The body a missing Virginia DoorDash driver and father of a newborn was found this weekend after three suspects in a murder were found in his car.
Cameron Cole, 23, was reported missing in Chester on April 28 when he failed to make a planned meet-up with his mother.
Cole’s 2016 Honda Civic EX as located last Wednesday as police investigated the shooting death of 32-year-old Ckristofer Tyler earlier that day, WTVR reported.
“Officers arrived and located an SUV that had crashed into a cement truck. Inside the SUV, an adult male, Tyler, was found having suffered a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the cement truck remained on scene and was not injured,” a Richmond Police spokesperson said. “Detectives have determined the victim was involved in an altercation with the male suspects while in a gas station parking lot when he was shot. He then entered his vehicle and drove onto Richmond Highway where he struck the truck.”
Hopewell Police located the suspects and gave chase, Richmond police said. They got the car stopped and quickly detained 19-year-old Isabelle Battle and 39-year-old Demond Williams. The third suspect, 22-year-old Xavier Brown, fled on foot, but officers chased him down and took him into custody.
Williams and Brown were charged with conspiracy to commit murder, and Battle was charged with larceny.
Richmond police said other charges were pending, but it’s unclear if those charges related to Cole’s stolen vehicle or his death.
WTVR reporter Jon Burkett reported that Cole’s body had been found late Sunday night.
Police have not yet said where he was found or how he died.
