Arrests Made, Suspect Sought in Boulevard Homicide

Richmond Police detectives have charged two people, but are still looking for a third in connection to a homicide that occurred earlier this month.

Jimmar Payne, 21, and Sheanne U. Rivera, 20, both of St. Croix, Virgin Islands, have been arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder. Their mugshots are not available for release.

Detectives are asking for the public’s help to locate J’Wa E. Charlery, 19, also of St. Croix, Virgin Islands, on the same charge. His photo is attached.

The charge stems from the Nov. 2 homicide of Eboniece M. Escobar, 22, of New York, New York, at the Clarion Hotel at 3207 N. Boulevard just before 10 p.m. When officers arrived that day, they found the victim inside a hotel room suffering from a gunshot wound. She died at the scene.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about this crime or Charlery’s whereabouts to call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip. Both methods are anonymous.
