Anyone with information about Nelson should call Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000 or Investigator T.E. Holsinger at (804) 928-0269.

Police responded to the 5000 block of West Broad Street at 3 a.m. today following calls about a suspicious situation. Once there, officers met with family members of the victim, who expressed concerns because the victim, who worked in the area, had not returned home.

The family members and officers conducted a search of the immediate area, where a vehicle known to be operated by the victim was located. Based on evidence discovered at that scene, the ground search expanded. Family members then discovered the body of the victim a short distance away. There were obvious signs of trauma, police said, but the cause of death was not immediately determined. The state medical examiner is conducting an evaluation.
