Ended up being a Double Murder Suicide, not a triple homicide

@bigdaddylongknob Crimeinsiders says there still not sure but 8news is jumping the gun. Maybe a retaliation shooting connected to the Raven St killing only days ago. Is Mosby Court the new Gilpin Court?

These apartments are Fairhill apartments, not Mosby.

@Ano Ali Nobody refers to that area as Fairhill even though that’s the name of the apartments. Hop the fence and your in Mosby courts. In fact most of the people that hangout in that area are from Mosby Courts.

@Jct What do you mean nobody? I know alot of people there who refer to that area as Fairhill, because that’s the name of the apartments-smh I have alot of friends who live in those apartments,and as a matter of fact, I just left there a few weeks ago. What part of the east end your from? Just because it’s beside Mosby, doesn’t mean that it’s Mosby court. I know alot of people who live in Fairhill, and not everyone who lives there hangs in Mosby, or vice versa.Just because people hang in those apartments from Mosby doesn’t make it… Read more »

Ano, seriously look at Google maps, Mosby Court is the area, not just the buildings. Just like how Eastview, Whitcomb and East End have areas. Don’t get so upset over the generalization for an area. Much like Churchill is used for a large swath of the east side of the city, despite there are smaller neighborhoods; Union Hill and Chimborazo don’t even show up for example.

@Ano Ali people only say that when they don’t want to be associated with certain high crime areas. Believe me I know

As a non-native Richmonder, it’s helpful to describe the area accurately because some of the areas are so large but very different; it’s difficult to gain perspective. I really appreciate when folks use Union Hill, Chimborazo, Church Hill or Peter Paul, etc. to describe an area. To me, it’s confusing to refer to everything east of downtown as Church Hill.

The Fan and Museum District don’t seem easily confused although they’re right next to each other.

@R Im not upset over a generalization over a comment.What I’m saying is that the name of the apartments is called Fairhills, that’s a fact.I know that it’s beside Mosby court, but it’s technically not Mosby court. Mosby court is not an area, it’s a housing project. Just like Whitcomb court is not an area, it’s an housing project under RRHA. I live in Eastview.Eastview,Union Hill,and Chimborazo are areas. @Jct I’ve been in the east end for 37 years. I’ve lived in high crime areas my entire life so when you say that I don’t want to be associated with… Read more »

The name changed about 2012. Sorry to hear this. That area must have been cursed… so many deaths…

Unfortunately “Mosby Court” has been generalized as a “community” rather than an apartment complex. But I am a bit surprised because you really don’t hear about crime there and it always look well kept.

What is the worst part about this is that neighbors heard the gunshots but ignored it. And the children who were in the apartment for days with the corpses, one being their mother… without food and possibly sanitation, depending on age. And also depending on age, how scared for life they will be from this horror? 🙁

I want to know, given his criminal history why he was out of prison, 1st time, violent felony, 10 yr sentence, 8 suspended, released and then violated with another felony which should have sent him back for the 8 yr suspended. He ended up with 7 yrs, 8months of that suspended. Catch and release and this is what happens. There is no reason for it… well, there is but I won’t go down that road. So sorry for the children involved.

It’s a real tragedy, and my heart goes out to the families involved.

@#21, you raise up a good question. We need to change how we use prisons.

I’ve been surprised to see the real lack of punishment for many of the criminals caught and convicted for violent and other serious crimes around here in the last 5 years.

We’ve had some really misguided prison policies in the past, but this is also hurting our communities.
