April 8, 2016

Richmond Police detectives have recently learned the true identity of the victim of a homicide that occurred last month in the Town and Country apartment complex on the city’s south side.

At the time of the incident, the victim possessed identification that led detectives to believe he was De Jesus-Baldes Noe, 31, of the 1400 block of Armfield Road. That was an alias.

With assistance from the F.B.I. and information from relatives in Guatemala, RPD detectives were able to determine the victim’s true identity as Clemente Jimenez Lopez, 34, of the 1400 block of Armfield Road.

At approximately 2:12 a.m., Monday, March 7, RPD officers were called to the 1400 block of Armfield Road for a report of a person down.
