Yesterday, I spoke to some people who knew Spotsylvania High School graduate Ross T. Ashley, the young man who killed a Virginia Tech police officer on the college’s campus in Blacksburg last Thursday.

They were all stunned to see what had happened because that wasn’t the person they knew when he was at the University of Virginia’s Wise campus in the 2007-08 school year.

Ashley, 22, graduated from Spotsylvania High School in 2007 after a career that included academic and athletic success.
