RICHMOND, Va. – Police have released the name of the man Crime Insider sources said was found shot to death inside a home in Richmond’s Fulton Hill neighborhood Tuesday morning.

Officials said officers were called to a home in the 1500 block of Carlisle Avenue near Williamsburg Road for a welfare check at 9:30 a.m.

Once they entered the home, police discovered the body of 38-year-old Terah B. Springs of the same address.

Crime Insider sources said the victim was shot multiple times, but officials have not said how he died.

Crime Insider sources said it is believed that the body was inside the home for a couple days.

Neighbors said they heard multiple gunshots on Saturday, Dec. 23.
