helped to the utmost in aiding the Norfolk Police in whatever way they could. All of Longwood shares enormously in this grief. I am personally deeply grateful to the Norfolk officials with whom I and others here have been in close touch throughout, and who have worked tirelessly and with such compassion in an investigation that continues.

    In the days and weeks ahead, I encourage all of us to reach out – to faculty, friends, student affairs staff and to our counseling center – to share your feelings and support. Days and grief such as this yield nothing except perspective, and call us all to care that much more for one another. At an appropriate juncture and with the wishes of the family, we will look to hold a service on campus in AJ's memory.

    Friends, Teammates Hold Vigil at Longwood University for A.J. Hadsell
    Posted: Apr 20, 2015 9:22 PM CST
    By Scott Wilson

    Farmville, VA - An emotional night in Farmville Monday, as friends and teammates of 18-year-old A.J. Hadsell held a candlelight vigil in her honor.

    The Longwood University freshman went missing over spring break. Her body was found earlier this month in Southampton County.

    A.J. Hadsell's number 6 club softball jersey hung in front of the crowd of students at Longwood University Monday night. On it, her teammates had written the words "fly free". They say it is because A.J. was and will always be their angel.

    I have a question:
    Has anyone confirmed or asked if AJ had a recent shoulder injury? I read one of her recent twitter posts and she mentioned her "Broken" shoulder.
    The facts are now buried amongst theory, opinion and rumor.

    I'm very curious as to what AJ brought home with her to have with her during Spring Break.

    Maybe we might like to have a thread for What's Missing and What's Accounted for? (AJ's personal belongings.)

    For example: Did she have these items with her in Norfolk and are they accounted for if she did?

    Cellphone (We know she had it but where is it, now?)
    Personal Computer/laptop/IPad/Kindle?
    IPod
    Backsack (Backpack)
    Wallet
    Eye Glasses/Contacts
    Jacket or Coat
    Boots or Winter Shoes
    Gloves
    Scraves
    Hat
    Dental Retainer
    Knee Brace
    Hair and Beauty Products as well as toiletries (toothbrush)
    Car Keys
    House and Dorm Room Key/Keys
    Dorm Building/Access Card/Pass
    Jewelry (Rings, necklaces/ear rings)

    Zapped, a current college student, adds:
    Any Assigned Homework (even over spring break)
    Notebooks, Pens, Pencils,
    Possibly a laptop bag with some school books in it
    College ID, which she would likely carry in her wallet/phone case.


    Inthedetails adds:
    Pillow (I agree, I always take mine whenever I stay somewhere.)
    The facts are now buried amongst theory, opinion and rumor.

    Thanks so much for starting this forum.

    I feel like I've heard very little about AJ's time at Longwood. This period of time--living away from her mother and the rest of her family for the first time, meeting new people--seems like a really crucial time in most people's life. I'm not so old that I don't remember my freshman year, which was fragmented and strange and life-changing.

    So seriously: what do we know? How well was she doing academically? Did she get along with her roommate(s)? Why join the club team rather than the "regular" team (sorry, don't know the proper terminology)? Was she going home every weekend? (I have a sense that she was going home a lot, but I may have misinterpreted or misremembered what I read.)

    And is there any reason to link anything that happened at Longwood to what happened to AJ? That is, were people there questioned seriously as potential witnesses or even perps?

    According to think link, all LU students are required to have a laptop:

    http://www.longwood.edu/usersupport/laptop.htm

    My guess is she would have brought it home for spring break rather than leave it in a dorm. I wonder if LE was able to obtain it?

    I've wondered about this myself since her laptop has never once been mentioned by msm, family, etc. Naturally just assuming of course she did have one for school, but no question she'd have all sorts of personal info on there as well. Hopefully things that have answered some questions for LE as they investigate.

    Yes, we heard about the phone from the description given to searchers, and the Thole search with machetes and metal detectors was specifically for the phone as it "pinged" there. Nothing about a laptop missing. So hopefully it was in the home and a good source of info for LE. If it wasn't, it would certainly be a question as to where it went!

    Hoping that some of her Lancer Family will come here and share stories about Our Girl.

    Can anyone familiar with Longwood discern if this photo on Anjelica's google+ is from a dorm room?

    hey you, Hoosgirl

    LU has a page devoted to information on AJ, IIRC, linked to the media thread, you might inquire there, for a clean read. I'm starting to pull some information together and to ask the thread mappers to consider including points of interest, as time permits, in addition to what SBHack so expertly pulled together. Please, post the information on thread with and "info for map" heads up, if you wish, tia.

    Yep...dorm room photo. She was a resident of Curry Hall, one of our two "high-rise" dorms at LU.

    I apologize for dropping the ball on my twitter research. After receiving the green light from the Mods to post AJ's personal tweets (in order to keep the focus on Our Girl), I am hoping others will join me in taking a look at her feed. My approach includes redacting the @handles of anyone she communicates with, just to err on the side of caution.

    As I've stated on other threads, it offers a window into her daily life, her thoughts, and personality.

    I look forward to hearing your analysis. I promise to post more on this subject ASAP.

    Odd that she got an offer of $200 for a shopping spree when she got back on Spring Break. Wierd coincidence.
