According to a report by NBC12 in Richmond, the body of Waynesboro Police Captain Kevin Quick has been found in Goochland this afternoon.

Law enforcement from multiple jurisdictions had been searching Louisa County this afternoon for signs of Quick, who left his mother’s house in Afton on Friday, January 31, but never made it to his announced Albemarle County destination.

On Wednesday, February 5, police announced at a press conference that they had arrested three Albemarle County siblings in connection with the case at an Alexandria hotel.

Mersadies Shelton, 20, and her 18-year-old brother, Daniel Mathis,18, have each been charged with possession of stolen property/grand larceny relating to the theft of Quick’s SUV, a silver 1999 4Runner, according to Virginia State Police. The siblings live in the 2600 block of Barracks Road West, less than two miles from Quick’s planned destination at the Turtle Creek Apartments. Shelton and Mathis’ sister, 24-year-old Shantai M. Shelton, who lives at the same address as her siblings, was also arrested in the same location on an unrelated outstanding warrant issued by the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office.

All three have been denied bond and are being held at the Central Virginia Regional Jail. An award for information leading to Quick’s whereabouts has risen to $40,000. Anyone with information in the case should call State Police on a cell at #77 or at 434-352-7128.
