SoVaNow.com / May 07, 2013The Virginia State Police issued the following statement Tuesday on the death of Richmond resident Linwood R. Lambert Jr. after he was taken into custody by South Boston Police this weekend:
“The Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Appomattox Field Office is continuing its investigation into the circumstances surrounding Saturday’s (May 4, 2013) death of a Richmond man.
“At 4:28 a.m. Saturday, the Town of South Boston Police Department responded to a 911 call from a local motel about a disorderly occupant. The officers took Linwood R.

He was then transported to the Blue Ridge Regional Jail, where it was discovered he was suffering from a medical emergency. Lambert was then transported by ambulance back to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
“Lambert’s body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond for examination and autopsy.
“At the request of the Boston Police Department, State Police is investigating the incident. Once state police has completed its investigation, the case will be turned over to the Commonwealth’s Attorney for final review and adjudication.”
