HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Gruesome details have emerged in a murder-suicide inside a West End home Thursday afternoon.

The male victim has been identified as 63-year-old Garland Lee Elgin, of Henrico. The woman involved has been identified as 30-year-old Kimberlee Anne Wood, also of Henrico.

Police say it appears Wood killed Elgin, before killing herself.

Crime Insider sources tell CBS 6 during the murder Wood mutilated Elgin's genitals, before taking her own life.

Henrico Police have not yet released a motive or how the two knew each other at this time.

Thursday, friends of the Elgin told CBS 6 the two were friends but called their relationship “tumultuous.”

Kimberlee Anne Wood's criminal past 

The peaceful sounds of Cynthia Schoonover's Henrico neighborhood were interrupted earlier this week when Kimberlee Anne Wood showed up at her mom's house and started yelling at each other.

Schoonover said Wood lived on and off at her mother's house in her neighborhood. She said the police frequently visited the home.

"It didn't bode well for our block to always have the police over there, and the fact that they were loud, noisy," Schoonover said.

CBS 6 obtained a mugshot of Wood from a previous arrest.

Court records show Wood's numerous run-ins with the police, including drug charges after officers found her driving under the influence with kids in her car last year.

And, a search warrant from last August shows Henrico Police rescued Wood after she overdosed on crack cocaine and pills.

The overdose happened in the same house as the alleged murder-suicide.

"Oh my gosh, had no idea, no idea," Schoonover said when informed that Wood had died.

Schoonover was shocked to learn the gruesome details of the murder.

"Yeah, ugh, she killed him, and then did that," she added.

The bodies were found at a home located along the 5400 block of Westbourne Drive, near Libbie Avenue and West Broad Street.

Police said someone who was visiting a resident of the home discovered the bodies and called police around 2:50 p.m.

When officers arrived, they discovered the two bodies with obvious signs of trauma.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Henrico Police at 804-501-5000 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000. Citizens can also text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by their tip.  Both Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
