A search warrant obtained by The Roanoke Times connects David Eisenhauer to 13-year-old Blacksburg resident Nicole Lovell.
Eisenhauer, an 18-year-old Virginia Tech freshman from Columbia, Maryland, is charged with kidnapping and killing Lovell.
The FBI brought in a “cyber squad” agent to help investigate, contacting Kik app developers to request slain 13-year-old Lovell’s usage records on the app.
Through those records, investigators found Lovell used the name “Nicole_lovell_1514,” and had only communicated with one other user, “Dr_Tombstone,” in the days before her death.
Kik was the last social media account Lovell used before her death.
Records from the developer showed that “Dr_Tombstone” belonged to someone listed as “David A.”
Eisenhauer and his co-defendant, Virginia Tech sophomore Natalie Keepers, are expected to appear in court on March 28 in Montgomery County, Virginia.
