RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Richmond Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify a person of interest sought in connection with the homicide of Ashley Davis.

Around 12:09 a.m. on November 16, officers were called to the St. John’s Woods apartment complex for a report of shots fired. When police arrived, they found the body of 33-year-old Ashley Davis, of the 1000 block of Finchley Place, in a wooded area across from the apartment building in the 1000 block of Finchley Place.

Police say the man in the photograph was last seen in the 5700 block of Hull Street.

“We don’t have a detailed description of this individual beyond what can be seen in the photograph,” said Major Crimes Detective Jamie Baynes. “But we hope that someone will recognize his distinctive clothing, including his hat, patterned sweater and gold rimmed glasses.”

Police previously asked for help to locate an SUV in connection to the homicide. According to the authorities, a 2000-2006 Chevrolet Suburban or Tahoe with a roof rack and tinted windows was parked on or near Finchley Place for at least an hour prior to the homicide.
