Police Release Identity of Homicide Victim

April 24, 2017

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – Police have released the identity of a man found dead inside his residence in the 700 block of Chinaberry Drive.

Police responded just before 3:30 p.m. on Friday, April 21, to check the welfare of a man who had not been seen in several weeks. Officers attempted to make contact with the man and were initially unsuccessful. Upon making entry to his residence, officers located the man, who was confirmed deceased by EMS personnel.

Through investigation, police have identified Bruce M. Garnett, 67, as the victim of a homicide. Police believe Garnett was deceased in his residence for several weeks before his remains were located. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy over the weekend and established that Garnett had been stabbed to death.
