Friends Say Goodbye To Murdered Virginia Tech Student


Blacksburg, VA - Samanata Shrestha's family was in Blacksburg Wednesday to allow visitation for her university friends.

ABC 13 called prior to going to Blacksburg to find out the family's wishes, in regards to media coverage.

In this particular case, the family requested privacy at the visitation for Sam.

For the hour that ABC 13 was off the funeral home's property, we saw a few dozen people come and go. Some carrying flowers; others arm and arm comforting one another.

WSET has also been in touch with Jessica Ewing's family, the woman accused of the murder.

Her sister contacted our David Tate through Facebook Wednesday saying:

"My prayers will be for Samanata's friends and family, as well as Virginia Tech today as they go through the celebration and remembrance of her life." - Beth Ewing

Shrestha will next be taken to northern Virginia where a familial service will be held for her later in the week.
