New Details on Killings at U of Virginia | Inside Higher Ed


The Washington Post has new details on the deaths of three University of Virginia students on Sunday.

The students were shot as their class returned from a class trip to Washington to see a play. The Post reported that the course was on African American playwrights, although the professor had invited some students from her other courses to attend as well.

Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. was one of the students who wasn't in the course on African American playwrights. He has been charged with the murders.

He didn't talk to the students he is charged with killing, who were all members of UVA's football team. Jones briefly played on the team in 2018, but didn't appear to know those he killed.

Jones didn't sit with the other students at the play, The Till Trilogy, about Emmet Till, a 14-year-old who was lynched in Mississippi in 1955. The students had dinner after the play at an Ethiopian restaurant.

Their professor, Theresa Davis, had arranged the field trip and funding for the day. The students didn't have to pay for anything.
