Mineral man arrested in Kevin Quick case
MINERAL, Va. (WTVR) — Virginia State Police announced late Sunday that another arrest has been made in connection with the death and disappearance of Waynesboro police reserve unit captain Kevin Quick.
State police took 22-year-old Anthony White of Mineral into custody without incident in Louisa County early Sunday morning.
White was charged with one felony count of gang participation.
State police said their investigation into Quick’s death remains ongoing.
Other Suspects to Appear in Court
Three other suspects arrested Thursday in connection with Quick’s death are scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Anthony Stokes Jr., 31, Halisi Uhuru, 22, and Leslie Casterlow, 49, are slated to appear before a Goochland judge via video conferencing on principle second degree capital murder during abduction charges.
Additionally, two Albemarle County siblings were arrested Tuesday night in connection with the Quick case.
Mersadies Shelton, 20, and Mathis, 18, are being held without bond after being charged with felony grand larceny in connection with Quick’s stolen vehicle. Their home address, on Barracks Road in Charlottesville, is less than two miles from the apartments where Quick was headed.
As of Monday morning, six people had been arrested in connection with Quick’s disappearance.
Police Captain Vanishes
Quick disappeared Friday, Jan. 31, after he left his mother’s Afton home. He was going to see the mother of his four-month-old daughter, about 20 miles away. Multiple police sources believe the motive was robbery, and the crime was random.
Investigators discovered Quick’s body Thursday off Old Columbia Road in Goochland County, near the Fluvanna County line.
The medical examiner confirmed the body found was Quick late Friday evening, but has not yet released his cause of death.
A flag was lowered to half-staff at the Fishburne Military School in tribute to Quick late Friday during a news conference by state police.
“Unfortunately this case transitioned from an investigation into a disappearance, into a death investigation, and as a result we are still very actively pursuing new leads,” Corrine Geller, Virginia State Police spokesperson, said.
A Community Mourns
Hundreds of people gathered at the Waynesboro Police Department for a candlelight vigil Saturday night.
While the tragedy has devastated the entire Waynesboro community, those who knew him came together to share fond memories of the 45-year-old.
“Whenever you needed him, you pick up the phone and he was right there,” said Jason Quick, Kevin’s youngest brother.
Buck Fitzgerald, who knew Quick for over 15 years, remembered him as “the nicest guy you could ever be around.”
While Quick’s killing has shaken the tight-knit community, his family is still coming to grips with what happened.
“We’re just trying to figure out why… I mean it’s just sickening,” Jason Quick said.
