Investigators continue pursuing leads in 2004 unsolved murder


ISLE OF WIGHT, Co. – Investigators tested the DNA of a Virginia Beach man during the investigation into the unsolved murder of Carrie Singer, according to a search warrant.

Someone murdered Singer in 2004 and left her body in a farmer’s field in Isle of Wight County. Recently, investigators released a description of a suspect, using cutting edge technology based on DNA evidence.

With the sketch out in the public, investigators got a Crime Line tip about a man resembling  the sketch, the search warrant says. The man is named in the search warrant, but News 3 isn’t naming him because he hasn’t been charged in the investigation.

‘The Snowman’ review: Jo Nesbo adaptation melts into mess

Mister Alfredson, you could have saved it. We gave you all the tools — a star-studded cast, a blockbuster best-selling Scandinavian murder novel by Jo Nesbø, and three-time Oscar winning editor Thelma Schoonmaker. So why is “The Snowman” such a jumbled nonsensical mess?

Director Tomas Alfredson has copped to the fact that scheduling issues were a big part of the problem, which doesn’t excuse what ends up on screen. It’s a film that deals with extreme, distressing violence against women, and that proper care wasn’t taken to make sure that this story was told the right way is troubling.

“The Snowman” has everything (just not a coherent plot): creepy abortion doctors, human trafficking, really bad Scandinavian techno, Michael Fassbender passed out in the snow, a terrible wig on Rebecca Ferguson, Chloe Sevigny chopping heads off chickens, J.K. Simmons attempting a Norweigan-ish accent, Val Kilmer singing “Happy Birthday” while chugging vodka out of
