New Sniper on the loose in West Virignia?

Fears of fresh ‘sniper’ spree
(I’m not sure if there is really a debate here, so if it needs to be moved I apologise)

So, does anyone more local to West Virginia have detailed information about this?
How does this story get reported on local news?

Does it look like another nutter on the loose with a rifle, or is it too premature to tell at present? Are the three murders related?

What are the implications if it is another sniper? Has the original Washington sniper set a dangerous precedent? Will we continue to see a spate of such ‘random’ attacks now, and if so what can be done, if anything, to stop this form of attack?
