Gregory Nelson, Jr.
UPDATED: 2:35 P.M. – Henrico Police are seeking a Chesterfield man in connection with a murder that occurred early this morning near Willow Lawn.

Susana Cisneros, 24, was discovered dead on the back lot of the Hardee's restaurant in the 5000 block of West Broad Street, and police this afternoon announced that Gregory Lewis Nelson, Jr., 27, is wanted on first-degree murder charges. Nelson, of the 9000 block of Scotts Bluff Lane in Chesterfield, was last seen driving a black Toyota Camry with Virginia license number XSH-4405. 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.
