The bodies of 15- year- old Kristin Lisk and her 12- year- old sister Kati were found Tuesday in Hanover County, 40 miles from their home.
Police believe they were abducted less than hour after they stepped off their school bus last Thursday.

Andrew Cunanan's alleged murder trail began in Minneapolis April 27th, with the discovery of a man beaten to death inside a warehouse.
The warehouse's owner was found dead last Friday.
And on Sunday, a Chicago Millionaire was found beaten to death in his garage.
Police think Cunanan's motive may have been to kill his sexual partners, because friends say he found out he's H-I-V positive.

The latest NEWS-7/Mason-Dixon poll puts former Democratic Congressman L-F Payne on top in the Lieutenant Governor's race.
Payne pulls a 36-percent to Republican John Hager's 30-percent.
But 34- percent of likely voters are still undecided.
The poll came two days after Republican Coleman Andrews dropped out of the race.
In the Attorney General's race, only two of the four Republicans are out of the single digits.
Mark Earley has 14 percent, Ken Stolle (STAH-lee) comes in with 13 percent.

But Davis says he's ready to spend one million dollars of his own money on T-V ads before the June 10th primary.
Meanwhile, Democrat Bill Dolan narrowly beats Davis and Kilgore in a head-to-head match-up... but is just edged out by Earley and (STAH-lee) Stolle.
