Augusta County, VA

Officials from the Virginia State Police & the Waynesboro Police Department briefed the media Friday afternoon with the latest details in the case (now murder) of Waynesboro Police Reservist Kevin Quick. BRL confirmed the body found in Goochland on Thursday afternoon is Quick’s according to Nelson County Sheriff David Brooks. The Nelson Sheriff became involved in the case after a report was filed by Quick’s parents that he hadn’t been seen or heard from. The last place he was seen alive was Nelson County in the Afton area. During the Friday afternoon press conference, VSP officials stopped short, again, of positively identifying the body found in Goochland as Quick’s, pending official confirmation by the medical examiner in Richmond. However, a military salute was given before the conference at Fishburne and the flag there was lowered to half staff. Many police officers were wearing black ribbons across their badges as well. VSP Press Director Corrine Gellar said the investigation is now a death investigation verses a rescue.

Here’s the latest verbatim release from VSP Friday evening:


GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. – A total of five individuals are now facing charges in connection with the disappearance and death of Kevin W. Quick, 45, of Rockfish, Va. Quick disappeared Friday night (Jan. 31, 2014) while en-route from Nelson County to Albemarle County. His personal vehicle was recovered Monday (Feb. 3, 2014) at a residence in Louisa County. Quick has served as a captain in the Waynesboro Police Department’s Police Reserve Unit for many years.

Two Albemarle County siblings, Mersadies Shelton, 20, and Daniel Mathis (aka Shelton), 18, both of the 2600 block of Barracks Road West in Albemarle County, Va., were taken into custody without incident Tuesday (Feb. 4, 2014) night. The arrests took place at a City of Alexandria hotel at approximately 11 p.m. They are each charged by state police with possession of stolen property/grand larceny for the theft of Quick’s silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner. Shelton and Mathis are still being held at the Central Virginia Regional Jail on no bond.

Tuesday night a third sibling, Shantai M. Shelton, 24, was also taken into custody at the same Alexandria location on an unrelated outstanding arrest warrant issued by the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office. Shelton lives at the same address as her siblings.

Thursday night (Feb. 6, 2014), with the assistance of the Prince William County Police, state police took three more individuals into custody without incident. Gert Wright (aka Halisi Uhuru), 22, of Danville, Va., Leslie Hope Casterlow, 49, of Manassas, Va., and Anthony D. Stokes, Jr.,
31, of Manassas are being held without bond at the Henrico County Jail. Each is charged with one felony count of principal in the 2nd degree (18.2-18) and one felony count of gang participation (18.2-46.2).

Shortly before noon Thursday (Feb. 6, 2014), a body was discovered in a timbered area in Goochland County. State police and a Fluvanna County sheriff’s investigator were conducting a search along Old Columbia Road when they located the remains of a male adult. The body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond for examination, autopsy and positive identification, which remains ongoing at this time.

Investigators are still asking for the public’s help and encouraging anyone with information about Quick or any of those arrested in this case to call the Virginia State Police at #77 on a cell phone or at (434) 352-7128, or any one of the assisting agencies.

The Virginia State Police are leading the investigation into Quick’s disappearance, with the assistance of the Office of the Goochland County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Nelson County Sheriff’s Office, Louisa County Sheriff’s Office, Albemarle County Police Department, Charlottesville Police Department, Waynesboro Police Department, Prince William County Police Department, Alexandria Police Department, FBI, Office of the Louisa County Commonwealth’s Attorney and Office of the Albemarle County Commonwealth’s Attorney.
