Nic Robinson is a 21-year-old history major at Radford University. She said Saturday that Ross Truett Ashley wasn’t the kind of person to commit the crimes he’s accused of committing. She says he was friendly and nice.

Robinson says Ashley had never talked about guns and didn’t use drugs or drink heavily.

 

She says he isn’t the monster some people are portraying him as.

J.D. Muller played football with Ashley in high school. He says Ashley was a tough competitor who had a strong knowledge of Bible Scriptures.
