Suspect in Va. slayings, boy's abduction at large

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Police have identified the two people slain on Christmas Eve that led to a search for a 2-year-old boy abducted from the scene who was later found safe in the backseat of an SUV.

Police on Sunday said 60-year-old Edward Lee Bowmer Jr. and 56-year-old Robin Sheryl Clapp were shot to death.

Bowmer was from the street where the bodies were found and Clapp was from Mechanicsville.

Neither was related to 2-year-old Kaiden Burnside. Police say the shooting suspect stole the vehicle in which Kaiden was seated.
