Good evening..
Police say all evidence points to that suspect -- Richard Evonitz -- in the murders of *at least* the three girls -- sisters Kristin and Kati Lisk, and 16-year-old Sophia Silva.

((Authorities say there are several reasons Richard Evonitz is considered the likely killer of Sophia Silva and the Lisk sisters.
Evonitz committed suicide last week -- at the time he was being pursued by police in connection with the rape of a 15-year-old girl in South Carolina.

"THAT IS BECAUSE OF PAPERWORK WE FOUND IN HIS APARTMENT BUT ALSO WE CAN PLACE HIM IN THAT AREA AND THESE CRIMES ARE SIMILAR TO WHAT HE DID HERE"
[RUNS=:08]
[OUT Q=what he did here]



That paperwork -- newspaper clippings and handwritten notes referring to the the slayings of the Lisk sisters.
They were kidnapped back in 1997, shortly after they got off their school buses near their home in Spotsylvania County.
Sophia Silva was taken from her family's front porch less than a year earlier -- also in Spotsylvania county.
When the murders happened, Evonitz was in the Navy -- at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren -- which is just north of Spotsylvania County.
The Washington Post is reporting that Evonitz was a suspect in the killings of the Lisks and Silva shortly after their bodies were found, but at the time there was not enough forensic evidence to charge him.
State Police have NOT named Evonitz as a suspect in another murder that happened in that same time period -- the 1996 slaying of Alicia Showalter Reynolds in Culpeper County.
But police do say he hasn't been ruled out, and there was some evidence in Evonitz's apartment, referring to the location where Reynolds' body was found.
Authorities say D-N-A will determine for sure whether Evonitz is responsible for the Virginia murders.
Those results should be available this week.
