Police are offering few details about the apparent murder of an unidentified man and wounding of a second male after two bodies were found on the ground Saturday evening at a home in the 600 block of Kinsley Talley Road in Boydton.

The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of “bodies lying on the ground” Saturday around 9 p.m. When deputies arrived on the scene, there were two male subjects lying on the ground outside the home. Both had injuries, said Major Terry Edmonds.

One victim was transported to the emergency room at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital in South Hill and later transferred to MCV Hospital in Richmond for treatment of facial injuries. The other victim was pronounced dead at the scene. His body was sent to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Richmond for an autopsy.

Edmonds said the Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate this case, which is being treated as a homicide/malicious wounding incident. The department has no further information, pending an autopsy and identification of the victim.

In other reports from the Sheriff’s Office, Sgt. Andy Ramsey met with the victim of a potential vehicle arson on Sunday. The victim, who lives in the 1700 block of Cemetery Road in Chase City, called for law enforcement Sunday, around 9:35 a.m. after discovering an SUV on his property had been torched and the window to a second vehicle — a pickup truck — was smashed.

The victim said the glove compartment in the pickup truck was rifled through and checks as well as a tax refund card were removed.

On Friday, Deputy Duncan met with victims of two separate burglary incidents in Chase City, one on Roark Street and the other on Newby Road.

The Roark Street homeowner reported a break-in had occurred sometime between Feb. 21 and March 2. A person or persons broke into the residence and stole a Craftsman router, DeWalt roofing nailer, and a Makita planer.

The burglary at Newby Road occurred between Feb. 25 and March 2. Laminate flooring awaiting installation was removed from the home.

Anyone with information about these or any crimes are asked to contact the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office at (434) 738-6171 or Crime Solvers at 1-877-676-8477.
