RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Richmond Police Department has found the body of a 23-year-old man that was first reported missing out of Prince George County in April. Police say the suspects in the case have been charged in connection with another murder.
Cameron Cole, 23, of Prince George County, was found dead in a wooded area of the 2100 block of Commerce Road in Richmond. According to police, Cole had been reported missing by his family in late April.
During an investigation into a homicide on Wednesday, May 3, Richmond detectives developed information that led to the arrest of three suspects. This investigation also led detectives to the location where Cole was found.
Around 6:30 a.m. on May 3, officers with the Richmond Police Department were called to the 1100 block of Richmond Highway for a reported shooting.
