Vehicle Sought in Finchley Place Homicide

November 18, 2015

The Richmond Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating an SUV sought in connection with the November 16 homicide of Ashley Davis.

At approximately 12:09 a.m. that morning, officers were called to the St. John’s Woods apartment complex for a report of shots fired. When they arrived, they found the body of Ms. Davis, 33, of the 1000 block of Finchley Place in a wooded area across from the apartment building in the 1000 block of Finchley Place.

For at least an hour prior to the homicide, a 2000-2006 Chevrolet Suburban or Tahoe with a roof rack and tinted windows was parked on or near Finchley Place. It is described as being light in color, possibly tan or champagne. The SUV was last seen leaving St. John’s Woods on the morning of the homicide.

Detectives do not believe the occupants of the SUV live in the apartment complex.

“We are hopeful that someone in the neighborhood saw the vehicle, thought it was suspicious and wrote down the license plate number,” said Major Crimes Detective James Baynes.

Anyone with information about a vehicle matching this description is asked to call Major Crimes Detective Jamie Baynes at (804) 646-3617 or Crime Stoppers at 780-1000. Citizens can also text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip. Both Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
