On December 16, 1989 Judge Bob Vance was killed when he opened up a package that contained a pipe bomb. Two days later an Attorney lost part of his arm when he opened a similar package. The police found two unopened packages that contained similar pipe bombs. The FBI's Behavioral Sciences Unit provided a psychological profile of the bomber. The profile matched that of Walter Leroy Moody, who was convicted of a similar bombing in 1972. A store clerk identified Moody as the individual who purchased four pounds of gunpowder and one thousand CCI primers. Walter Leroy Moody was convicted, and sentenced to seven life sentences.

On Friday, June 22, 1984, a couple set off for a camping trip but got lost and fell asleep at a scenic overlook in rural Virginia. They awoke to a person tapping on their car window; they both got out of the car to find out this man had a gun. He ordered the boyfriend to run to the woods and drove off with his girlfriend. The man repeatedly raped and sodomised the young woman and threatened to kill her. Instead, he let her go. When she arrived back to her car, she met her boyfriend who was there with the cops. The young lady positively identified Edward Honaker as the man who raped her. Honaker was given three life sentences, but new DNA testing might provide new information about the rapist.
