[September 19, 2009]  FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Police say they have found four bodies in a central Virginia home and are investigating a quadruple homicide.

Prince Edward County Commonwealth's Attorney James R. Ennis tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch that the bodies were found Friday afternoon in a home near the Longwood University campus about 50 miles west of Richmond. School officials sent an e-mail urging students to be vigilant.

Police are looking for a suspect, 20-year-old Richard Alden Samuel McCorsky III. Ennis says McCorsky is suspected of murder, robbery and grand larceny.

The prosecutor says McCorsky is armed and dangerous.

The identities of the victims and the cause of death were not immediately available.
