Two women were reported missing in Virginia, and now a suspect has been arrested in connection to both their deaths, police said.
Harrisonburg police and Charlottesville police were both conducting missing people investigations that led officers to Linda Lane in Harrisonburg, Virginia, where they found two bodies.
The victims were found by Harrisonburg police detectives in a lot and near each other. Though, Harrisonburg police said the deaths happened at different times.
Police identified the victims as Allene Elizabeth “Beth” Redmon, 54, and Tonita Lorice Smith, 39.

He was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of concealing, transporting or altering a dead body. Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact police at (540) 432-7788.
