RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Richmond Fire crews found a body in Tuckahoe Creek just off the James River on Monday afternoon, according to on-scene sources.

The call for a water rescue near the 100 block of Tempsford Lane in Richmond came in at 4:21 p.m. Monday, May 22. According to Richmond Fire, Henrico rescue crews were looking for a missing person on the James River Monday afternoon and called Richmond crews for additional help.

Richmond Fire eventually found a body that had washed up in someone’s backyard along the east branch of Tuckahoe Creek, near Williams Island.

Charlotte Finn couldn’t believe it when she heard a body was found in her parents’ neighborhood.

“It was definitely really unusual. It’s not a neighborhood where that kind of stuff happens,” Finn said. “We’re mostly concerned about, like, wildlife that comes from the river with the dogs and stuff.” 

Raymond Neville, Battalion Chief with the Richmond Fire Department, said the department does not believe there was any foul play involved, but the body will have to be sent to the medical examiner for further information.

Neville added that while this type of incident does not happen frequently, people should still be cautious and let their friends or family know when they plan on going out on the water.
