Police make arrest in 1994 Henrico murder

Lonnie Wiseman
Henrico Police have made an arrest in connection with a 1994 murder in the county.

Lonnie Ray Wiseman, who is currently incarcerated in Iowa, has been charged with the June 13, 1994 murder of Henry Weatherford, who was found dead of a gunshot wound in his home in the 5000 block of Crenshaw Avenue that day.

Weatherford’s vehicle, an Oldsmobile Delta, was stolen the day of the homicide and recovered in Bridgetown, Mo., in July 1995. Several Henrico detectives (including some who have retired), a Henrico AFIS Examiner and law enforcement officials from Missouri, Ohio, Arkansas, Idaho and Iowa assisted in the development of Wiseman as a suspect. > Read more.

The meals tax proposal – first floated last year by outgoing County Manager Virgil Hazelett and later recommended this year by new County Manager John Vithoulkas – would generate an estimated $18 million annually, if approved by voters Nov. 5. That money would be split evenly between the operating budget and capital improvement budget of the county’s school system, officials have promised – closing a funding gap that would exist otherwise. > Read more.
