July 15, 2001


— A man was charged Saturday with shooting and killing four people, police said.

The motive remained a mystery.

Doug Provost, 34, of Fairfax, was arrested Saturday on four counts of first-degree murder, police said.

The victims were identified of Jessica Bishop, 18, her father Mitchell Bishop, 46, Derrick Davis, 23, George Weatherwax, 19. All were at a home late Friday owned by the Bishops about 40 miles northeast of Burlington.

"As to what actually took place to cause this to occur, we haven't put that together yet," state police Capt. Bob White told WCAX-TV Saturday.
