ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA9) -- Alexandria residents are paying close attention to what is happening in West Virginia. They're anxiously waiting to find out what will come out of 53-year-old Charles Severance's extradition hearing Monday and the rest of the investigation.
"Anything we read we're glued to the news, to the TV, newspapers, what's the latest. It's one of those things you want justice do its right way on the other hand we kind of hope that it is him then everyone can get off the edge of the fence and that makes you nervous. We walk all the time and you think everyone is a suspect and that's a terrible way to feel," Chris Altendorf, Parishioner said.
At Ruthanne Lodato's church, Blessed Sacrament, parishioners have been yearning for a sense of relief and hoping the uncertainty they've been feeling all along comes to an end soon.
"We're hopeful there is going to be some justice served not only for her but for the other victims. I look forward to hearing more and hoping this will bring some safety to the community," Loretta Tuell, parishioner and Lodato's neighbor said.
