Investigation Continues in Homicide Cases

The Alexandria Police Department continues to actively investigate the Ruthanne Lodato, Ron Kirby, and Nancy Dunning homicide cases. There have been no arrests or charges made relating to any of these crimes.

Recent news reports have linked Charles Severance to these investigations. Mr. Severance’s name was brought to the attention of the Alexandria Police Department during the routine analysis of crime tips. Further investigation by multiple law enforcement agencies determined that Mr. Severance is a convicted felon in unlawful possession of firearms. He was located by law enforcement officials in West Virginia, where he was arrested on a Loudoun County warrant for the weapons violation.

The Alexandria Police Department has not charged Mr. Severance with any crime at this time. Detectives continue to follow up on the crime tip information; however, it is premature to name him as the only possible suspect in these investigations. The Police Department will only release information when it has been verified to be accurate.

The Police Department encourages the community to consider this investigation ongoing and continue to be aware of their personal safety. Please report information in these cases to the tip line at 703.746.6864 or crimetips@alexandriava.gov.
