Woman found dead in yard on Point Hollow Drive

Crime

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Henrico Police Department said at 9:27 a.m. officers were called to the 7800 block of Point Hollow Drive, which is near Douglas Wilder Middle School.

Police say they are now investigating a domestic-related death of a woman whose body was found “in a yard.” The identity is being withheld until the next-of-kin is notified.

Police say they are not looking for anyone connected to this incident at this time, and they will be releasing more information as it becomes available.

Neighbors said were shocked that the crime took place in what they describe as a “quiet” area.

Anthony Davis tells 8News that he has lived in the Sterling Forest Community for over 15 years but he didn’t know the woman who was killed.

“It’s a tragic, tragic thing to happen. So hopefully the family will, again I didn’t really know the family, I didn’t know who lived in the house. But just hoping the best for them and the outcome again it’s really tragic,” Davis said.

Davis said a man who lived in the house where the investigation was focused, could often be seen walking his dog on the road and would say hello as he passed. Davis said he thought he was very friendly.

According to Henrico County Public Records, the home where the investigation was centered — 7800 Point Hollow Drive — belongs to someone named Andre Vincent Keels. Police could not verify any suspect information or an exact address on Thursday night.
