A Richmond woman sat grieving on the curb in the city’s East End Thursday.
She had celebrated a birthday last week, and an anniversary a couple of days ago. But sitting in the middle of a crime scene, she said she will have to start planning a funeral for the father of her two sons, who was found dead inside a car on Conrad Street.
Police say they were called to the East End around 1 p.m. for a “person down.” Crime Insider sources say that the man found dead inside his car was in his 20’s, and are calling it a murder. Police have not confirmed that information and are calling it a death investigation at this time.
“I seen over thirty police officers and six detectives,” said a neighbor who asked to remain anonymous. “I knew it was something serious.”
