The body of 40-year-old Joel Elkins of Liberty Road in Roanoke was found late yesterday afternoon, at the Professional Arts Building.
Elkins was 30 feet below the parking lot, in a concrete pit sometimes used to store a ladder.

Inmates at the City jail have come up with an ingenious system to communicate with each other.
An inmate simply mails a letter withOUT putting a stamp on it. Instead of his own return address, he writes the name of the inmate he wants to GET the letter in the upper left corner.
So when it's "returned" for postage, it actually goes to the OTHER inmate... rather than back to the original sender.
